The Christian Science Benevolent Association

IF a Scriptural precedent were needed as justification for the sanatorium of The Christian Science Benevolent Association, it might be found in the tenth chapter of Luke, wherein is recorded the incident of one who had fallen among thieves "which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead." It is further stated that a Samaritan, as he journeyed, gave him such immediate assistance as he could, took him to an inn (a place of shelter), and gave instructions that he should be cared for, also agreeing to pay the innkeeper any debt that might be incurred and remain unpaid.

Whether one be robbed of his material possessions by thieves, or beaten and robbed of his sense of health and strength by thieving beliefs of disease, his physical condition calls for loving care and a supply of his temporal, human needs; and the "inn," as it is called, provides a place where such a guest can be received and properly cared for.
