Handling a Case of Sickness

While medical physicians often admit that thought plays a part in the sickness of a patient, they do not give up their belief in a material basis of his bodily disturbance. This conviction leads to physical diagnosis and to material remedies.

Contrary to this method of handling a case of sickness, the Christian Scientist diagnoses a physical disorder as altogether a mental state, and he applies Christian Science as divine law, working to bring the thought of his patient into obedience to God. When this is accomplished, the body responds accordingly and the case is successfully healed. God's law rather than material belief claiming to be law is in control of the patient's thought, and the body, being nonintelligent and nonthinking, cannot resist this control.
