In his address to the Johannesburg Diocesan Synod, the headmaster of St. John's College is quoted as having said: "Nearly every heresy comes from the neglect by Christian teachers of part, at least, of the truth. So with Christian Science, which, I take it, has spread partly because of the church's failure to stress the possibilities of spiritual healing."

When John the Baptist sent messengers to Christ Jesus to ask, "Art thou he that should come?" he said to the messengers, "Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: the blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them."

By "gospel" Christ Jesus meant the truth concerning the Messiah and the kingdom of God. He did not overwhelm the messengers with man-made dogmas; he simply demonstrated to them the allness and perfection of God and His creation.
