The teachings and methods of the small religious sect...

Ilford Guardian

The teachings and methods of the small religious sect known as the "Peculiar People" should not be confused in any way with those of Christian Science; and the author of the article entitled "Peculiar People" in your issue of August 23 is mistaken when he writes that that sect "seems to have merged into the larger body known as Christian Scientists." The Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, contain the full statement of the Science of Christianity, and it is possible for any individual through a study of these books and through practice to learn the spiritually scientific meaning of the Bible and prove his understanding by healing the sick and regenerating the sinner. The successful practice of the scientific system of divine healing known as Christian Science accounts for the continuous growth all over the civilized world of the Church of Christ, Scientist, and the increasing recognition by people in all walks of life of the naturalness and efficacy of Christian healing.
