North-Western Evening Mail

Under the heading of "Chats with the Doctor" in two of your recent issues your Medical Correspondent makes some references to Christian Science. They evidence some misunderstanding of the subject which I should be glad if you would allow me to correct.

In the first article he classes Christian Science with "astrology, herbalism or what not," and writes of it under the heading of "occultism," which, according to the dictionary, means something "hidden" or "magical." Christian Science is not to be classed with the subjects named, and as it is just the pure Christianity of the Bible it is no more occult than the Gospels are.

With regard to the second article, which deals with Christian Science generally, I would say that the promises of the Bible, which are fulfilled in Christianity, include the deliverance of man from limitations, sickness, and evil of every kind, and this is brought about by the purification of man's thinking. As a man's consciousness is purified it becomes more Godlike, more divine. Christ Jesus has said, "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God."
