In the review of Dr. Cutten's book, "Three Thousand Years of Mental Healing," I note that Christian Science is classed as one of the many forms of mental healing which have appeared throughout the ages. The term "mental healing" is defined so as to include "any cures which may be brought about by the effect of the mind over the body." Now, paradoxical though it may at first sight appear, in actual fact Christian Science has less in common with all such methods of mental healing than any other curative system known today. Far from regarding as a healing agent the human or carnal mind, with all its fears, weaknesses, and mistakes, Christian Science comes to set men free from the tyranny of their own and other people's beliefs, by revealing to them their true and scientific relationship to God, the one supreme, infinite, ever-present Mind or intelligence, the all-wise and all-loving Father, the sender of every good and perfect gift, "with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
Christian Science says to the sufferer, in the words of the great Master, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Thus the disciple of Christian Science, while he may begin with faith in the goodness of God, must advance to a scientific and absolute understanding of the perfection of God's nature as the life-giving, living Principle of the universe, before he can succeed in freeing himself or others from the multitudinous fears and beliefs in evil which result in sin, sickness, and death. He must deny himself, take up the yoke of him who was "meek and lowly in heart," rise above all superstition, and daily endeavor to gain that Mind which was in Christ. In the words of the Christian Science text-book, he must "let unselfishness, goodness, mercy, justice, health, holiness, love—the kingdom of heaven—reign within ... and sin, disease, and death will diminish until they finally disappear" (Science and Health, p. 248).
