Elkhart (Ind.) Truth

The Rev. R. J. Wade, in a sermon reported in a recent issue, mars his otherwise kindly reference to Christian Science by evincing a startling and very misleading misconception of the true purport of Christian Science teaching. He implies, in the first place, that the operation of Christian Science in the healing of the sick is purely on the basis of the influence of so-called human mind over matter. Christian Science is based upon Paul's admonition, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." The same truth is couched in Jesus' words, "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do." Such divine psychology includes no sense of the exercise of will-power or of the unwholesome domination of one so-called mind over another, but is characterized by that wholesome, intelligent knowledge of God, and of man's true relationship to Him as the image and likeness of the infinite, which at once precludes the possibility of evil and conduces to that absolute dominion over all conditions which is the divine right of all God's children.
