“The physical healing of Christian Science”

Join us for church tonight, and hear the experiences of others who are striving to live a Christian life of healing.  (And share your own experience, if you’d like!)  We’ll all come together to pray, listen together to readings from our church’s pastor, and share!

In answer to a different “how” question – that is, *how does Christian Science heal?* – one particular quote has been coming to mind recently.

This is from Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.  It’s a little long, but I hope you’ll agree it’s worth it 🙂

Many imagine that the phenomena of physical healing in Christian Science present only a phase of the action of the human mind, which action in some unexplained way results in the cure of disease. On the contrary, Christian Science rationally explains that all other pathological methods are the fruits of human faith in matter, — faith in the workings, not of Spirit, but of the fleshly mind which must yield to Science.

The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in Jesus’ time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place to light and sin to reformation. Now, as then, these mighty works are not supernatural, but supremely natural. They are the sign of Immanuel, or “God with us,” — a divine influence ever present in human consciousness and repeating itself, coming now as was promised aforetime,

To preach deliverance to the captives [of sense],
And recovering of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty them that are bruised.

-Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health p. xi (read the quote in-context here)

Go peacefully today!

    I love your post!!!!! Thanks so much for all you are doing and for your members’ embrace of maintaining your mission on a “spiritual foundation of Christ-healing.” You are AWESOME!

    1. Val, though your comment was left here ages ago (all apologies for the much-delayed response), it was wonderful to read it! YOU are awesome! And you’d always be welcome to stop by and join us for a service if you’re in the neighborhood. Lots of love!
