In the September 28 issue of the Times-Union, the writer of a column, briefly discussing the subject of healing under the general assumption of "mind over matter," classifies Christian Science with various psychological processes. Continuing, the writer infers that the healing brought out in Christian Science has to do with the adjustment of "imaginary" ills, and says, "They serve their purpose, but just try them out on a broken leg or a case of appendicitis."

Through practice the teaching of Christian Science is shown to be demonstrable or scientific; consequently, its healing qualities extend to all phases of human discord. Mary Baker Eddy, Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 182, 183): "To admit that sickness is a condition over which God has no control, is to presuppose that omnipotent power is powerless on some occasions. The law of Christ, or Truth, makes all things possible to Spirit; but the so-called laws of matter would render Spirit of no avail, and demand obedience to materialistic codes, thus departing from the basis of one God, one lawmaker."
