A clergyman's column in your issue of October 5th contained some misleading remarks. The statement to the effect that Christian Scientists regard disease as an "illusion" calls for an explanatory statement.

Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in her book, "No and Yes" (p. 4): "Disease is more than imagination; it is a human error, a constituent part of what comprise the whole of mortal existence,—namely, material sensation and mental delusion. . . . On the ground that harmony is the truth of being, the Science of Mind-healing destroys the feasibility of disease; hence error of thought becomes fable instead of fact. Science demonstrates the reality of Truth and the unreality of the error." Jesus taught his disciples and followers to heal (or destroy) sin, disease, and death. He said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." There is a multitude of people scattered all over the world who turned to Christian Science for aid when in dire need of physical healing, many having been pronounced incurable by physicians, and are now healthy and happy, praising God, "who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases."
