SESSION OF THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 26, 1899

THE GOSPEL OF HEALING.

BY DOCTOR J W. WINKLEY.

It is proposed to discuss here the question so often raised. Is this healing of our day by mental or spiritual means Christian? The scientific man may ask very naturally, Can it be considered scientifically? The inquiries are also often made Is it practical? Is it right morally? So the Christian Church may very properly ask, Does it belong to Christianity? Has it the sanction and authority of Christ? The scientific character of the healing can be left to the scientists. The question of the practicality and the beneficence of the healing may be known "by its fruits." To determine, however, whether or not the healing is Christian, one must decide what Jesus Chest himself taught --- what he, as its author, gave to the world as Christianity. Christians of every name and denomination will agree, of course, that his teaching, commands, and precepts; his practise, life, and example --- these together make up Christianity.
