Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to state that “through God we find healing”?

From the February 2015 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Q:  Why do we speak of God as doing the healing, when we are taught in Christian Science that we are already perfect and whole as God’s reflection? Why would God need to heal us? Wouldn’t it be more appropriate to state that “through God we find healing”?   A:  It is certainly correct to state that through our understanding of God, divine Truth, we acknowledge God as the healer. The Bible assures us that it is God who “healeth all thy diseases” ( Psalms 103:3 ) and “will restore health unto thee” ( Jeremiah 30:17 ).
