Your issue of March 4 contains a synopsis of an address in which a doctor is reported to have replied to a question in regard to Christian Science, that "the combination of the two words ["Christian" and "Science"] was absurd; there was no science in the New Testament."

It is evident that this doctor is using the word "science" in a very limited sense. He must know from its derivation that it means "knowledge," and if the combination of the words "knowledge" and "Christian" is "absurd," what would be the use of any Christian teaching? Now, Jesus was "the most scientific man that ever trod the globe" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 313). First of all, he knew that God is infinite Mind or Spirit. He did not merely believe in God, but he had positive knowledge of God's infinitude, omnipresence, omnipotence, and omniscience. He was able to prove his knowledge by healing the sick, reforming the sinner, walking on water, multiplying loaves and fishes, raising the dead. His Christian knowledge thus enabled him to perform works which so-called natural science cannot perform or explain.
