North Bergen Weekly, Westwood

In your issue of November 16, it is reported that a well-known local Bible student in a recent address to a Bible study class said, in part, "that the so-called emancipation of woman is rebellion against the laws of the creator; . . . and that the false religions of the time, such as Christian Science, new-thought, spiritism, theosophy, and others, are all the work of Satan and nearly all originated and carried on by women," several of whom he mentions, and says that they are all "out of their proper spheres and thus susceptible to the wiles of the devil."

For the benefit of the readers of your paper, I ask you kindly to publish this letter in your next issue, in order that a vigorous protest and refutation may be lodged against his irreverent reference to Christian Science and his aspersions regarding its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, to whom he refers in his article; and to say that the Christian Science religion should not in any way be confounded or coupled with new-thought, spiritism, theosophy, and the several other modern methods of mental practice enumerated in his article.

Christian Science is founded on the Bible and upon the teachings of Christ Jesus, who came into the world, as he declared, to bear witness unto the truth of being. The fundamental basic Principle governing Jesus and his teachings was God, the only cause and creator of the universe and man. Christian Scientists, in the practice of their religion, which consists of prayer to God to heal the sick, reform the sinner, and comfort the sorrowing, recognize that the same eternal Principle, operative in Jesus' time, is to-day available in the emancipation of mankind from all manner of illness. Christ Jesus declared, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
