In reply to an article entitled "Healing with No License," in a recent issue, permit me to assure you and your readers that Christian Scientists have no desire to amend the medical practice act in so far as that act applies to the practice of medicine, but they certainly have a desire to amend it in so far as it goes outside its domain to place spiritual communion with the Almighty in the same category with drugs and surgery and to drag the law of God down to the level of human codes. God, not man, spiritual understanding, not human knowledge, is the healer in Christian Science.

The attitude of the medical profession toward Christian Science is not unlike that of the Ephesians, when the silversmiths cried for the blood of Paul because his preaching was interfering with their trade of making shrines for the worship of Diana. "Ye know," said Demetrius to his fellow craftsmen, "that by this craft we have our wealth," but "this Paul hath persuaded and turned away much people, saying that they be no gods, which are made with hands."

We'd love to hear from you!
