In a recent issue your contributor "Medicus" paid a kindly tribute to Christian Science as a means of physical healing through faith. Christian Science, however, is not "faith-healing" in the generally accepted meaning of that term. Christian Science purports to heal the sick through the understanding of Truth—the very truth which Jesus of Nazareth indicated when he said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 23): "Faith, if it be mere belief, is as a pendulum swinging between nothing and something, having no fixity. Faith, advanced to spiritual understanding, is the evidence gained from Spirit, which rebukes sin of every kind and establishes the claims of God."
