The statement made in a letter advocating the use of a certain patent medicine, by one who is styled "A Teacher of New Thought," to the effect that New Thought is "akin to Christian Science" is erroneous. If the words of this individual referring to his physical difficulty, "I gave up thinking I did not have it and took a natural medicine," are indicative of the teaching of New Thought, then such a line of reasoning of itself shows clearly how far distant this philosophy is from Christian Science.

Christian Science is purely scientific, an exact science, based upon the eternal fact that God is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient. To say that God is All is perhaps the most comprehensive term that can be used; for of course there can be nothing more than the whole. And realization of the allness of God, which is plainly a denial of anything unlike God, or good, that may seem to be in evidence, is the fundamental fact in Christian Science healing. On this basis every difficulty, physical or otherwise, can be worked out to a complete and harmonious conclusion.
