From the February 1983 issue of The Christian Science Journal

And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple; who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms. (Acts 3:2, 3) Acting out a misconception (fettered by womb-tomb theory) of birthright, with his sense of substance apparently locked in a to-beg-to-bed routine, limitation was the verdict— birthright: crippled capacity/aborted career substance: contorted limbs/chancy income.
