In the article "Spiritual Healing for Unitarians," in your issue of February 9, several statements are made about Christian Science which are incorrect.

The teachings of Christian Science are both logical and rational. On pages 467 and 468 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes: "Reasoning from cause to effect in the Science of Mind, we begin with Mind, which must be understood through the idea which expresses it and cannot be learned from its opposite, matter. Thus we arrive at Truth, or intelligence, which evolves its own unerring idea and never can be coordinate with human illusions." Christian Science is the Science of Christianity, and because it is Science its teachings require to be set forth with a firm but loving accuracy of statement. To depart from the true standard would involve confusion, and loss of the power to demonstrate the practicability of its teachings in human experience.
