Faith and the divine psychology

To describe Christian Science healing as a faith cure is like describing a bicycle as a wheel. Absolute faith in God is certainly necessary for Christian healing, but we need to understand God's trustworthiness in order to be thoroughly convinced of His care and healing power. We need to know what God is and our relationship to Him.

To equate Christian Science healing with psychosomatic medicine is also inaccurate. The latter attributes many diseases to mental and emotional causes. But Christian Science brought this point to light long ago. The difference lies not only in the definition of God and man but in the healing method itself.
