Signs of the Times

The Reverend A. L. Fahnstrom in The Galva News Galva, Illinois

Referred to as—"The Good Book," " The Word of God," "The Holy Scriptures," and "A Best Seller,"...the [Bible] is well named, for it contains a most important message of love and hope to those who will take the time to study its contents....

[One] outstanding truth in the Bible, and little practiced today, is the healing of those who were sick. James, a very practical and down-to-earth man, admonishes us in his writings concerning many things. In the 5th chapter and 14th and 15th verses he admonishes us to pray for the sick, saying as follows: "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him."
