In your issue of November 10 there appears a synopsis of an address by a clergyman which calls for a reply. He says, "Christian Science possesses half truths, to which some of its tragic failures are attributable." Christian Science is based on the infinitude of God, Spirit, and the perfection of His spiritual universe, including spiritual man; and every conclusion in Christian Science is drawn from this premise. It contains no "half truths," as our critic suggests, but is demonstrable in proportion to one's spiritual understanding of its divine Principle. It cures organic as well as inorganic disease, and no one who is in a position to judge can entertain a doubt on this subject.

When Christ Jesus was faced with what our critic terms "the stark realities of life," he destroyed the evidence of the physical senses, showing that he did not consider the evidence of these senses to be the reality of being. He walked on the water, multiplied loaves and fishes, healed the sick, and raised the dead, thereby proving the evidence of the physical senses to be illusive. On page 223 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy writes, "Sooner or later we shall learn that the fetters of man's finite capacity are forged by the illusion that he lives in body instead of in Soul, in matter instead of in Spirit."
