In your issue of January 30 a report is given of a lecture by a clergyman. Space does not permit me to answer this clergyman's criticisms at length. Suffice it to say that a student of Christian Science would find little or nothing in common with the lecturer's concept of Christian Science and his own.

A Christian Scientist endeavors to follow the teachings of Christ Jesus' in their entirety. He heals the sick in obedience to Christ Jesus' command, through the understanding of the Christ, Truth, and not by mental suggestion. Moreover, the Christian Scientist is remarkably successful in this direction; so successful, in fact, that many of the Christian churches, including, I believe, the church to which the lecturer belongs, are finding it desirable to reawaken the people's interest in the lost element of spiritual healing, which was an integral part of the teaching of the early Christian church.

Christian Science is essentially Christian. A perusal of its religious Tenets, as given on page 497 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, would make this fact abundantly evident.
