Scientific healing: the Christian's obligation

From the January 1992 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Originally printed in the December 1918 issue of The Christian Science Journal

The teachings of Christian Science uphold the highest standard for Christian character maintained by the Christian churches,—a standard which all agree has been determined by the words and works of Christ Jesus, the Way-shower. But Christian Science goes on even farther and shows that these selfsame words and works require of a Christian much more than the mere acceptance of this standard before all that the word "Christian" implies can possibly be fulfilled, for the master Christian placed upon every one that believes on his word the unavoidable obligation to "heal the sick" by the grace and power of God.
