In his comments at the close of an article on health which appeared in a recent issue of your paper, the writer, a clergyman residing in a distant town, displays an apparent lack of understanding in his reference to Christian Science practitioners. He also mistakenly classifies Christian Science with faith-healing.

Christian Science practice is the exercise of spiritual understanding of the law of God. The Christian Scientist learns to trust all things to the wisdom of God, knowing that God has given man dominion over every phase of evil, whether it be in the form of sin, sickness, sorrow, lack—in short, everything unlike Himself. Christian Science teaches men how to lay hold on this dominion through a knowledge of the truth, and in the ratio of their spiritual understanding they are able to demonstrate the divine healing Principle of this Science for themselves and for others. In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes (Pref., p. x): "The divine Principle of healing is proved in the personal experience of any sincere seeker of Truth. Its purpose is good, and its practice is safer and more potent than that of any other sanitary method."
