"Wilt thou be made whole?"

We all want to be healed—so are we ready for the new ways of thinking and acting that are part of healing?

Original in German

One of the instructive accounts reported in the Gospel of John is of Christ Jesus' healing of a man who had been sick for thirty-eight years. The man was lying beside the pool of Bethesda, hoping sometime to manage to step into the water at the right moment and be healed. Before healing the man, Jesus asked him what might seem a startling question: "Wilt thou be made whole?" Prior to my introduction to Christian Science, I could not understand why Jesus asked him this. How could Jesus doubt the man's desire to be healed?
