Your issue of October 17th contains a synopsis of a sermon on Christian Science in which a clergyman analyzes the words "Christian" and "Science," in such a way as to convey to your readers a complete misinterpretation of the words as understood by Christian Scientists. Take his definition of the word "Science." He has only presented one meaning of the word. The word really means "knowledge of principles or facts" (Webster's New International Dictionary); and Christian Science means knowledge of the divine Principle and rules which enabled Christ Jesus to heal the sick, to raise the dead, to walk on the water, to multiply loaves and fishes, and to find money in a fish's mouth. The science or knowledge of how these works were performed is rightly termed "Christian Science," which is the Science of the Mind of Christ as distinct from what is termed natural science or the science of the human so-called mind which deals with the material universe.

When the lecturer on Christian Science, to whom our critic refers, made the statement, "The laws of heredity are false," he was correct. This statement is corroborated in the eighteenth chapter of Ezekiel, where we read: "What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge? As I live, saith the Lord God, ye shall not have occasion any more to use this proverb in Israel."
