As reported in your issue of April 13, a speaker addressing a Y.M.C.A. audience referred to Christian Science as "an attempt to combine Christianity and science, notably through the scientific use of prayer in healing." It is gratifying to learn of this admission; for even an attempt to combine Christianity and Science is entirely worthy; and when such an effort succeeds as notably as Christian Science has succeeded, there is additional cause for gratitude. Thousands of men and women in all walks of life, through the scientific use of prayer as taught in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, have been healed of all manner of discords, showing that this truth is the universal and perfect remedy.

It will be noted that although the speaker classified Christian Science as a new religious movement, he did not classify it as "occult," either by implication or by definition. Hence, what the speaker had to say about occult religious movements had no reference to Christian Science and should not be so applied by your readers. In Christian Science there is nothing occult—secret—superstitious, or supernatural. But Christian Science is what its Discoverer and Founder says it is—"The law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony" (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 1).
