Instantaneous Healing

Instantaneous healing is the goal to which every earnest student of Christian Science longs to attain in his practice. That such healing is possible was proved by Christ Jesus centuries ago, and is again being proved in this age through instances that occur not infrequently in the work of Christian Science practitioners. The pathway to this high goal has been clearly pointed out in the Christian Science textbook; "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Witness, for example, her words in the chapter on Prayer (p. 16), "Only as we rise above all material sensuousness and sin, can we reach the heaven-born aspiration and spiritual consciousness, which is indicated in the Lord's Prayer and which instantaneously heals the sick."

Instantaneous healing is healing from which the element of time is eliminated. From the very nature of material theories, such healing would hardly be expected in medical practice. If it is necessary for a material remedy to find its way to a particular part of the body and there produce a chemical or physical change before healing can be realized, obviously, a certain amount of time must be required. And if time itself is a healing factor, or if a disease must, as the saying is, "run its course" before it can be checked, then instantaneous healing is impossible. Such material theories have been so long believed that time has come to be generally regarded by mankind as a prerequisite to healing.
