In a recent issue of your newspaper there appeared a report of a conference of clergymen, at which Christian Science was referred to several times. While these references were obviously of a friendly nature, yet they revealed some misunderstanding of this religion.

For instance, to mention Christian Science as merely "faith-healing" is misleading, although faith in God is most desirable.

Christian Science is based upon Truth, Principle. In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy states (p. 83), "Nothing is more antagonistic to Christian Science than a blind belief without understanding, for such a belief hides Truth and builds on error."

Reference was made in the report to a woman who at childbirth did not resort to medical help. Christian Scientists are careful to obey the laws of the land in such matters, but there is ample evidence to show that a case such as the one mentioned did not happen by chance. The mother's experience was obviously the result of her cultivated spiritual understanding.
