That a doctor "holds no disrespect for the spiritual phase of Christian Science," as he is reported as saying in the issue of your paper of October 25, is appreciated. He is further reported as saying, however, that "a system of scientific healing does not exist in Christian Science." I shall appreciate space in your columns for this letter of correction and refutation of this doctor's statement.

According to Webster's dictionary, "science" is defined in part as "knowledge; knowledge of principles or facts." From the same source, the meaning of the word "heal" is "to make hale, sound, or whole." A scientific system of healing, then, is a knowledge which would result in health or wholeness. Christian Science is the knowledge of the absolute truth about God and man and the universe, which, when realized, results in the healing of all manner of disease. It is the truth which Christ Jesus declared would make men free.
