Sandusky (O.) Register

With reference to the editorial comments as to the cure of locomotor ataxia through Christian Science, it should be stated that Christian Scientists do not claim that a cure is effected through their treatment in every case, for they have not yet learned how to apply the Principle of this Science with such certainty as to avoid an occasional failure; but they have satisfied themselves through investigation and their own personal experiences that there have been many cases of permanent cures of such diseases through their system of healing, and they have abundant confidence that similar results can be secured in other cases through the same method of treatment.

Christian Science does not teach that disease "is only an imagination." It teaches that sickness is a solid conviction in the consciousness of the patient, and that it should be grappled with and cast out in the most effectual manner. Christian Scientists recognize sickness as a condition apparent to the physical senses, an emanation of the carnal mind which, according to St. Paul, "is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be;" hence their denial that sickness is a creation of God, the divine Mind, whose works are good and endure forever.
