Do Christian Scientists Heal by the Power of Divine Mind or through Human Will?

Boston Times

IT is quite generally conceded that Christian Science does really cure. Some, however, are not willing to admit that the results produced by the practitioners of this faith are really effected by divine power. This is, doubtless, due to the smallness of faith extant in the world to-day.

Speaking from my own experience, I am led to say that previous to my having studied Christian Science I had faith in God, but I am not sure that I had faith in my prayers. This is not strange when I consider how little result I saw from them. Yet I must confess that my prayers, crude as as they may have been, were a stay to me from childhood, since they perpetuated a love of the pure and good, and have been in a large measure a preventive of sin. Through Christian Science I have learned more of God, something of His nature and essence, and how to approach Him in a manner to bring out better results.
