Healing incurable disease—with Christian Science

Marian English, C.S.B.

The transcribed text has been edited for clarity.

In her opening comments, Marian makes the point that the Scriptural promises that God will heal us aren’t just comforting religious theories; they are practical and provable. Mary Baker Eddy’s book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures states that “with God all things are possible” (p. 180) and Marian says, “From the standpoint that with God all things are possible, the term ‘incurable’ becomes something of a misnomer. ... Christian Science tells us that the cure has been discovered and it has been demonstrated with convincing proof.” During this lively chat, Marian responds to questions about how to cure cases of diabetes, cancer, migraine headaches, and other health concerns. She explains the role of a practitioner in healing and addresses confusion over whether or not Christian Science and medical treatment are compatible.
