From Letters, Substantially as Published

It is not the desire of this Committee...

[Benson Tatham Woodhead, Committee on Publication for Lancashire, England, in the Burnley Express and News]

It is not the desire of this Committee in any way to enter into controversy with regard to the personal religious beliefs of anyone. A Christian Scientist claims the right to accept and practice the teachings of his choice, and he is glad to grant the same freedom to others. The purpose of a letter such as this is not to attack the religion of another, but to endeavor to make the teaching of Christian Science clear.

Referring to what a certain clergyman says in a recent letter, Christian Scientists hold that the teachings of the Bible fully confirm those of Christian Science with regard to the unreality of matter. For instance, Paul says: "For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be." And he adds: "Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God."
