Health care: can it really be bought?

In a time of increasing concern over health care, we can look to a higher source for true health.

Today in the United States, annual health-care costs are 14 percent of the Gross Domestic Product. The phrase "out of control" is often used to describe this soaring cost. Politicians offer reform plans to solve the problem, but there is disagreement as to which one would work best.

More than a century ago, Mary Baker Eddy, challenged by serious physical difficulties, pondered at length the question of health care. She knew that during his three-year ministry Christ Jesus performed countless spiritual healings and taught his followers to heal through spiritual means. He commanded them, "Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give" (Matt. 10:8). Mrs. Eddy yearned to understand the directives of Jesus, to follow his example, and to explain his healing method to others.
