It must not be supposed that Christian Scientists have any unkind or antagonistic feelings toward the medical profession. On the contrary, they have the greatest admiration for the devoted, unselfish lives led by so many doctors, and remember with gratitude the kindness they received from them in the days before they knew of Christian Science. Nevertheless they deplore the fact that so many eminent men, instead of investigating the claims of Christian Science in an open, unbiased, and scientific spirit, are content to accept the false conceptions of people who have no knowledge of this subject themselves, and can therefore only act the part of "blind leaders of the blind."

It will be universally conceded that drink and immorality are the direct or indirect causes of a very large proportion of the diseases from which the country suffers. Why, then, should it be thought an untenable position when we assert that other illnesses also have their origin in sinful or unhealthy mental conditions, and can be satisfactorily eliminated only in proportion as the morbid thoughts which produced them are eradicated from the heart of the patient? Again, what but true thoughts can rid us of false thoughts? And whence can true thoughts emanate but from God, the divine Mind, absolute Truth, unchanging Principle, the source of life, purity, peace? A clearer understanding of God's nature, a closer, more abiding sense of God's presence, a more just, generous, tender outlook on life, will do more for the health of the country than anything else can accomplish.
