The statement by your correspondent that "Christian Science is not Christian, and not a science, but a fanciful woman's brain dream," and, "The Christian Science sect has not its origin from Christ but from the adversary of Christ," is not consistent with the experiences of those healed of sin and sickness through its teachings.

Christian Science is turning the thoughts of men towards God; and it is probably true that there are few in civilized countries today who have not heard of someone healed or benefited by Christian Science who is living a better and more unselfish life as the result.

A Christian Scientist believes in the teachings of Christ Jesus, and aims to follow his example. Christian Science not only proclaims this ideal, but shows how it can be gained, yea, even to emulate the Master's works, which he said will be done by those who believe on him. Hence, Christian Science is a religion of love, not of words, a religion of deeds, not of creeds or of ceremonies. And it is scientific, because it demonstrates what it teaches.
