In your issue of December 1 there appeared an article entitled, "What are we to think of Christian Science?" and I shall appreciate your giving me an opportunity of replying to it.

Your contributor shows a Christian spirit in beginning his article by acknowledging that "there is truth in Christian Science," and that many have found help from the optimism which it inculcates. He refers to the following quotation from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 205): "God created all through Mind, and made all perfect and eternal." Your contributor says that if this is true, there is no place left for sin at all. Mrs. Eddy's statement has its parallel in the Bible verses: "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.... And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." It is logical to conclude that sin and its consequences arose from a mistaken or false sense of God and His creation, and that a mistake can be corrected only by the truth. Jesus, whose life-work was to destroy sin and sickness, said to his disciples, "If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Christian Scientists are proving that their lives are being made free from sin in the proportion that they continue obedient to the word of God as taught by Christ Jesus.
