It is evident that Jesus knew from his experience with some of his disciples that the time would come when there would be divers sects and denominations spring up, and in order that future generations might be able to distinguish between those who believed (understood) and those who did not, he said that "these signs shall follow them that believe." The theology that Jesus taught healed sickness as well as sin, and the physical healing was to be a mark of discipleship. For upward of three hundred years after the crucifixion a man's Christianity was measured by his ability to heal sickness. The healing of sickness is not the whole of Christian Science, however, but from the amount of suffering and pain seen all around us it would seem that there was a savior needed for the body as well as for the soul. And it is being proved in numberless cases every day that God can heal the sick now just as well as He ever could; and without the use of a poisonous drug.

One of the reasons why we rely on Christian Science in case of sickness is that we get better results from it than we formerly did from medicine. Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." Science, according to Webster, is truth ascertained. Christian Science insists that we can and must know the truth about God before we can enjoy eternal life, for, as Jesus says, "this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God." From its very inception Christian Science has been misrepresented and ridiculed by both the pulpit and the press, and in spite of this it has grown with a rapidity that is phenomenal, and the only way to stop it is to give the world something better.
