In a recent issue of The News, an address given at the Propylæum, on "The Secret and Law of Suggestion in Child Training," is reported, in which there is an undoubted intention to be kind to Christian Science; but it is liable to confuse your readers, and I shall appreciate the opportunity to make a brief statement of what Christian Science teaches.
The speaker is reported as saying in the sentence immediately preceding the statement that Christian Science heals, that mesmerism, psychology, hypnotism, and suggestion are the laws of God, and the inference is that Christian Science agrees with this doctrine. In Christian Science, however, we learn that God is Mind, and that in reality man is the reflection or expression of Mind, and is governed only by the law of Mind; the same Mind to which St. Paul referred as being in Christ Jesus. The opposite of this is the Adam-dream of many minds, with each mind having power to govern or control the other; it is the belief of mind in matter, and that man reflects both good and evil, and that evil is as real and powerful as good. Hypnotism, mesmerism, and suggestion, therefore, being but different names for the belief of one human mind controlling another human mind, are the direct opposite of Christian Science.
