Spiritual Healing

The Christ has always been in the world to heal the sick. Throughout all ages the Christ, Truth, has done wonderful things for those desirous of and pursuing the way of good. The Science of spiritual healing, it is true, was for long unknown and unformulated; but, notwithstanding, spiritual law has always been operative to destroy the illusions of material sense when men have been receptive to spiritual truth. Thus the pslamist declares: "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;" and in Isaiah, after describing the nature of the "fast that I [the Lord] have chosen," we read: "Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily." The spiritual seers of old knew that the application of spiritual sense in the pursuance of good brought about the inevitable result of healing.

In the gospel narratives of the life of Christ Jesus there are recorded many wonderful healings of disease and sin. The Prophet of Nazareth illustrated what he taught by deeds. He healed the withered hand, restored sight to the blind, cured paralysis, deafness disappeared before his spiritual understanding, lepers were cleansed, and those of unsound mind had their reason restored to them. All of these spiritual healings are recorded in the New Testament. And it is significant that in no single instance did Jesus use matter in any form to aid the cures he brought about, neither did he suggest the use of anything of a material nature toward this end. He relied absolutely on the power of Truth to heal the sick, as is done in Christian Science to-day.
