Natal (South Africa) Mercury
The article from the Transvaal Leader which appeared in a recent issue, entitled "Prayer and the Sick," may be regarded as a sign of the times, and is a welcome indication of the change which is taking place in the thoughts of mankind. Since, however, Christian Science is mentioned in connection with faith-healing in a way which might lead the uninformed to conclude that the two are alike, it is right to state that Christian Science is entirely different from what is generally understood as faith-healing.
To put it briefly, Christian Science stands for the spiritual understanding of an omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient God, which the psalmist expressed when he wrote as follows: "Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies."
It is the work of the Christian Scientist humbly to strive for that understanding of God; and he rejoices in the proofs, which Christian Science furnishes in an abundant manner, that the divine power is without limit.
