Letters to the Press from Christian Science Committees on Publication

The Congregational Monthly

The Congregational Monthly London, England

I am sure that [the author] would have wished his article on Christian Science in the November issue of The Congregational Monthly to give an accurate picture of its subject. But unfortunately, possibly owing to acceptance of the incorrect conclusions of others, it does not do so. I am therefore writing in the hope that I can help both yourself and [him] to see that Christian Science is a good deal closer to traditional Christianity than the article appears to place it.

It is clear from [the author's] paragraphs under the sub-heading, 'Denial of Reality' that much of his misapprehension of Christian Science teaching lies in the difficulty he has in understanding what we mean by the words, 'real' and 'unreal.' Only that which is created by God do we call real, in the absolute sense; but we do not, of course, deny that sin, disease and death have a very terrible reality to suffering humanity.
