A kindly and interesting article under a Paris, France, date line told something of the work of Christian Science among the soldiers, but it implied that Christian Science relies on "suggestion" for the curative powers which are now well-nigh universally acknowledged as following the application of Mrs. Eddy's teachings. Permit me to offer some correction of this misconception of the modus operandi of Christian Science healing.
Suggestion may be the basis of hypnotism, but it has no part whatever in the work of the Christian Scientist. In Christian Science God is seen as the only Mind and this divine Mind is reflected by men according to their varied degrees of spiritual understanding. In proportion as men possess and reflect this divine Mind, are they equipped to heal the sick; therefore, those who possess fewest of the qualities of the mortal, or "carnal mind," as Paul phrases it, are the best reflectors of the one Mind, and, consequently, the best healers. The ability of Jesus to heal infallibly was due to the fact that his thought was consistently pure and spiritual. Regarding creation from a standpoint of absolute spirituality, he could not help healing every receptive individual with whom he came in contact. On page 476 of her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy explains Jesus' healing work as follows: "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick."
