The statement, "The so-called Christian Science, no doubt, would have remained the exclusive property of the late Mrs. Eddy, had the psychic element in disease been adequately recognized and intelligently treated by our immediate predecessors," needs examination.
Christian Science is more than an agency for healing disease by mental means; it is a religion, a restatement of primitive Christianity. One might with as much propriety argue that Jesus' message and works might have remained his exclusive property had the physicians of his day known how to deal with the mental aspects of disease; but Jesus healed through scientific, spiritual means, which brought moral and spiritual regeneration to the one healed. Do the physicians even claim to do this? Christian Science does. Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, has said of its purpose: "Healing physical sickness is the smallest part of Christian Science. It is only the bugle-call to thought and action, in the higher ranger of infinite goodness. The emphatic purpose of Christian Science is the healing of sin" (Rudimental Divine Science, p. 2). The medical men of to-day are doubtless doing their best with the "psychic element in disease," yet Christian Science continues to grow. This continued growth is the result of the healing of disease, sin, and other untoward conditions by the same spiritual means—the result of applying understandingly a scientific religion to the various problems of human life.
