In a recent issue is an interview with one who claims to heal through other than material means, in which the statement is made that spiritual healing is not Christian Science. Inasmuch as your readers may be misled into the belief that Christian Science is not spiritual healing, space is asked for a brief explanation.

Since Christian Science is based wholly on the Bible and the words and works of Christ Jesus, its sole dependence, during the nearly fifty years since its discovery, for its uniform success in healing sickness and destroying sin, has been on the power of God, Spirit. In the practice of Christian Science no reliance is placed on any material means whatever. This is spiritual healing in all its genuineness and in all its purity, for it is the method employed by Jesus in the performance of his wonderful works.

Relying on the Bible statements that God, Spirit, made everything and called it good, and that God, infinite good, is omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient, Christian Science denies the reality of sin, sickness, and death. Evil, in all its phases, is, then, only the supposititious opposite of good, since it can have neither reality, power, presence, nor knowledge. Christian Science does not deny, however, that evil, including sin, sickness, and death, seems real to the fleshly, mortal, material mind, that carnal mind which Paul declared is "enmity against God."
