Christian Science, the law of God, heals and makes whole

Christian Science, the law of God, heals and makes whole. This fact has been proven many times in my experience.

Looking back, I recall one of my first healings. As I stepped from a streetcar on my way to work, I sprained my ankle. I managed to hobble to the newspaper office where I worked as a reporter. At the first opportunity I phoned a Christian Science practitioner, who warmly assured me that in reality there are no accidents and nothing painful can ever happen to God's perfect child. When I hung up the receiver, I got up and walked without difficulty. The pain had left, and the swelling was going down.

What would be considered a more serious problem occurred later. For several weeks there were symptoms that something was wrong in my chest. I complied with the request of my employer, who felt that to protect others I should have an examination. A doctor at a large hospital had X rays taken, afterward showing me that they indicated I had tuberculosis. He advised me to quit work and go to a sanatorium in the nearby mountains. Instead, I sought help in prayer from a Christian Science practitioner, and in a few days the symptoms disappeared. Later, when I applied for enlistment in the Marine Corps and was asked about my medical record, I related the above experience. The doctor turned me over to a specialist, who found nothing wrong. There was no evidence of the disease.
