Straits Times

In the Straits Times of January 25, under the heading "Faith Healing" reference was made to Christian Science, including the statement, "It is not necessary, however, to accept a new philosophy which denies the existence of matter to grasp the unquestionable truth that mind acts effectively on the body, etc."

The world today seems to demand something more than mere faith: it needs a practical understanding of the Bible teaching, to enable men to use divine law in daily life.

Christian Science is by no means "a new philosophy"; it has as its foundation the Bible, especially the teachings of Christ Jesus. Through our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, we are enabled to understand and demonstrate these teachings. St. Paul tells us, "The carnal mind is enmity against God." In Science and Health (p. 31) Mrs. Eddy says, "Referring to the materiality of the age, Jesus said: 'The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth.'"
