In a recent Tribune there appeared a letter from Caption—of Brooklyn, describing what he says was Christian Science treatment, taken some twenty-five years ago. This communication appears under the caption, "Deafness Treated as Error, Showing How One Patient Fared under Christian Science Treatment." Since the treatment described by the captain is not in the least similar to Christian Science treatment, it seems proper and just to object to the statement as published.
In this treatment the patient was informed that he was a spirit and not deaf, and that he must declare that he was not deaf. Now this has certainly nothing to do with Christian Science, which teaches that God is the one and only Spirit, and that healing is not brought about by any thoughts concerning the body or a personal self. Christian Science heals through the power of the Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus," the Mind which has to do with God only, and which fulfils the laws of God according to the method of Christ Jesus. It has nothing to do with the manipulation or willing of the human thought in any direction. It is not surprising that dependence upon such human thought, directed, as your correspondent describes, contrary to his human reason, should not have healed. It is not fair to call this the failure of Christian Science, which through the prayer of spiritual understanding has healed many cases of deafness and all other diseases, evidence of which can be easily obtained upon proper investigation.
