The Holy Bible tells us that Job was sorely afflicted with boils. His healing, however, was not accomplished through material means. It is also recorded in the Bible that "when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever. And he touched her hand, and the fever left her: and she arose, and ministered unto them." Neither was this healing accomplished through material means. Christ Jesus said that those who understood his teachings would themselves be enabled to do the works which he did. He well knew that neither malaria, carbuncles, nor sin could withstand the healing, saving power of God's spiritual law when understandingly applied.

Christian Science denies the existence of a material so-called law, and affirms that God, Spirit, is the one and only cause or lawmaker, and that His spiritual law sustains, governs, and controls the universe, including man. It further teaches that the procuring causes of disease are fear, ignorance, or sin, which are themselves superinduced by a belief in a power apart from God. Christian Science denies sense-testimony regarding matter phenomena, just as Christ Jesus himself denied sense-testimony when raising from the dead Jairus' daughter, after they had "laughed him to scorn." When mankind does understand spiritual law there will be no occasion to delve into lifeless, nonintelligent matter to find a remedy to heal. An honest, prayerful study of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, in connection with the Bible, is enabling Christian Scientists to understand this healing, saving law. Proofs that Christian Science does heal all manner of diseases are so universally known and acknowledged that no well-informed person should claim to be ignorant of them.
