Sunday Times-Advertiser

In a recent issue of the Sunday Times-Advertiser a correspondent, criticizing different prominent movements which have occupied the attention of thoughful people in many parts of the world, refers to Christian Science as a "religion miscalled Christian Science." For the benefit of the readers of your paper kindly allow me to say it is obvious that your correspondent is uninformed as to the teachings of Christian Science, which is founded upon the Scriptures and upon the words and works of Christ Jesus, who, recognizing one infinite Mind, God, as the supreme governing power of the universe and man, came into the world, as he declared, to bear witness unto the truth of being.

Christian Scientists recognize that Christ Jesus, because of his spiritual nature, was the most scientific man the world has ever known. His mission was plainly one of mercy. Revealing the truth about God and man, and that a spiritual understanding of the truth he taught frees mankind from a limited or human sense of God and His creation, Christ Jesus healed the sick, reformed the sinner, raised the dead, and declared that those who practiced the religion he taught could do the works he did.

Mary Baker Eddy writes in her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 340): "The First Commandment is my favorite text. It demonstrates Christian Science. It inculcates the tri-unity of God, Spirit, Mind; it signifies that man shall have no other spirit or mind but God, eternal good, and that all men shall have one Mind." Thus we see that the fundamental Principle of Christian Science is the same Principle which governed Jesus in all he said and did. This is undeniably made manifest in many authenticated cases of healing of all manner of disease in nearly every part of the civilized world through the understanding and practice of the teachings of Christian Science.
