A local Member of Parliament, in your issue of December 11, is reported as implying that the Christian Science church has a different moral standard from the Christian church in general. Will you allow me to correct this false impression?

The Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount are foundational in the teaching of Christian Science. Throughout her writings Mrs. Eddy has held up this supreme standard for life and conduct, and urged it upon her students. In "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany" (p. 129), she says, "Accept my counsel and teachings only as they include the spirit and the letter of the Ten Commandments, the Beatitudes, and the teachings and example of Christ Jesus."
