Baptist Record

I respectfully request permission to correct through your columns the erroneous inference that Christian Science is a "no-God religion," which appeared in an article from the Watchman-Examiner reprinted in the Record on August 16.

Under the caption "Wanted a Personal God," the writer of that article said: "When Christian Science changes God into a principle it thereby becomes a no-God religion." Among the words Mrs. Eddy employs to define God is the word "Principle," it is true, but that word is always capitalized by her when meant to apply to Deity; and in the way she uses it the word means infinitely more than and is vastly different from the meaning conveyed by the limited term "a principle." As employed in Christian Science the capitalized word "Principle" portrays the highest possible signification, including the omnipotence and self-existence of Deity.
