Healing by Argument

Christ Jesus' healing work was immediate, instantaneous. There is only one recorded instance where he required more than one effort to heal. A blind man, who came to him, at first saw "men as trees, walking," Mark 8:24; but with Jesus' second effort he saw clearly. Jesus' disciples, too, must have gained the inspiration needed for instantaneous healing, for after the Master's ascension every record of healing by the disciples is of this kind.

Mary Baker Eddy, who followed in the footsteps of the Master in her healing work, was able to cure patients in from one to three interviews. Two chapters in Historical Sketches by Clifford P. Smith quote eyewitness accounts of such healings, in most cases instantaneous. Brain fever, heart disease, crippling conditions, blindness, deafness, and dumbness were among the conditions she quickly and permanently healed. Similarly, every dedicated student of Christian Science keeps before him the high goal of quick healing. A closer conformity to the Christly state of consciousness is essential for this achievement.
