From the December 1893 issue of The Christian Science Journal

THERE is one question the nations of the world will all agree on. We desire that our sick be healed. The next important question to consider is, How shall they be healed? The author of Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures, our textbook, has given a simple solution of it. She shows how to take God's Word and apply it in overcoming sickness as well as sin. Having experienced the healing power of the one Mind, she has been enabled to explain to humanity what this great Love will do for them. In doing this, the inspiration of Truth as expressed in God's word, has been her only guide.

Jesus was governed by this one Mind. So far as mortals are governed by this Mind they are enabled to express their true Being with the Father. The command "Heal the sick" was as imperative as "Preach the Gospel," for it is good tidings to all mankind. His followers nineteen hundred years ago, proved the Principle he taught to be practical. Should not those who profess to follow him now be able to give the same proof?

America is called a land of Bibles, and because of this, it should be known as a land of robust, healthy, happy people, for this Book is a sure guide to the destruction of every fear, every sorrow, every sickness, every sin. To be healed through the understanding of God's Word, or Christian Science, we must search the Scriptures for what we want.
