Under the title "Christianity and Christian Science" a critic writes to the Sylter Inselbote. It is not possible to deal with every point that needs correction, but I should like to reply to some of them.

The idea that human will-power is sufficient to heal sickness without doctor or drugs is not to be found in the Christian Science teachings. No one is truly healed by will-power, but rather through knowing that God is almighty, all-present, all-helping Love. "Call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me." This is as true and demonstrable today as when it was written, as Christian Science is proving.
