Christian Evangelist

In your issue of June 11 of the Christian Evangelist appears an article entitled, "Wanted: A Protestant Confesional," which I have read with much interest. In this article the writer refers to Christian Science in such manner as would convey the inference that Christian Science was just "some other 'new thought' cult." As this statement is misleading, as well as incorrect, may I ask that you kindly give this letter space in your publication, as a correction.

Christian Science is based entirely upon the Scriptures, upon the words and works of the master Metaphysician, Christ Jesus. In her book "Rudimental Divine Science" Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, defines Christian Science (p. 1) as "the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony." Because Christian Science is demonstrable, practical Science—"the law of God"—it stands alone, and cannot correctly be classified with "some other 'new thought' cult."
