Your contributor on the subject of Christian Science is guilty of a serious misrepresentation of this religion; and it is difficult to account for, except on the assumption that he is imperfectly acquainted with its teachings.

It is quite true that Christian Science teaches that sin is unreal in the absolute sense, but it admits that sin appears to exist in human thought and experience, and that it is unforgiven of God until it is overcome. How unjust is the insinuation that Christian Science tends to cancel the all-important distinction between right and wrong will be gathered from the following quotation (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 339): "Only those, who repent of sin and forsake the unreal, can fully understand the unreality of evil."
