Christian Science cannot properly be classed among "healing fads and quackeries," as implied by a doctor in a recent lecture. Mary Baker Eddy says, "Christian Scientists ... are not quacks, ... but they are leaders of a reform in religion and in medicine, and they have no craft that is in danger" (Message to The Mother Church for 1901, p. 30).

As a child Mrs. Eddy was physically frail but spiritually strong, and her physical invalidism continued until she was about forty years of age. During these many years of suffering she tried various systems of material healing without permanent relief. The climax came in 1866 when she was seriously injured, and at that time her long search was rewarded by the discovery of the spiritually-mental healing method employed by Christ Jesus. Through this discovery, she was healed. As the discovery unfolded to her, she utilized her growing understanding of Jesus' method and cured promptly and permanently, by spiritual means alone, case after case of chronic and functional disease as well as of sin. Thereby she proved that the method she employed was the same as that practiced by Christ Jesus.
