Anglo-Brazilian Chronicle

In the third of a series of articles recently published in the Anglo-Brazilian Chronicle mention was made of a book in which the author claims to have received spirit messages from Mary Baker Eddy and attempts to modify her teaching in its relation to spiritualism. Now, Mrs. Eddy's own views are very clearly set out in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and I beg leave to quote the following passage, from page 80 of this work: "I entertain no doubt of the humanity and philanthropy of many Spiritualists, but I cannot coincide with their views. It is mysticism which gives spiritualism its force. Science dispels mystery and explains extraordinary phenomena; but Science never removes phenomena from the domain of reason into the realm of mysticism."

Students of Christian Science and others interested in the subject naturally accept Mrs. Eddy's written word as the correct expression of her teachings, and certainly there has been no cause for heart-burning among Christian Scientists over the publication of this book.

We'd love to hear from you!
