A speaker in your city, discussing Christian healing, observed that people are leaving the Protestant churches because these are leaving out the healing element. Then he proceeded to say, "Christian Science will never supply the people's need because it exaggerates the healing element, when it should be a minor issue." I should like to have space to state briefly what the Christian Science position is on this point.

Students of Christian Science believe that in doing the healing work they are following the injunction of the Master, who, in enumerating the "signs" that follow "them that believe," in the final chapter of Mark, said with emphasis, "They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." To Christian Scientists, sickness, like sin, is a form of inharmony. All inharmony yields to the same understanding, namely, the recognition that, since God is all-powerful, all-wise, and all-present, inharmony is not real.
