The writer of the item, "Nature and Morals," in your issue of April 11, offers entirely mistaken views about Christian Science. Christian Science is based upon the Scriptures; all its teaching and practice are strictly in accord with the inspired Word of the Bible.

In individual experience with temptations Christ Jesus' example is our mode. When temptations assailed him he denied and dismissed them with his clear, practical understanding of spiritual truths—supporting his wholehearted obedience to God's law. This Christly mode of negativing evil is what Christian Science teaches and fosters. With this divine understanding and its power our Saviour healed all manner of sickness and disease among the people to whom he preached the gospel of the kingdom. Christian Science has reinstated primitive Christianity and its healing ministry.

There is, of course, a right consideration due to the Christly quality, innocence. Our Saviour surely taught it when he urged his followers to be as perfect as the perfect Father, God; Daniel declared it had preserved him in the lions' den; the Psalmist sang of it as giving him access to God's altar; and the great apostle no doubt thought of it when he declared that to the pure all things are pure. We may be sure that the right understanding of innocence is always associated with spiritual insight and practical wisdom in present experience.
