In a recent letter to the editor, "Churchman" accuses Christian Science of being extravagant and foolish. This accusation was brought against the teaching of Christ Jesus nearly two thousand years ago. Paul puts it neatly this way: "For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God:... Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.... But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned."

The difficulty of "Churchman" in grasping the simple teachings of Christian Science is undoubtedly found in the fact that this Science is based on spiritual revelation, and not on the testimony of the material senses. It is not a "private interpretation" of the Bible which Mary Baker Eddy has given us, but a spiritual revelation of those things which "eye hath not seen, nor ear heard."
