Our critic asks how we account for disease in the dumb animals if disease originates in the mind. It should be understood that the animal is subject to the same laws which govern mortal man. For this reason the wild animal is less subject to disease than the domestic animal; and the animals owned by those who understand that God cares not only for man but for the beast, and for the lilies of the field, fare much better than those which are under the influence of people who depend less upon God. Isaiah prophesied, "The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them." He did not say this would come through the spiritual regeneration of the animal, but gave his reason therefor, "They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain; for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea." Such a time was to be contemporary with our attainment of the fulness of spiritual knowledge.
That men have recovered from illness accidentally or incidentally or apparently under the use of medicine, or in spite of medicine, does not in any degree affect the authenticity of Christian Science healings, but adds testimony to the teaching of Christian Science that the apparent healings of medicine are possible because of changes in the mental condition of the patient. The fact still remains, that multitudes are alive and well who showed no signs of improvement until they commenced the treatment of Christian Science.
