323 — WATCH that you distinguish between faithhealing and Science. A change in belief will cause a physical change, which mortals may call a healing, but it still leaves belief in control. Science leaves God in control.
Mrs. Eddy once expressed this differentiation as follows: “One makes the healed know God; the other simply heals the physical. Faith-healing is not really healing, or else the patient would be one with God. So do not think because you heal, you are a Christian Scientist; as medicine heals as regards the senses, and so does error. A Christian Scientist heals the moral as well as the physical.”
