In recent issues of the Gazette, an article mentioned a certain Californian and cited various misleading statements derogatory to Christian Science and Christian Scientists that were set forth in books of which he is the author.

The Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy are the textbooks of Christian Science. Science and Health does not take the place of the Bible, as mistakenly implied by one of the citations quoted in the Gazette. The fact is that the writings of Mrs. Eddy confirm the Scriptures and unlock their treasures. Christian Scientists accept without reservation all the words and works of Christ Jesus, and they strive to follow his example.

In strict accord with the Master's teaching, this religion destroys all types of discord by spiritually mental means. Contrary to an inference in one of the quotations in the article, Christian Science does not countenance oppression and exploitation; for these wrongs are among the errors that fall before the effectual application of the teachings of Christian Science.
