In this chat, Christian Science practitioner and teacher Phil Davis thoughtfully discusses the difference between Christian Science prayer and faith healing. Phil draws on examples from his own life, as well as from his work as a Christian Science practitioner, to respond to a wide variety of questions on topics ranging from US healthcare reform and reliance on medical treatment to what the role of faith really is in healing. In bringing clarity to this issue, Phil emphasizes the importance of an individual’s right to make his or her own healthcare decisions, and cites the thousands of documented Christian Science healings, including his own, as evidence of the efficacy of Christian Science prayer.
