Extracts from Reports of Christian Science Committees on Publication

Although nine letters of correction had to be written during the year, as compared with seven in the previous year, five were duplicate letters to different papers refuting a statement, made by two medical men, that Christian Science was akin to magic. However, it would appear, according to the articles written by these medical men, that both had witnessed healings through Christian Science which they could not explain from a medical point of view.

It was reported to the Committee that a Glasgow clergyman, in the course of a sermon, not advertised as dealing with Christian Science, said, "Christian Science is doing more good for humanity today than any other religion in the world."

In the Glasgow papers this year there have appeared three helpful letters from non-Scientists in reply to critical references to Christian Science. One of these contained the following: "I am not a Christian Scientist, but I have met many who are and many who have benefited greatly by following the Christian Science teaching."
