In a recent article upholding Dr. Osler's position on the inefficiency of the saints in curing human ills, a certain reverend gentleman referred to Christian Scientists as representing the extreme form of trust in miracles. He stated that it is just beginning to be seen that this is the wrong kind of trust in God.

Christian Scientists do not believe in miracles, if by miracles is meant something which is accomplished contrary to law; nor did Jesus, for he said that he came to fulfil the law, not to destroy it. He also said that as the Father did the works, all who believed him and trusted in God would do even greater things than he did; and most of his work was the healing of "all manner" of diseases. He did not advise people to go to medical men or to study medicine, but proved to them that it was their God-given privilege to be filled with health and holiness, and that through obedience to God's law,—seeking the kingdom of heaven, loving their neighbor, and overcoming sin,—health of mind and body would result.
