From the March 1919 issue of The Christian Science Journal

WHEN will men, especially those whose ostensible purpose it is to conserve the health of the race, lay hold upon the simple, scientific fact that through sin death entered into the world, and that disease is therefore but the physical aggregate of antecedent wrong thinking on the part of the human family, which ultimates in material dissolution? It follows that the only radical cure for wrong thinking must lie in right thinking, comprehended in a general righteousness, and wrought out in daily living through intelligent observance of spiritually scientific postulates. These are days of intensive medical exploitation on the part of certain autocratically inclined followers of the old school, despite the fact that epidemics and their stay are alike problematical to these gentlemen, and the so-called incurable diseases are still the bête noire of the profession.
