In talking on the subject of Christian Science with those who have not accepted it, we frequently refer to Jesus as the great Wayshower for all mankind, and cite the fact that he did not resort to material means in healing the sick. This statement is almost invariably met by a reference to the application of clay to the eyes of the blind man whom Jesus healed, as related in the ninth chapter of John's gospel. In the sixteenth verse of this chapter referred to we find this: "Therefore said some of the Pharisees, This man is not of God, because he keepeth not the sabbath day. Others said, How can a man that is a sinner do such miracles?" If those who were present and witnessed the healing had regarded the clay as a factor, this, to them, would have removed it from the realm of the miraculous, while the fact that they looked upon it as a miracle shows conclusively that they attached absolutely no significance to the application of clay to the man's eyes.
