"THE MANDATES OF JESUS."

In writing of the demand for healing as a part of the work of the Church. and of the efforts now being made to establish this healing, the editor of The Christian church work and Evangelist prophesies success for these efforts, and says, "The good Christian brothers who have had nothing but denunciation for Mrs. Eddy's work will look back in thankfulness for this at least, that through the lesson she taught, that Christianity and health should go together, the Church has been inspired to carry out both the mandates of Jesus, to heal the sick as well as preach the kingdom of God."

The most hopeful sign of the times is that the churches. and writers upon religious subjects are at last recognizing the indivisibility of our Master's gospel, and the need for returning to the Christianity of the early centuries, when both preaching and healing—words and works—were required of those who "named the name of Christ." In the early days of Christian Science its opponents were loud in their denunciation of the followers of Mrs. Eddy because, as was alleged, they "put themselves on an equality with Jesus" by claiming to heal the sick as he healed those who applied to him.
