What Is Christian Science Practitioner?
What are the means and methods of trustworthy Christian Scientists?
These people should not be expected, more than others, to give all their time to Christian Science work, receiving no wages in return, but left to be fed, clothed, and sheltered by charity. Neither can they serve two masters, giving only a portion of their time to God, and still be Christian Scientists. They must give Him all their services, and “owe no man.” To do this, they must at present ask a suitable price for their services, and then conscientiously earn their wages, strictly practising Divine Science, and healing the sick.
(Rudimental Divine Science. 13:24–7)

While this letter specifically addresses Journal -listed Practitioners, the same holds true for all those engaged in this healing ministry.
