East Aurora Advertiser

In the issue of the Advertiser of June 28 appears an article by "a Berean."

Without desiring to precipitate a theological or doctrinal discussion, may I say that the author of this article very properly rejects the suggestion that Spirit and matter blend in man. The belief that Spirit and matter blend in man is grave error. I am sure that if "a Berean" understood clearly the teachings of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, he would not have suggested that this error is any part of Christian Science.

A theological bias is clearly indicated by a loose classification of Christian Science as "Eddyism." A religious movement which has more than twenty-six hundred churches and something over ten thousand public practitioners throughout the civilized world, a movement which has recently completed a large publishing house in Boston, Massachusetts, which has given to the world The Christian Science Monitor, an international daily newspaper which is acknowledged in the world of journalism to be of a high standard of the newspaper art, a religion which is safeguarding the health and morals of the individual and likewise those of the community wherever it is known and practiced—a religion with such a background, I venture to say, cannot be loosely disposed of as "a satanic error."
