Healing in Christian Science results today, as in our Lord's ministry, from the wholesome, uplifting, vivifying influence upon human minds and bodies of that divine Truth and Love which emanate alone from, and are inherent in, the Mind "which was also in Christ Jesus." He, it will be recalled, was frank to declare: "The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do ;" "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work," etc. Jesus once explained to his disciples their failure to heal the lunatic boy in the significant words, "This kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting." Repeatedly did our Lord ask, before he essayed effort at healing, "Have ye faith to believe?" Divine Mind is the Principle of Christian Science healing, and Christian Science is preeminently a religion. The healing of sickness is but secondary and inevitable in the face of the high standard of spiritual comprehension striven for.

It must be conceded that all so-called curative systems have their evidences of success, and the most far-fetched theories seem frequently to achieve results, but the world's redeemer, who came to teach "the way of salvation," healed the sick by the "word" of Truth, and on leaving the earth declared, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also," and unequivocally affirmed, "These signs shall follow them that believe; In my name . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." The Scriptures in another place declare, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Indeed there is every evidence that there is but one means of actual, effectual healing, and that is a knowledge of God, of infinite Truth.
