A startling statement from the pen of a critic in these columns is this: "The healing element of Christian Science is part of a heathen philosophy and has nothing in common with the Christian religion." The proposition is all the more remarkable in that its author sets forth no reason and adduces no evidence to substantiate it. As a matter of fact no small portion of the Scriptures is made up of promises and accounts of healing by spiritual means, and no small part of the ministry of Jesus was devoted to proving the power of the truths which taught, and which have since come to be known as Christianity, to cure all forms of disease. Discerning this, Mrs. Eddy has well said (Science and Health, p. 406), "The Bible contains the recipe for all healing."
The world has seemed content to regard the healing performed by Jesus as the working of miracles in violation of known law or in conformity with laws inscrutable to mankind generally. Yet Jesus made it clear enough that in curing the sick he was simply putting in operation the basic truths of Christianity and trying to inculcate them by means of object lessons. His apostles, and the early Christians generally, saw this and applied his teachings to the healing of disease for two or three centuries after their Master's departure.
Christian Science is nothing more than the revival in these days of the Christian healing practiced so successfully centuries ago. "It is not well to imagine," to quote from Mrs. Eddy (Science and Health, p. 494), "that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good."
