The Great Physician

The Great Physician is God; and the whole world will yet come to know the fact, and acknowledge it. It was not Christian Science that first declared God to be the healer of disease and sin. In the Old Testament He is freely spoken of as such; and Christ Jesus not only understood Him to be the great healing power, but actually demonstrated his understanding of God by healing all manner of disease and sin among the people.

In the Psalms, to quote but a few references to God as the healer of the woes of mankind, it is written: "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions;" "He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds;" and God is also referred to therein as He "who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases." In Jeremiah the words occur, "I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord." And we cannot forget the command of Christ Jesus, the great Way-shower, to the twelve apostles whom he sent forth to carry forward the work he had started, recorded by Matthew: "And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils."
