In your issue of March 15, 1935, you quote a doctor as having stated: "Christian Science, spiritualism, and theosophy are the children begotten by intuition out of ignorance. They are perennial products of the human mind, appearing in a new guise in every age."

Christian Science has no connection whatsoever with spiritualism or theosophy, and it would appear from his remarks that this doctor has not studied the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and has a very incorrect concept of its teachings. This Science is based wholly on the Bible, and enjoins its students to seek after and have the Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus."

Christian Science is a religion of healing for human mind and body, and its laws are spiritual and scientific. Hence the activity of the human or carnal mind, which St. Paul says "is enmity against God," must be its antipode, and has therefore no relationship to Christian Science, which, to quote from page 185 of Science and Health, "rests on the conception of God as the only Life, substance, and intelligence, and excludes the human mind as a spiritual factor in the healing work."
