It is not contended for Christian Science that the healing through its method is miraculous in the usual sense of that term. On the contrary, it is held to be the result of perfectly natural means, available to all who will give the subject the open-minded study and earnest application essential to the practical understanding thereof.

Christian Science healing may be said to be due to the operation of divinely natural spiritual law, which is demonstrably operative for good in proportion as the obstructive qualities of human thought are overcome. The process is essentially religious, and Christian Science is in the first place a religion. Those who are regenerated mentally or spiritually through Christian Science, find as a rule that the healing of disease or some other inharmonious condition is the incidental result. "Mind over matter," therefore, does not properly describe this process, because a mere human mind influence may be as readily exerted for an irreligious as for a religious purpose, and does not necessarily involve any moral element whatever.
