Marion (Ind.) Chronicle
Under the caption, "Miracles and Medicine," is a quotation from a sermon which a minister refers to numerous places in the Bible which he claims limit healing to the apostolic age and record God as indorsing medicine, medical treatment, and physicians as the properly authorized channels for healing work. While direct mention is made of Christian Science, the attack is made upon spiritual healing, and the inference is that the Scriptures oppose the methods employed by Christian Science. I would like to correct any erroneous impression that this sermon might give. Taken as a whole, it seems to be a zealous effort to interpret, if not distort, the Scriptures to make them conform to preconceived ideas and prejudices, and to justify an inability to heal the sick through the teachings of so-called orthodox churches of to-day.
The claim is made that the healing of the sick in the time of Jesus, and during the apostolic age, was given as a sign to convince unbelievers, regardless of the fact that even while Jesus was doing his healing work he said no sign should be given to "an evil and adulterous generation." Evidently Jesus considered the healing of sickness the result of the truth he taught, and not a sign to convince doubters and unbelievers, and his teaching would indicate that the regenerative and healing work followed as a necessary consequence of the understanding of that truth both in his own work and that of his followers.
