TRUE PREVENTION

What shall be the attitude of Christian Scientists toward those who seek to alleviate the physical and mental suffering of mankind through medical research? In "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" Mary Baker Eddy writes (p. 151), "Great respect is due the motives and philanthropy of the higher class of physicians."

A Christian Scientist has no quarrel with those who seek the solution of human problems through material means, although he does not agree with them. In Science and Health our Leader points out that everyone has the right to live according to his convictions. She advises Christian Scientists not to condemn their brethren who look to material medicine for information or healing and says that our motto should be (Matt. 7:1), "Judge not, that ye be not judged."
