The Christian Scientist looks beyond the human mind...

Pacific Medical Journal

The Christian Scientist looks beyond the human mind to the divine Mind, God,—the Principle of man's being,—and so finds nothing which may not be trusted to the care of the creator of the universe. Christian Science is primarily a religion, and without the religious element of dependence upon God, it could do nothing.

If the practitioner of this is truly a Christian Scientist, evil influence is impossible, since the one effort is to awaken the patient to see for himself the power and perfection bestowed on man by his creator, God. Such a process is educational, and strengthens the patient's understanding and perception, thus leading him to a position where he is able to work for himself. To receive permanent healing a man must be improved mentally and morally as well as physically; indeed the physical healing is but the natural result of the truer life he has commenced to live. Some physicians are wisely warning the public against hypnotic influence; and even if results seem more difficult of attainment by a method demanding consecration to God, many would gladly seek this, in order to be sure of moral and spiritual gain at least.
