[Original in German]

My son was just a few months...

My son was just a few months old when he became ill with a so-called nursing infants' skin condition. I sought help from various doctors, but with no success whatever, and the child continued to become sicker and weaker. The last doctor told me he could not help my child.

I was in complete despair and went home with the baby, crying. I implored God to send me anyone at all who could help me. Just then I thought of a woman whom I knew only by sight and who, I had been told, could heal the sick through religion.

I wrote this woman, a Christian Scientist, what must have been a very unhappy letter, for the very next afternoon she paid me a visit. I wanted to show her the child and unwrap the bandages, but she restrained me with the words, "I know that your child is well!" In simple words she explained that the little one was really a child of God and that God had created him in His image; therefore he could not be sick.
