RADIO PROGRAM No. 235 - Accidents Are Contrary to God's Law

Speaker: We've called our program today "Accidents Are Contrary to God's Law," and I'd like to introduce our guest, Eldredge M. Murray, of Chicago, Illinois, who learned that the effects of accidents can be healed through complete reliance on God's law. Tell us your experience, please, Mr. Murray.

Mr. Murray: About twenty-five years ago, I was employed as manager of a privately owned diecasting plant in Chicago. One day in the course of my duties, I was walking through an area where diecasting casting machines were in operation. As I passed one of these machines, something about it failed to function properly, and a stream of hot, molten zinc shot out toward me. I was in my shirt sleeves; and the bulk of the metal struck me at the waist, and my hand and arm were covered. In fact, my whole side was literally encased from shoulder to foot, and my face was splattered with the hot metal.

For a moment I was stunned by the shock. When I recovered my composure, I found myself vigorously declaring aloud that this whole thing was contrary to God's law and had no power to harm me. I got back to my office and told those who had come to my aid to leave me alone there, and they did. I chose not to call the insurance doctor, but to rely entirely on the power of God for healing. I continued to pray and declare the truth, as we are taught in Christian Science, until the fear abated and the pain subsided, which was perhaps less than half an hour.
