PRESENT OR ABSENT TREATMENT

A Practitioner of Christian Science was asked by a friend newly interested in Science, "Which is more efficacious, present or absent treatment?" The friend was assured that Christian Scientists know from experience that both are equally effective.

In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy says (p. 179), "Science can heal the sick, who are absent from their healers, as well as those present, since space is no obstacle to Mind." It must be clear, then, that the distinction made by Christian Scientists between what they term absent and present treatments simply indicates either the absence or the presence of the patient, not of the treatment itself; nor does it indicate the place from which it is given.
