Weekly Post

In the last weekly article under "Health Hints," your medical correspondent confines his remarks to a eulogy of the work of a certain doctor. The doctor is credited with many convincing statements and quotations affirming his views of the mental nature of disease, and though your medical correspondent finds difficulty in agreeing with them, he frankly admits such views to be "a side of medical treatment that has been too much neglected in the past."

While recognizing the necessity "to correct the neglect," yet in a very unfair and unintelligent remark he spoke of what he termed "the absurdities of Christian Science" as an extreme method of those who desire to establish these corrective ideas. Your correspondent concludes his article with an important quotation by "one who was no mystic, but a highly trained physician," in these words: "I assert confidently that there is no known reason why the cure of organic disease, however defined, should not follow the exercise of faith and prayer."

Christian Science teaches the allness of God; it teaches that man is the son of God, possessing by reflection all the qualities of the Father; that the understanding of this can be exercised through faith and the prayer of affirmation, proving man's God-given dominion over all diseased and discordant conditions, conditions which do not originate in God. Healings of all kinds of diseases, functional and organic, are taking place daily in the experience of Christian Scientists. Such healing is therefore the established fact, as clearly admitted by this doctor.
