From Christian Science Committees on Publication

The Spectator

The Spectator
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

In the Saturday, October 9 issue of The Spectator, in the Canadian magazine, it was most surprising to see the Christian Science religion included in an article on "Underground medicine."

The overall thought of the article, which dealt with mental concepts of the human mind and will, apparently found it difficult to discern the difference between these and the Christian approach.

Christianity, which stresses the yielding of the human to the divine will, sees a crucial difference between praying to God and relying simply on human beliefs.

Many people today are finding renewed hope and comfort in an awareness of a God of love, whom the Bible makes so richly evident as He "who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases."

To lean on [God's] love, and to strive to make it manifest in our every thought and action to all, is being increasingly recognized as true and effective prayer.
