Red Deer Advocate

The first portion of the article, "The World of Dreams," in a recent Advocate is interesting, and much of the writer's attitude is appreciable. But the Christian Scientist recommends that inquirers go directly to the writings of Mary Baker Eddy for the fundamentals of Christian Science. Particular attention should be given to the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," wherein Mrs. Eddy presents the full statement of Christian Science. Sufficient perusal of it in conjunction with the Bible satisfies unprejudiced students that its idealism reiterates the Scriptural teaching, repeats the healing and regenerating works, and is replete with the spirit of Christ. Indeed, such perusal brings spiritual awakening and proof of Christian healing.

In the last portion of the article the fundamental difference between good and evil is in question. Use of light and darkness as symbols may serve to illustrate how Christian Science applies in human experience. It is natural to know light and work in it. Wherever light comes, it dispels darkness. The more of it we use, the less are we in darkness.

In Christian Science it is natural to know and understand God, and the ever-available, infinite goodness and love of God, good. Then it is natural to use this understanding of God constantly to dispel from conduct and experience the effects of contrary beliefs and theories of sin, sickness, evil. Daily study of the Bible, and Science and Health, enlightens thought and improves one's practice in this Christly endeavor.
