Opbouw

In Opbouw of September 3, a psychiatrist states that he finds the source of Christian Science healing in the exorcism of the people of India. Such a statement gives an unfavorable and incorrect impression of Christian Science. No righteous cause is served by misunderstanding, and for this reason I am asking space for a reply.

Jesus, the perfect Master, understood the language he must employ in order to be understood by the people of his time. When he spoke of casting out devils he simply meant that evil does not belong to man, and his understanding of this had a freeing influence on the self-condemned, helpless thought of the sick and sinful. With the word "devils" he indicated that evil obtains in human thought, and not in unconscious, irresponsive matter.
