No one but a Christian Scientist can possibly offer a "scientific explanation of the cures made by Christian Scientists," and the reason for this is at once apparent to any one who will give the matter a moment's thought and attention. Christian Science is all that its name implies,—the Science of Christianity ; therefore to understand it one must be able to demonstrate it. How absurd, then, to claim to understand this subject better than those who are daily demonstrating its Principle, to say nothing of the attempted rejection on the part of our critics of the explanation of Christian Science as given by its Discoverer and Founder, the Rev. Mary Baker Eddy.
The great trouble with the attempted explanations of Christian Science as given by its opponents, is that they do not explain. Christian Science not only aims to cure, but does it; and the largeness of its following is the most convincing argument in proof of its accomplishing what it has set out to do.
To classify Christian Scientists with "faith healers," "witch doctors," etc., proves that this teaching is not understood by its critics. To assume that all cures resulting from practices which exclude drugs or other material administrations, are due either to Christian Science or to something necessarily allied to it, shows a rather limited knowledge of the general subject of therapeutics. Would our critic have us believe that the works of Jesus and his disciples were due to mesmeric suggestion or to hypnotism? Is prayer, for instance, to be considered as of no avail excepting as a process through which one can mesmerize himself into believing that he has no ills?
