Although the sermon report with the caption "Faith Healer of Today Criticized," which was published in the Press and Enterprise recently, made no mention of Christian Science, and although Christian Science practitioners are more than faith healers, some of your readers may have thought mistakenly that statements in the article applied to Christian Scientists. Therefore, may I have the privilege of saying a few words about Christian healing as it is understood in Christian Science?

The central figure of the Bible, Christ Jesus, healed all types of moral and physical ailments through the law of God, without the use of drugs or other material means, and he said, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." The fact that Christian healing was accomplished also by Jesus' immediate disciples and by Paul, and was continued in the Christian church for about three hundred years after the ascension, shows that those who were close to our Master and had an intimate knowledge of his intentions saw that the destruction of physical and moral ills by spiritual means has a definite place in Christianity.
