One of a continuing series answering questions from the Field on the public practice of Christian Science. The next article will appear in May.
Will you comment on the ethics of Christian Science practice in regard to the practitioner-patient relationship?
Jesus, the master Metaphysician, set forth the basis of all ethics in what is universally referred to as the Golden Rule. Mrs. Eddy included it in the sixth tenet of Christian Science (see the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p. 497). This rule, as stated in Matthew, reads, "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them."Matt. 7:12.
