An item in your issue of April 27 claimed mistakenly that all mental cures are accomplished by suggestion. Therefore may I state that there is absolutely no relation between the spiritually mental healing method of Christian Science and the procedure of treating the sick by suggestion?

Christian Science follows the method of Christ Jesus, who healed functional and organic diseases, as well as sin, by spiritual means alone, and who said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." Hypnotic suggestion, which is one form of mesmerism, was denounced by Jesus. It had no place in the healing work of the Master, and it is not a factor in the cures accomplished by Christian Science.

We'd love to hear from you!
