Letters to the Press from Christian Science Committees on Publication

Union Review

Miss Johanna H. Griffiths, Committee on Publication for the Transvaal, Union of South Africa
Union Review, Pretoria

It is gratifying to note in an article entitled "British Tradition and Anglican Faith," in your recent issue, that your contributor stresses, among other points, the necessity of inculcating spiritual values in the boys at school. May I, however, beg the courtesy of your columns to correct a misconception of Christian Science which he entertains when he classifies it as "a cheap and easy humanistic religion."

Christian Science is a demonstrable religion, based on the Scriptures and the life and works of Christ Jesus. Its teachings are purely spiritual, leading one on and up to God. One of the religious Tenets of Christian Science reads as follows (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 497): "And we solemnly promise to watch, and pray for that Mind to be in us which was also in Christ Jesus; to do unto others as we would have them do unto us; and to be merciful, just, and pure." To live and work in accord with the Mind of Christ is a most solemn undertaking, requiring consecrated and earnest endeavor to fulfill.
