The practice of Christian Science: demonstration, not mental suggestion

From the December 1983 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In contrast with Christian Science we might classify as "mental suggestion" that subversive technique of a so-called material mentality which seeks willful control over bodily conditions, material circumstances, or events. It may take the form of autosuggestion or a silent attempt to influence other human minds—either for good or for evil purposes.
