In your issue of January 21, under the heading, "Hears God in Hotel Room, Evangelist Hains Declares," the writer, in his review of the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, states that "all of us belong to Adam's sinful race," and that man "clothes himself in his self-righteousness—in Christian Science, new-thought, psychology, or what not."

Kindly allow me space in your next issue to correct his statement in so far as Christian Science is concerned,—which should not be likened to the other systems of mental practice mentioned,—and to say for the benefit of your readers that Christian Science, as discovered and founded by Mary Baker Eddy, is based solely on the word and works of Christ Jesus, who "loved righteousness, and hated iniquity;" who never failed to rebuke the sin of self-righteousness, self-love, and hypocrisy, but did unfailingly bear witness unto the truth about God, his heavenly Father, whom to know aright is to be clothed with immortality and light. The Christian Science religion does not teach that man is clothed in self-righteousness, but on the contrary, according to the truth of being, he is the perfect, sinless, immortal child of God, reflecting the divine or spiritual nature of God.
