The Truth Seeker
We are in no position to know whether or not "faith-healing cults repudiate sanitation and those preventive measures that have done more for health than medicine," as your editorial of June 6 declares, but we do know that Christian Science does not repudiate them. As a rule, Christian Scientists will be found to be more careful than any other class of people in observing all reasonable sanitary and quarantine regulations. Contrary to the opinion of your writer, Christian Science does not ignore prevention. Indeed, it is the most effective preventive method known today, and it prevents by teaching mankind, as Mrs. Eddy writes on page 210 of "The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany," to keep their "minds so filled with Truth and Love, that sin, disease, and death cannot enter them."
The fact that Christian Science congregations are made up largely of those who once suffered from diseases which the physicians had given up as incurable, is proof positive that the Christian Science method is more efficacious than materia medica. As to its being suicidal for people to have recourse to mental healing, permit us to call attention to the fact that about one hundred thousand people, including nearly forty-five thousand children, die annually in New York state under some form or other of medical treatment, while failures under Christian Science treatment seldom occur. We leave it for your readers to judge the relative merits of medicine and Mind.
