The questions in regard to Christian Science asked by your correspondent "Mabuse" in his letter, are questions which would be most satisfactorily answered by a study of the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

To human sense, unemployment is today a tragic problem. The Christian Scientist does not shut his eyes to it and say it does not exist. On the contrary, he endeavors to solve it "through right apprehension of the truth of being" (Science and Health, p. 460).

As one gains not only the letter, but also the spirit of the teachings of Christian Science, one is able to distinguish between the real and the unreal, the spiritual and the material. The result of this change of consciousness is manifested in physical and moral regeneration, in improved health and activity. To effect this change, it is necessary to start from a correct premise. God creates neither unemployment nor disease, and therefore one's true spiritual individuality or identity, which is the image and likeness of God, cannot be conscious of it. This fact, however, requires to be demonstrated in human experience, and Christian Scientists are grateful that this is coming to be recognized as a present possibility.
