Your issue of May 20 carried a report from Duke University in which the dean is quoted as saying that "Christian Science offers a still less radical prescription, but it is still an effort to shrink away from pain, to avoid it, to ignore pain in the hope that one may thus escape it." This statement reveals a misapprehension of the teachings of Christian Science and space is respectfully asked for correction.

On page 460 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, its author states that "sickness is neither imaginary nor unreal,—that is, to the frightened, false sense of the patient. Sickness is more than fancy; it is solid conviction. It is therefore to be dealt with through right apprehension of the truth of being." Jesus' marvelous healing works were the result of his understanding of being; and spiritual understanding by means of which pain and discord of every kind are destroyed is as available today as in the time of Christ Jesus. Did not Jesus, the Way-shower, say, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free"?
