The Rule of Christian Healing

"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases" (Psalms 103:2, 3). How often during the centuries have Christians repeated these words! Many have derived much consolation from contemplation of them. But have the majority believed, even while they have thanked God for His goodness, that He actually forgives sin and heals disease?

Christ Jesus, the master Christian, healed disease and sin and did many other wonderful works, and asked his followers to do likewise; but after the first few centuries of the Christian era, his command to heal the sick after his manner practically ceased to be obeyed. Material methods were resorted to, prayer to God many times being made in the hope that it would secure His blessing on the material remedies used. The words of the Psalm just quoted, while they refer to God as the healer of "all thy diseases," convey no hint that material remedies shall be used to aid Him.
