As reported in a recent issue of the Star, a doctor of Louisville, Kentucky, head of the technique department of the Osteopathic Association of America, in an interview with a representative of the Star, referred to Christian Science as the best exponent of psychotherapy. While the doctor's feeling toward the healing practice of Christian Science is evidently most kind, it is also evident that he is much mistaken as to the nature of this healing system. Psychotherapy has but one explanation in the world of medicine, and there it is called suggestive therapeutics. It must be stated with all possible emphasis that the healing method of Christian Science has nothing whatever in common with suggestion. It will be readily admitted by those who believe in suggestion as a remedial agent that it represents an effort of the so-called human mind to control other human minds, and so improve bodily conditions. Whereas in the practice of Christian Science, God, or Truth—the infinite divine Mind—is recognized as the sole governing power. This is the Mind to which the Apostle Paul referred when he wrote, "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus." This is the mental power which overcomes human ailments of mind and body in the practice of Christian Science.
