The notion that Christian Science is based on suggestion could be held only by those who are misinformed or uninformed as to what Christian Science teaches, because Christian Science is the opposite of suggestion.
Suggestion, of which hypnotism, mesmerism, psychology, and their like, are but modifications, is based on the theory that man exists separate and apart from God; it is the Adam-dream of many minds, and that one human mind governs another human mind; it is the belief of life in matter, and that man is controlled by conflicting forces or laws. Our brother, whose statement calls forth this letter, points out that suggestion can be used for both good and evil, and Christian Science boldly declares that for this reason the whole thing is evil and not of God, and its use for any purpose can bring no permanent benefit. Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has brought out in many different ways the thought expressed on page 103 of Science and Health: "The malicious form of hypnotism [suggestion] ultimates in moral idiocy."
