One can readily agree that any healing, so called, which is based on suggestion is far removed from the miracles of the New Testament; but such is not the healing of Christian Science. That healing is based on the teaching of Jesus of Nazareth, who "taught and demonstrated man's oneness with the Father," as Mrs. Eddy has written in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 18). It is the spiritual understanding of man's absolute unity with God, as His image and likeness, that heals the sick in Christian Science. To be "really healed" one must be "made whole," as our Master expressed it; and this includes the cleansing from sin as well as the healing of sickness, and can only result from divine power.

The Christian Science church was organized to "commemorate the word and works of our Master," and to "reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing" (Church Manual, p. 17); and it is because that Christian Science purpose is being so faithfully fulfilled that the growth of the church has been and continues to be so phenomenal. Men and women of many races are finding in Christian Science a practical religion, a philosophy of life that opens up endless possibilities of good for all alike who care to adopt and practice it, and a spiritual understanding of the omnipotence and omnipresence of God, which is "a very present help in trouble."
