From Letters, Substantially as Published

A statement from a bulletin of the Associates in the "Science of Society" at Yale University, as reported by the United Press in one edition of the Indianapolis Times of May 26, reads as follows: "Records of miraculous cures of saints and prophets, Christian Science and Couéism, are just beginning to find scientific explanation in psychiatry and psychoanalysis."

The article then adds, in direct quotations from the bulletin, "The shaman was able to muster to his aid the same illunderstood mental processes and to achieve successes as striking as those of later-day faith healers."

It would appear from this statement that Christian Science is in the same class as Couéism and faith-healing, but this is not true. Christian Science is based on a demonstrable understanding of the teachings of Christ Jesus. He never used suggestion or vain repetitions to heal the sick; he understood man's relation to God, as Father. Nothing is farther removed from blind faith than Christian Science, which was discovered and founded by Mary Baker Eddy.
