Toronto Mail and Empire

"Traveler," whose letter about the proposed new Medical Act appeared in a recent issue, may be qualified by experience to commend Chiropractic, but when he writes that Christian Science is another name for suggestive therapeutics, he exposes ignorance of this Science. Christian Science is actually and avowedly the direct opposite of any sort of suggestion or hypnotism. Divine Principle, the knowledge of whose law and operation heals sin and sickness, is Spirit or Mind, as taught and demonstrated by Christ Jesus. In Christian Science the so-called human mind is never appealed to for healing, but the divine Mind is the basis, cause, and source of every manifestation or sign of good.

"Traveler" is also inaccurate in saying that medical doctors now practice Christian Science, inasmuch as the practice of Christian Science is incompatible with the practice of medicine. Christian Science is the exercise of the religion of Christianity as a system of healing as well as of ethics; and those physicians who have become convinced that Christian Science is the right method of healing, and who have adopted this method of the Christ, have sooner or later abandoned medical practice for the practice of Christian Science.
