Argument of good works
Christian Science awakens the sinner, reclaims the
infidel, and raises from the couch of pain the helpless
invalid. It speaks to the dumb the words of
Truth, and they answer with rejoicing. It
causes the deaf to hear, the lame to walk, and the blind
to see. Who would be the first to disown the Christliness
of good works, when our Master says, "By their
fruits ye shall know them"?
If Christian Scientists were teaching or practising
pharmacy or obstetrics according to the common theories,
no denunciations would follow them, even if their
treatment resulted in the death of a patient. The people
are taught in such cases to say, Amen. Shall I then be
smitten for healing and for teaching Truth as the Principle
of healing, and for proving my word by my deed?
James said: "Show me thy faith without thy works, and
I will show thee my faith by my works."
