The Pueblo (Col.) Chieftain
The minister of your city who recently attacked Christian Science, seems to feel aggrieved because his position on healing the sick by prayer has been questioned. It seems hardly credible that a minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ should, from his pulpit and in the public press, question and argue against spiritual healing. The four gospels are a record of healing by prayer; the ministry of Jesus is full of accounts of healing the sick; he sent forth his disciples on the same mission, and he made clear that all who believed (understood) should possess the same power. His momentous words to his followers — not merely his disciples — in the last chapter of Mark's gospel are: —
"And these signs shall follow them that believe ; In my name shall they cast out devils ; they shall speak with new tongues ; they shall take up serpents ; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them ; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
Jesus' disciples healed the sick and raised the dead; and the early Christians for three hundred years did likewise. In fact, spiritual healing has never been wholly lost since the time of Jesus, but it had become isolated, sporadic, infrequent, the manifestation of faint gleams of that wonderful spiritual light which so illumined early Christianity and gave it the wonderful power to convert the pagan world.
