In a recent issue appeared a report of a lecture on Christian Science delivered in the Chapter House of St. Mary's Cathedral. Allow me to make some corrections of the statements therein contained.
Christian Science does not profess to make any additions to the sum total of Truth. Anything that is true, in the absolute sense of the word, has been here from all eternity. The mission of Christian Science is to remove the dust of ages, the prejudices and ignorance which have so long obscured the teachings of the gospel, and to enable the men and women of today to carry out the Master's commandment to heal the sick.
The assertion that Mrs. Eddy's method of healing was taken from Phineas Quimby can be repudiated, not only on historical grounds, but on the fundamental differences between these methods. Dr. Quimby, as he was usually called, was a mesmerist. He believed that he possessed a personal power of healing which he could not account for, and which he was unable to communicate to others. Mrs. Eddy's "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" is a scientific text-book, enabling all who will follow the teaching therein set forth to heal the sick. Practically every member of a Christian Science church is able to heal to some extent. The fundamental basis on which the healing is wrought is the recognition of God as the only Mind, cause, law, and power. Such a recognition begins at once to destroy for each student his belief in a personal power or mind of his own. It is therefore diametrically opposed to the teachings of Mr. Quimby and of all others who employ hypnotism and suggestion.
