A professor points out that he has tried for many years "to probe the secrets of Christian Science," and says that "it was almost impossible to get at facts." But Christian Science has no secrets from the world. Any individual can purchase or borrow and read the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Most public libraries have the book.

If, however, by "the secrets of Christian Science" the professor means spiritual understanding and how to heal the sick, the sinning, and sorrowful, then I will say that material sense cannot understand these things. Spiritual understanding is gained through Spiritual sense and an earnest desire to know more of God. The Tenets of Christian Science are simple and straightforward, with no hidden meaning. They are to be found on page 497 of our textbook and on pages 15 and 16 of the Church Manual. Christian Science is based on the Bible; it is preeminenly Christian and entirely scientific, and its teaching can be proved by anyone who acquires a spiritual understanding of God.
