Johnstown (Pa.) Journal

In dealing its well-aimed blows at sin, Christian Science uncovers and destroys the cause of all disease. Upon investigation this is found to coincide entirely with the attitude which our Saviour maintained toward sin, disease, and death. On more than one occasion he pointed out the fact that indulgence in sin brings physical suffering. To the blind man he said, "Sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee." This clearly points out the fact that matter of itself has no intelligence wherewith to establish any code of physical laws, neither can the infringement of any such supposed laws bring suffering and sorrow to mankind, if God's law is rightly understood. The process through which mankind gains the true healing is entirely mental, and the recognition of this fact will open the way to the remedy of every human ill.

If drugs and other material remedies were instituted by God, then he who came to do the will of the Father would certainly have found much efficacy in them, and his intelligent handling of them would have constituted a rule or method whereby his followers throughout all time would have gained an accurate idea as to their use and application. Jesus said, "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly," and in showing his hearers how to gain life and to keep it, he healed without using material medicine of any kind. Absolute consecration to God brings out the understanding whereby the Christian can "heal the sick" and "cast out devils" in his name, and those who have learned this mighty truth have indeed found the "pearl of great price."
