Your contributor of recent date, under the caption "The Soul Hereafter and the Body To-day," associates the name of Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and author of its textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," with the "Mormons, spiritualists, and the quicksands of supernaturalism," which is not only misleading but incorrect.

Christian Science is purely Christian, being based on the teachings of Christ Jesus, the apostles, and the prophets, thus adhering to the teachings of the Bible as stated in the Tenets on page 497 of Science and Health, as follows: "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life."

The power exercised by those who fairly and impartially consider the teachings of Christian Science and their efficacy in healing, know that this healing is divinely natural and not supernatural. When mankind is imbued with the Christspirit, these wonders will be repeated, but not until then. In the meanwhile let us not tarry by the wayside stumbling over imaginary obstacles, and so lose the way that leads to salvation.
