THE SPOKEN OR WRITTEN WORD

What was it that gave the Apostles John and Peter such courage to face the angry rulers of the Jews after the glorious healing brought about at the gate Beautiful? It was the healing itself which enabled them to stand their ground fearlessly before the foes of Christianity. Nothing but their ability to prove the power of God could have impelled them to speak with such courage to their would-be persecutors.

As in the early days of Christianity, Christ-healing is again being proved through the teachings of Christian Science. Today, as was the case at the gate Beautiful, metaphysical healing may come through the spoken or written word, and now, as then, it is the spiritual assurance of the speaker or writer which gives his words, authority. However simple his utterances, one who has demonstrated what he speaks or writes of Christian Science will bring healing to those ready to accept it.
