Your issue of October 6 carries some statements in regard to Mrs. Eddy and Christian Science which require correction.

Christian Science is the same religion practiced by Jesus, the disciples, and the prophets. That it is the religion of Christ Jesus is proved by the way its followers are meeting with success the tests our Master required when he said: "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast our devils; ... and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."

In answer to the charge that Christian Science denies the incarnation of Christ Jesus, allow me to quote the following from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 332): "Jesus was the son of a virgin. He was appointed to speak God's word and to appear to mortals in such a form of humanity as they could understand as well as perceive. Mary's conception of him was spiritual, for only purity could reflect Truth and Love, which were plainly incarnate in the good and pure Christ Jesus. He expressed the highest type of divinity, which a fleshly form could express in that age."
