Signs of Progress

It is the generally accepted doctrine of the great mass of Christians to-day, that the healing and other wonderful works of Jesus were miracles wrought among men to attest the verity of his words and to give credence to them as of divine origin; but that these works were only for that period and are not to be repeated, at least until his second coming.

Whatever the many differing opinions may be as to the time and manner of this second coming, the orthodox churches insist that the time has not yet arrived for the repetition of the healing works of the first century, nor for any system that does not follow along the line of material remedies in vogue when Jesus appeared. Here Christian Science takes its wide departure from the other churches. It maintains that Jesus came to teach and practise among men the things that should be taught and practised among them.
