A writer states that "Christian Science was born through lack of attention on the part of the medical profession to mental suggestion in the treatment of disease," thus by inference at least likening Christian Science treatment to mental suggestion. Now every student of Christian Science knows that mental suggestion, hypnotism, and mesmerism (for they are all synonymous) are diametrically the opposite of Christian Science. Those who practice these occult teachings rely entirely on the human mind in their endeavor to produce results, while Christian Scientists rely entirely on the divine Mind, or God, for healing from sickness as well as sin. In her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy devotes one entire chapter to this subject, making very plain the great gulf that exists between Christian Science practice and all other forms of mental practice.

In Biblical times the scribes and Pharisees made the same accusation against Jesus' healing work. He answered them by saying: "And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you." Christian Scientists know that the human or mortal mind is the cause of all discord and disease and therefore it would be folly to rely on the same mind to destroy what it causes.
