RADIO PROGRAM No. 28 - Should Religion Heal?—Part IV
[This is the last in a special group of four programs on the subject "Should Religion Heal?"]
HOST: There isn't any doubt any more that prayer can heal sickness. This is being more and more widely recognized today in many churches. For example, a well-known Methodist minister, Dr. Albert E. Day, wrote these words in his book, "An Autobiography of Prayer" [Harper and Row, Publishers, Incorporated]: "The fact is, indubitable cancers so declared by medical science; have been healed by spiritual means. The witness to that is so reliable that it cannot be challenged except by a skeptic whose stubbornness is not amenable to evidence, which would be accepted on any other matter."
But what is the power that makes such healings possible? Some people view them as "miracles" and hardly try to understand. Others say it's simply the power of faith. Still others try to explain it in terms of psychology. One writer says frankly, "Much so-called 'spiritual healing' operates on the mental level via suggestion."
