It is quite interesting and pleasing to note that the Episcopal church is forming a society "for the purpose of restoring the gift of healing, as practiced in the early church, but allowed to die out in later years."
In explaining his basis of healing, a correspondent describes in your paper how it differs from Christian Science. He explains that a Christian Scientist says: "You are not sick, you only think you are." Now, the average reader gets an entirely erroneous impression from such a statement. It is quite true that a Christian Scientist might say: "You [meaning the real man] are not sick," when, from the diagnosis of the drug doctor, you are sick. Yet unless all agree on the meaning of the words one could talk indefinitely and still be misunderstood.
Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, clarifies this point in question in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health Key to the Scriptures" (p. 476): "Jesus beheld in Science the perfect man, who appeared to him where sinning mortal man appears to mortals. In this perfect man the Saviour saw God's own likeness, and this correct view of man healed the sick. Thus Jesus taught that the kingdom of God is intact, universal, and that man is pure and holy." Now the "you" as used in the expression "you are not sick," does not mean mortal, material man, but the real man, spiritual man made in the image and likeness of God, as described in the first chapter of Genesis, and again confirmed in the third chapter of I John, first three verses.
