[James Perry, Committee on Publication for the Province of Manitoba, Canada, in Heimskringla, Winnipeg (translation)]

In an article which appeared in a recent issue of Heimskringla under the caption of "Skottulaekningar Nutimans," Christian Science and its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, were referred to in a manner which needs correction.

The statement that Christian Science stands midway between medical science and religion is not in accord with its teachings. Christian Science teaches its students to rely entirely upon God for healing as taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus, who according to Scriptural records did not resort to the use of drugs or hygiene in his healing work, neither did he recommend them to others. Jesus healed all manner of disease and discord, and vanquished even death and the grave through his understanding of God's power to heal and to bless mankind. In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy writes (p. 1), "The prayer that reforms the sinner and heals the sick is an absolute faith that all things are possible to God,—a spiritual understanding of Him, an unselfed love."
