LETTERS TO THE PRESS
from Christian Science Committees on Publication
Mary Burrow Johnson Committee on Publication for Virginia Times-Herald, Newport News
In a recent issue of the Times-Herald there appears a letter in which there are certain statements purporting to set forth the doctrines of Christian Science, and these statements would seem to require some amplification or explanation.
The author of the letter is correct in saying that Christian Science teaches the unreality of sin, sickness, and death, but to be understood this statement needs to be elaborated. Christian Science takes this stand for the unreality of evil and the eternality of good on the ground that the Biblical record of creation as set forth in the first chapter of Genesis is spiritual, real, and enduring. The final and culminating verse of this chapter reads, "And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." If Spirit, God, created all and declared it good, then evil has no reality except as it exists in the erroneous thinking of mortal man. This mortal, material man, of whom Isaiah said, "Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?" is the counterfeit of the real and spiritual man, of whose creation we have already spoken.
