Freeman-Journal

In an address by a well-known physician, as reported in your paper of September 11, the speaker said, "No physician, ... Christian Science healer, or others ever shortened a case of pneumonia other than by death." The doctor's admission that his own chosen system of healing never "shortened a case of pneumonia other than by death" must be authentic, since he is in a position to speak from personal experience.

But his attempt to attach to Christian Science the failure to heal disease which he acknowledged as applicable to his own system of medicine, was anomalous and revealed also an entire misconception of that Christian teaching. The only medicine of Christian Science is divine Mind, or God, who, the Bible declares, "healeth all thy diseases." Then, to claim that Christian Science is subject to the limitations of medical treatment is tantamount to claiming that God likewise is circumscribed by a similar limitation.
