It is good to read that people are beginning to realize that "sickness is a violation of God's law." As reported in your last issue, a certain clergyman is in agreement with the teachings of Christian Science on this point; but he is also quoted as saying he "could not think how Christianity or true Science came into their [Christian Science] scheme at all." In answering this thrust I may say that criticism of this kind is seldom heard in these days.

According to dictionary definitions, the word "science" signifies an exact, demonstrable knowledge of facts, laws, causes. Christian Scientists the world over are proving that a scientific or exact and demonstrable knowledge of God and of His laws is the only guaranty of obedience to them, and this obedience maintains them in health and harmony.

The Christianity of Christian Science is based on the teachings of the great master Metaphysician, Christ Jesus, who made the definite promise, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." For three hundred years the healing words of Jesus were carried on by the early church. In the Christian Science textbook Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 138): "Jesus established in the Christian era the precedent for all Christianity, theology, and healing. Christians are under as direct orders now, as they were then to be Christlike, to possess the Christ-spirit, to follow the Christ-example, and to heal the sick as well as the sinning."
