It may properly be said that the aversion for drugs and material remedies in Christian Science practice is merely an inevitable corollary to the teachings of the Bible and of Science and Health that God is indeed infinite and all powerful. The human mind has quibbled much over the denial by Christian Science that there is any virtue in material medicine or material pleasure, notwithstanding that the belief in the former is one of the procuring causes of all disease, as belief in the latter is the greatest source of sin. And yet this position is the only tenable one if it be admitted that there is a God and He is infinite. Far from being an idle speculation, this is the most vital of all facts, and Christian Science demonstrates it to be true by healing the hopeless sick and the hardened sinner, where material medicine and material theology fail.

Many physicians have abandoned their old systems of healing and have taken up the practice of Christian Science. Even among doctors who still practise medicine there are many who recognize the great value of Christian Science as a curative agent and habitually direct patients to it when they have found themselves unable to heal them. Still another class is neither adopting Christian Science nor sending patients to it, but is willing that Christian Science and material medicine work side by side and that both be judged on their merits.
