To correct one or two misapprehensions which may remain after the recent correspondence into which Christian Science has been brought in your columns, and particularly a letter in your issue of December 15, I should be glad if you would grant me a little further space. Christian Science is founded upon the Bible. The first tenet of Christian Science as given by Mrs. Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 497) is: "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life."

Christian Science is practical; it demands demonstration. It is not just a theory; it is Science. A true Christian Scientist is daily proving his understanding of it and so becoming a better man or woman. Mrs. Eddy has said on page 37 of her textbook: "It is possible,—yea, it is the duty and privilege of every child, man, and woman,—to follow in some degree the example of the Master by the demonstration of Truth and Life, of health and holiness. Christians claim to be his followers, but do they follow him in the way that he commanded? Hear these imperative commands: 'Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect!' 'Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature!' 'Heal the sick!'"

We'd love to hear from you!
