The Promised Comforter

Christian Science has come to this age to reestablish in a practical, demonstrable way the religion of Christ Jesus. After studying the gospels in the light of the understanding given in Christian Science, one is almost led to wonder why the healing voice of Truth was silent to men for so long. The words of the Master are plain and unmistakable, and the command to "heal the sick" seems no less imperative than the command to "preach the gospel to every creature;" but Christendom, in general, has here made a wide distinction.

Christian Science, in obedience to the example of the great Way-shower, includes in its ministry the healing of the sick as well as of the sinning; but now, as in the time of Jesus' earlier demonstrations, it does not place the physical healing first. These signs and wonders, now as then, are but the higher proofs along the way of the mission of divine Science to give to humanity a full salvation from sin, disease, and death. The physical healing is always cause for deep gratitude; but, according to Paul, the transformation of the body should be wrought through the renewing of the mind; and Christian Science teaches that the physical redemption, in order to approximate the Christ-example, must be accompanied by that spiritual sense which eventually leads "into all truth."
