"Having done all, to stand"

As an argument against absolute reliance on Christian Science healing, sometimes cases are cited where a sufferer has turned to Truth without apparent benefit; and the question is raised if it would not be wiser in certain instances to utilize material remedies as an aid in effecting a cure.

If assailed by doubt or discouragement during what appears to be a protracted healing, it would be well for those afflicted to turn to the seventeenth chapter of Matthew, in which it is related that Jesus instantly healed a case of one afflicted with dementia which the apostles had signally failed to relieve. The Nazarene's treatment of the case is especially interesting. His students had failed to realize the truth concerning the man, but even so Jesus did not advise the sufferer to resort to drugs, diet, change of climate, or hygiene. He proceeded to heal him then and there, proving conclusively the infinite power of Love and demonstrating its universal availability. Jesus then rebuked his disciples for their lack of spiritual understanding, implying that a grain of spirituality was sufficient to have effected a cure.
