A professor of Edinburgh University, while speaking at the meeting of the British Medical Association, said he had "much respect for Christian Science as a form of suggestion." His words show a misunderstanding of the teaching and practice of Christian Science. A Christian Science practitioner understands disease and discord in the human mind or body to be the result of the erroneous beliefs held by the so-called carnal or human mind, and he destroys these beliefs by the spiritual truth of the divine Mind, which Christ Jesus said would make men free. One would no more use any form of suggestion in the practice of Christian Science than one would use suggestion in the demonstration of mathematics.
