"Truth Lover" challenges the apostolic nature of the healing work done by Christian Science, and I am glad to answer him. What he means exactly by "apostolic healing" is obscure; but if he means healing similar to that done by the apostles, then it may be said that Christian Science heals the sick and sinning by the same methods as those of Jesus and his immediate followers. At the end of the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, is a chapter entitled "Fruitage," narrating remarkable cases of healing, many of them instantaneous, brought about by the study of the Bible and the textbook. Moreover, testimonies of Christian Science healing are published every week. This healing certainly approximates that done by the apostles.

It is unreasonable, in the face of the evidence available and continually accumulating, to assert that Christian Science is not known "by its fruits," or that it does not reinstate the original healing method established by the master Christian, Christ Jesus.
