From the June 1892 issue of The Christian Science Journal

IS there anything in the Bible or Science and Health to justify the idea that healing is a lower thought in Science, which Scientists outgrow? Is there anything in the example of the Apostles or Jesus that warrants it? As to the example of Jesus, examining Robinson's Harmony of the Gospels, in which the events are chronologically arranged, we find that Jesus healed almost up to the last month of his ministry. This adverse thought may have been occasioned by the fact that healing is one of the first steps to take in demonstrating Christian Science; also by the fact that a smaller degree of spiritual realization suffices, at first, to heal than to teach; but it does not follow from this that the advanced Christian Scientist outgrows healing sickness, any more than the astronomer outgrows arithmetic.
