Rhinelander (Wis.) Daily News
Associated Press dispatches bring the news of the attempt by the Protestant Episcopal Convention at its recent convention in Atlantic City to interest its members in the practical work of "healing the sick." Rev. Frank C. English, field secretary for the association, makes this statement: "We are charged with the responsibility of awakening and creating a Christian conscience for the healing of the sick." And why not? Did not Christ Jesus, almost two thousand years ago, lay the commandment upon his disciples that they go forth, and not only preach the gospel, but heal the sick? And how were they to perform this important feature of their work? Not by the use of drugs, not by the laying on of hands, but by the operation of that divine law laid down by the great first power by whom all things were made, and who pronounced all that He had made to be good.
Following the first great command, "Thou shalt have no other gods before me," came that other plain direction to cast out evil "in my name." Why are not those specific instructions as applicable to the present time as they were in the days of the great Healer on the shores of the Galilean sea? Considered from the standpoint of the [so-called] orthodox church the reverend speaker is doubtless correct, but he has evidently forgotten the work originated by Mary Baker Eddy something over half a century ago, and which has advanced until at the present time there are several thousand [Christian Science] churches and societies ... engaged in this broad work of healing the sick, in the manner taught by the Savior more than two thousand years ago. That they are not only preaching the gospel but healing the sick in great numbers is now a matter of common knowledge and accepted as fact throughout the civilized world.
