Christian Science healing is not accomplished by any human means, nor have its teachings anything to do with the carnal mind, but it is the direct result of true prayer. Mrs. Eddy writes in the Preface of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. xi): "The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation."

Will power, through which mental suggestion operates, is a product of the carnal mind, which Paul assures us "is enmity against God" and as such is just as likely to be used for an evil purpose as for a so-called good one. The healing and regenerating effects resulting from the ministrtions of Christian Science are the physical evidence of, or signs following, the renewing of the mind. This true method of Christ healing and saving is referred to by Westcott as follows: "Perfect conformity to the absolute—to that which is." When we consider that the absolute is the real or spiritual consciousness, we see that it is only possible to conform to its teaching through the exact knowledge or understanding of God.
