I should be grateful if you would allow space in an early issue for comment on an answer given in your column headed "Religious Question Box."

The answer which a Jewish rabbi made to an inquiry, "In what respect does Jewish Science differ from Christian Science?" is quite incomplete. Your readers are therefore entitled to a statement which would amplify the explanation of the rabbi.

The teachings of Christian Science are based on the Bible. The writings and works of the prophets, of Christ Jesus and his apostles, present unmistakable proof that they relied upon God, Spirit, and by so doing set aside so-called material laws to some extent. Witness Jesus' mighty works which he cited as proof, in his answer sent to John the Baptist, who inquired if the Christ had come: "Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: the blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them."
