Health: Its Nature, Preservation, and Recovery

What a glorious thing is health; how greatly to be desired! Many yearn to possess this treasure. On all sides may be seen the continuous struggle of rich and poor, young and old, to obtain in it freedom from the bondage of sin, disease, and death. In the quest for it, humanity is carried to all parts of the globe. And yet, were one to accept the daily testimony pertaining to disease, one would be tempted to believe that every effort to satisfy this wholly right desire, and to escape the toils of pain and sickness, is largely in vain. In response to the generally accepted salutation, "How do you do?" there is apt to follow a recital of those very ills of the flesh from which material desires to be free, but which material means and methods have failed to heal. "Is there no balm in Gilead?" Must one ever seek in vain? Is health but a temporal, fleeting thing?

To the last two questions Christian Science offers an inevitable denial in its fulfillment of the Scripture, "Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth." Glorious in its promise, irrefutable in its proof of man's God-given dominion over every claim of disease, this Science brings to humanity the realization that health is a present possibility, within reach of all. The study of Christian Science unfolds the spiritual nature of perfect health, harmony, and shows how it is preserved or recovered. Here one may know and prove the truths of being, may demonstrate their reality.
