The Healing Christ
It is natural to resist disease, and it is right to do so, for sickness is the work of the devil, not of God, as the Bible teaches; it is destructive and is a bold contradiction of the creator's will for man. Jesus called the devil a liar, and Christian Science repeats this designation and shows how to reverse the liar's lies with Truth, or the Christ. What better means of healing can be found than the power of Christ, which stops the action of evil mind that eventuates in sickness?
Spiritual healing is proof of the presence of Truth in human thought; it means that true theology is understood. Mary Baker Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 145, 146): "The theology of Christian Science includes healing the sick. Our Master's first article of faith propounded to his students was healing, and he proved his faith by his works."
Inability to heal spiritually shows the need for a fuller embodiment of the Christ-idea. Jesus claimed no power for himself that was not available to all. Prophets and patriarchs before him had demonstrated the Christ, and he knew that his followers to come would do the same. Through the Christ Science, we of this age can embody Truth and heal spiritually.
