The author of a news dispatch published in your paper recently gives incorrect information when he says that because of the considerable number of deaths among Christian Scientists, the "leaders" of the movement in England have approved a policy of calling a doctor instead of relying exclusively on "mind discipline." Christian Science practice is the application of divine law; and when correctly applied it heals the sick. This can be easily verified by the authenticated testimonies appearing in the weekly and monthly publications of The Christian Science Publishing Society of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. The so-called "leaders" referred to in the dispatch are not members of the church—The Mother Church—organized by Mary Baker Eddy. Her church will always rely exclusively upon God for healing. It is incorrect to characterize Christian Science as "mind discipline." Such is the practice of will-power, concerning which Mrs. Eddy has written (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 144): "Human will-power is not Science. Human will belongs to the so-called material senses, and its use is to be condemned."
