Christian Science and Anti-healing Ordinance

Florida Times-Union and Citizen

Editor Times-Union and Citizen.

A number of Christian Scientists have been questioned as to the ordinance on healing lately passed, the substance of the questions being as follows: "Does the late ordinance affect the Christian Scientist and his work?" Not at all. The statement of Councilman Perry that there is a large difference between Christian Science and practices simulating it, covers the ground. There is absolutely no connection or semblance between Christian Science and any other kind of healing, medical, magnetic, hypnotic, etc. Christian Science practice is prayer to God, and the recognition of man's spiritual estate, his exemption from condemnation of mind and body, because he is under "the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus," which makes him "free from the law of sin and death."
