In reply to an extract from an article by a bishop which appeared in your paper, allow me to say that there is much to gain and nothing to lose by doing justice to Christian Science and its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy. All will admit that justice is a divine attribute which blesses those who follow its leadings.

Are Christian Scientists to be called blasphemous because in an earnest endeavor they strive to follow the footsteps of Christ Jesus, the Way-shower? The method of Christian Science is the same as that adopted by Christ Jesus, who was the most successful healer the world has ever known. Mrs. Eddy points out that Christian Science reinstates "primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing" (Church Manual, p. 17).

It is no new thing that the Master's teachings should be called blasphemous. Jesus was accused more than once of blasphemy; and in one instance he replied to this accusation by saying: "If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works."
