God is Good

Originally published in the 1917 pamphlet “God is Good”

UPON first hearing of Christian Science, one will very naturally inquire: What does it promise to do for me? Does it promise to heal me of disease and to save me from sin? Will it give surcease to my sorrow and lift from me the burden of care? Can it break for me the spell of poverty, limitation, and fear? Is it able to say to the seething waves of mortal tumult, "Be still"?

Those who have become acquainted with Christian Science in its application to human needs are able to assure the inquirer that it does all of this, and more. Unnumbered thousands are bearing grateful witness to the fact that they have felt the beneficent touch of Christian Science in their lives, and because of it they are being redeemed from the ills to which flesh is heir. Weekly in the Wednesday evening meetings of Christian Science churches testimony is being given to the healing and redemptive power of Christian Science. Month after month and year after year a never ending, uninterrupted stream of reliable evidence of the healing power of Truth is going out to the world through the Christian Science periodicals. In these and in other ways the suffering, the sinning, and the sorrowing are coming to know that there is "balm in Gilead."

Unmistakable and irrefutable proof is to be found on every hand of the power of spiritual truth to destroy human error. Any earnest seeker may with comparatively little effort learn that through Christian Science his fellow men have been thoroughly and permanently healed of chronic and acute disease by spiritual means without the use of material remedies. He will learn as the result of investigation that these cases of healing by scientific mental treatment include many diseases ordinarily considered incurable. He will find that those numbered among the beneficiaries of Christian Science have been healed not merely of so-called functional and nervous troubles, but in many instances of those considered organic. He will ascertain that frequently these cases have been pronounced organic and incurable by reputable physicians, but that notwithstanding such pronouncement they have been healed perfectly, and often quickly, by Christian Science treatment. He will find that sometimes physicians are quite willing to give Christian Science credit for these marvelous cures.
