In a letter headed, "The Crisis in the Church," your correspondent says that "Christian Science was conceived with the special object of attracting the middle and upper classes."

This misunderstanding arises, no doubt, from the fact that the teaching of this religion tends to make those who practice it more intelligent, and to raise the standard of living. That Christian Science attracts all classes is shown by the following quotations from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (Pref., p. x, and p. 518): "No intellectual proficiency is requisite in the learner, but sound morals are most desirable." "The rich in spirit help the poor in one grand brotherhood, all having the same Principle, or Father; and blessed is that man who seeth his brother's need and supplieth it, seeking his own in another's good."
