THE ART OF PREVENTION

[Original article in French]

Two Christian Scientists were exchanging viewpoints one day on the subject of medicine. One concluded that God did not create it. But the other recalled this sentence by Mary Baker Eddy in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 142): "God being All-in-all, He made medicine; but that medicine was Mind."

So-called material medicine is of two types: curative and preventive. The spiritual healing in Christian Science—exclusively spiritual—is also curative and preventive. Mrs. Eddy, who searched deeply the modes of human thought, writes (ibid., p. 369), "The prophylactic: and therapeutic (that is, the preventive and curative) arts belong emphatically to Christian Science, as would be readily seen, if psychology, or the Science of Spirit, God, was understood."
