Worthing Gazette

I noticed in the address recently given in the Congregational church, Worthing, that the clergyman spoke of Christian Science as one of the movements which thrive on only one aspect of the gospel. I presume he referred to the physical healing in Christian Science. It is true that through Christian Science this lost element of true Christianity has been restored, but we are reminded by Mrs. Eddy in our textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 150), that "the mission of Christian Science now, as in the time of its earlier demonstration, is not primarily one of physical healing. Now, as then, signs and wonders are wrought in the metaphysical healing of physical disease; but these signs are only to demonstrate its divine origin, — to attest the reality of the higher mission of the Christ-power to take away the sins of the world."

Christian Science is a living force in the world, preaching the gospel of good will to men, through its international daily newspaper, The Christian Science Monitor. This paper, circulating throughout the world, is accomplishing its object "to injure no man, but to bless all mankind" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 353), by giving the right perspective of world events, helping nations to understand each other through emphasizing what is good and helpful in every country. World problems and individual troubles can be solved through the study and application of Christian Science which, when understood, is logical and demonstrable. Through its numerous and wide activities it is endeavoring to obey the commands of Christ Jesus to "preach the gospel to every creature," "heal the sick."
