Christian Science does not teach that sickness is healed...

Queen's County News

Christian Science does not teach that sickness is healed through the activities of mortal mind imagination; but, on the contrary, it holds that disease is the product of this so-called mind, the effect of false beliefs entertained by it, and that healing must, and does, come through the operation of spiritual understanding in human consciousness, even that understanding to which Jesus referred when he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." This improved state of consciousness is in due course made manifest in a healthier body, a body made well by delineating upon it thoughts of purity, health, and harmony rather than sin, disease, and discord. Thus do we prove true the Apostle Paul's statement to the effect that we renew our body through the renewing of our mind. "Be not conformed," he tells us, "to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind." Bearing directly on this point Mrs. Eddy has said in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 1), "Thoughts unspoken are not unknown to the divine Mind."
