Just how difficult it is for the casual inquirer to discern clearly and accurately the deeper meanings within the teaching of another's religion is clearly illustrated by [a reporter's] remarks on Christian Science. May I ... correct certain of the misunderstandings his article may have given to your readers.

[The reporter] avers that Christian Science begins by asserting that sin, disease and death do not exist, but this is not so. Christian Science begins by asserting the allness and goodness of God, the one creator of all that really is. Logically, the conclusion which follows this premise is that sin, disease and even death itself, being contrary to His nature, and, therefore, lacking in origin in God, can exist only so far as belief in and acceptance of them persists. Just so are mistakes in arithmetic, themselves entirely foreign to the science of mathematics, overcome.
