Christian Science Healing

In Christian Science, healing is regarded as an integral part of Christianity—healing, that is, by spiritual understanding. Christian Science acknowledges Christ Jesus as the Way-shower along every line of Christian endeavor; and its adherents therefore feel obligated to heal the sick and the sinning after the manner of the great Nazarene. Every member of the Christian Science church has experienced healing —probably many healings—through spiritual means alone; and this acts as an incentive urging them to carry the Science of spiritual healing to others.

Students of the Bible will admit that Jesus healed all manner of disease, even as Matthew admits when he records that "great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;" that healing was therefore an essential part of Jesus' great ministry; that his disciples,—those whom he taught,—acting up to his instructions, likewise went about preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God and healing the sick; and, furthermore, that the Master commanded all who acknowledged him as the Messiah to show by the fruits of their labors—healing the sick, among other things—that they understood his teaching. The work of Jesus had far more than a temporary significance: it was meant to exemplify to his own and to all future generations God's goodness and the constant availability of that goodness to meet the needs of men. Mrs. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 494), "It is not well to imagine that Jesus demonstrated the divine power to heal only for a select number or for a limited period of time, since to all mankind and in every hour, divine Love supplies all good."
