In a recent issue of your paper, under the title "The Library Table," there appeared a quotation concerning Christian Science, from a book that was being reviewed, which needs correction. I wish to acknowledge the kindly intent of the authors as well as their fair-mindedness in discussing the subject of Christian Science; and it is therefore not in the spirit of reproof, but rather for the purpose of enlightenment, that this correction is made.
In attempting to explain the reason for the many healings accomplished in Christian Science, the authors make the common mistake of classifying Christian Science with mind healing and faith healing, also the mistake of thinking that the healings in Christian Science are brought about by suggestion. Christian Science has nothing whatever to do with mental suggestion, nor are its healings accomplished in a manner similar to those of mind healing or faith healing. Christian Science is founded on the teachings of Christ Jesus, and is the result of the operation of the one Mind, or God, replacing the human or "carnal mind," which Paul says "is enmity against God." It is accomplishing the same results in healing the sick and sinful by the method used in Jesus' time. To attempt to explain the healings in Christian Science by attributing them to mental suggestion is to fall into the same error that the scribes fell into, in accusing Jesus of casting out devils by Beelzebub. His reply is applicable in this case: "And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? . . . But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you."
