A cablegram in your issue of today reports that the Bishop of Gloucester, when addressing doctors and nurses at Bristol Cathedral, said: "Christian Science is a religious as well as a medical heresy." Christian Science is the religion and the healing practice of Christ Jesus, the most successful religionist and healer the world has ever known.

The bishop is further reported to have said: "The point we must condemn is that it bids us cure by prayer, but at the same time it entirely neglects everything which God has given us to attain it." Christ Jesus cured by prayer, by spiritual means, alone, and so does Christian Science.

The bishop continues: "He has given us understanding by which we can study the laws of the human body. It is by that study and its application that we should attempt to cure disease." Christ Jesus never studied the laws of the human body, nor did he enjoin his followers to do so, but he healed every case that was brought to him in direct contradiction to such so-called laws, and he did so by his understanding of the ever-presence of God and His immutable law of life and love.
