In a report of a sermon entitled "Faith Healing, an Estimate and a Criticism," in your issue of July 18, there was a mistaken reference to Christian Science practitioners; and I should appreciate an opportunity to say a little regarding subjects related to spiritual healing.

Christian Scientists recognize that faith in God, divine Love, is an important factor in the individual's physical and moral improvement; and they see the necessity of cherishing and fostering such faith, for they realize that the right kind of faith is one of the first steps toward the correction of false conditions. Furthermore, they believe that faith in the Supreme Being and in His beneficent laws leads human thought naturally and normally to that higher quality, spiritual understanding, which was the basis of Christ Jesus' works. Is not this view consistent with the Master's promise to a group of his followers, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free"?
