In one of his recent "Weekly Health Talks" in your paper, Dr. Phy comments upon what to him is the strange attitude of many "well-informed business-men, school-teachers, college professors, ministers, bankers, and lawyers," in the matter of their selection of healing methods. The article referred to represents him as saying, "Many of them become Christian Scientists, they devour patent medicines, patronize the advertising fakirs who promise to cure them without the knife," et cetera—a somewhat ambiguous statement, capable of being misconstrued. What he evidently meant was that some of them become Christian Scientists, while others devour patent medicines and patronize fakirs. Those, of course, who are at all informed regarding Christian Science know that Christian Scientists do not use drugs or medicines, nor resort to other material healing methods, least of all do they patronize the class of specialists to which Dr. Phy refers; for the reason that they rely entirely upon God, who, as the Psalmist says, "forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies."

Christian Scientists strive to emulate the example of Jesus, and by employing his method of healing through divine Mind—a method which is both Christian and scientific—they are enabled to heal themselves and others of all manner of sin and physical disorders. And, moreover, the religion of Christian Science is a satisfying religion which not merely heals mentally and physically, but also "meets the heart's great needs," because the healing is accomplished by spiritual means alone. Hence, those who faithfully practice its teachings neither need nor desire to seek other aid.
