My attention has just been called to the interesting and instructive sermon of the rector of St. Mary's, March, reported in your issue of July 26th.

The preacher makes a generous acknowledgment of the part played by Christian Science in rediscovering "the neglected powers of faith and prayer," but takes exception to its teaching the unreality of pain and disease. He wisely refers to our Lord's attitude on the subject as "the one sure test" for theory and practice, and tells us that "he treated disease as the work of evil powers to be conquered by the kingdom of God." The question then arises, Did Jesus regard the powers, or power, of evil as a reality—a real, substantial opponent to the sovereignty of the Almighty? or did he understand evil in all its forms to be an imposture, a false claimant to power, a suppositional opposite to omnipotent and omnipresent Love—in his own words, "a liar, and the father of it;" in the language of John, "that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world"?
