Evening World

In the "Observer" column of a recent issue the following statement appeared: "I admit that Christian Science has done wonderful things things for people that were sick in their minds and that divine healing has brought relief to many who in reality had no bodily sickness, but I will never say the wonderful doctors of our age are superfluous."

The inference is that Christian Science does not heal bodily ills. We would refer anyone who has any doubt on this subject to the great number of persons who testify in Wednesday evening testimony meetings held in Christian Science churches all over the world; and also to the many testimonies of healing appearing in The Christian Science Journal and Christian Science Sentinel, these latter statements with regard to healing being carefully verified before they are published in these periodicals.

As for our attitude toward doctors, allow me to quote from page 151 of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science: "Great respect is due the motives and philanthropy of the higher class of physicians."
