The Lectures

Jacob S. Shield of Chicago, a member of the Christian Science board of lectureship, delivered a lecture Friday evening [May 21] under the auspices of The Mother Church, The First Church of Christ, Scientist, Boston, Mass., in the church edifice at Falmouth, Norway, and St. Paul streets. H. Cornell Wilson, first reader, introduced the lecturer. Mr. Wilson said:—

To Christian Science is allotted the task of reinstating primitive Christianity. In the light of the New Testament this means, if it means anything at all, that Christian Science shall reestablish spiritual healing. We see that Jesus left no room whatever for doubt as to the important part spiritual healing must have in saving humanity from sin and disease. Indeed, he taught and practised spiritual healing as an inseparable part of his mission. He instructed his disciples to "preach the gospel" and "heal the sick." He pointed directly to his own works of spiritual healing when John the Baptist inquired concerning his Messiahship, and used no other argument in reassuring John on this important point. The disciples of Jesus and Paul are reliably credited with healing everywhere.
