The Appeal of Christian Healing
FORTUNATE is it, that the things of God stand fast, unmoved either by the condemnation of foes, or the praise of friends. Christian Scientists are not disturbed by the misjudgment of those who misunderstand their faith, but they do rejoice in every indication that the truths of their faith are appearing to those who are looked to as religious guides, and whose enlightened convictions are sure to prove avenues of healing for others.
The late Dr. Joseph Parker of the City Temple, London, has been recognized as a man of rare endowment. Spiritual perception, sincerity, earnestness, reverence, love,—all these contributed to a life of unusual glow and effectiveness. "A great man with a great theme,—it is a dull-eyed soul who saw not a great spirit with mighty experiences looking out of the windows of the house which he inhabited,"—thus has one spoken of him, who knew him well, and it is this man, a life-long student of the Bible, who has written the paragraphs that follow respecting a distinctive teaching of Christian Science.
"If we believe the New Testament we believe that men were once 'made whole' without medicine or doctor. If this was a fact in New Testament times, why may it not become a fact in the present day? If it is a fact, it is the most beneficent fact in history, and being such, it ought, if possible, to be recalled and re-established.
