Clark County Review

In connection with the good editorial mentioning Christian Science in a recent issue, let me say that the teaching of Christian Science is indeed that the mortal mind produces, as the editorial declares, a belief in the reality of the diseases which it self-consciously looks for. Christian Science, however, does not maintain that this same mortal mind—a person's mortal thought—can cure anything. On page 251 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mrs. Eddy shows how the Christian Scientist should govern the body "from the higher understanding that the divine Mind makes perfect, acts upon the so-called human mind through truth, leads the human mind to relinquish all error, to find the divine Mind to be the only Mind, and the healer of sin, disease, death." An understanding of Christian Science enables one to turn thought persistently in the right direction, toward God and His perfect creation, which is all there really is, and thus to reduce even a latent fear of disease to its native nothingness.
