Christian Science does not deal with the imagination...

Newport News (Va.) Press

Christian Science does not deal with the imagination (the fancy) except as it deals with all other disease. It does not say to man that suffering, pain, disease are only notions of the imagination, and that the exercise of sufficent will-power will overcome them. It deals with them by a scientific curative process—a mental treatment that corrects the trouble at its foundation in the mind. It comes to man bringing to him the gospel of sonship with (likeness to) God; in other words, the very truth which Christ Jesus said would "make free." It interprets this assured freedom to mean that man's rightful condition is one of health and happiness,—that as a son, a creation, of God, he is entitled to health,—and it teaches that man's mortal sense of disease may be overcome through harmony with God, that is to say, by the realization of the spiritual sense of immortal existence.
