Practical Treatment for Children

People who do not understand the teachings of Christian Science sometimes question the stand that a student of this Science takes in regard to the treatment of disease, especially when the case is that of a young child. However, one who thoroughly and impartially investigates these teachings can see that spiritual treatment of disease through the proper application of Christian Science is practical and effective.

Those who depend on the supreme power of God, good, to heal, sustain, and protect their children find Him always available. The rules of divine healing are basically simple. They are founded on the spiritual fact that a perfect God creates all His children in His image and likeness. Therefore each of His offspring must be perfect, pure, intact. Mrs. Eddy writes: "In Science man is the offspring of Spirit. The beautiful, good, and pure constitute his ancestry. His origin is not, like that of mortals, in brute instinct, nor does he pass through material conditions prior to reaching intelligence. Spirit is his primitive and ultimate source of being; God is his Father, and Life is the law of his being." Science and Health, p. 63;
