In an editorial appearing in a recent issue of your paper you quote a doctor as referring to Christian Science and Couéism in a way that might lead some of your readers to believe that they are, in some respects, similar; but this is not the case. One might also infer that a "mere negation" of disease is the method of Christian Science.

Couéism deals with the human or carnal mind and bases its claims of healing upon will-power or the mesmeric effect of this so-called mind upon the body. This is the very opposite of the teachings of Christian Science.

On page 339 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy makes this statement: "The basis of all health, sinlessness, and immortality is the great fact that God is the only Mind; and this Mind must be not merely believed, but it must be understood." Christian Science healing is the result of the understanding of the oneness and allness of Mind, and that man, created in God's own image and likeness, is as perfect as the Mind that created him.
