In your last issue I notice the report of an address on "Dancing and Health" to the Bedford Rotarians, in which the speaker states, "You will be helped to a better understanding of faith-healing and Christian Science when you realize that there is inside you a great battery of revitalizing current which can be set coursing through your body." This statement regarding Christian Science is quite mistaken. Christian Science has no connection with what is ordinarily called faith-healing, but is entirely based on the spiritual understanding of God, man, and the universe, as set forth in "the scientific statement of being" in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy (p. 468): "There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual." Christian Science is the application of this exact knowledge in human experience.
