Luke 4:14,16-21
14 #And Jesus returned in the power
of the Spirit into Galilee: and there
went out a fame of him through all
the region round about.
16 #And he came to Nazareth, where
he had been brought up: and, as his
custom was, he went into the
synagogue on the sabbath day, and
stood up for to read.
17 And there was delivered unto him
the book of the prophet Esaias. And
when he had opened the book, he found
the place where it was written,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon
me, because he hath anointed me to
preach the gospel to the poor; he
hath sent me to heal the
brokenhearted, to preach deliverance
to the captives, and recovering of
sight to the blind, to set at liberty
them that are bruised,
19 To preach the acceptable year of
the Lord.
20 And he closed the book, and he
gave it again to the minister, and
sat down. And the eyes of all them
that were in the synagogue were
fastened on him.
21 And he began to say unto them,
This day is this scripture fulfilled
in your ears.

342:21 Chapter 11: Some Objections Answered


Chapter 11: Some Objections Answered
Divine Science understood and acknowledged. 

Treating the sick 

The Way, the Truth, the Life - His word - 
Are here, and now 
Christ's silent healing, heaven heard, 
Crowns the pale brow. 

And forgive us our debts, 
as we forgive our debtors. 

Cardinal point 2 - Column 3 - Extended

(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"?

xi:9-21 Chapter PREFACE
The physical healing of Christian Science results now, as in
Jesus' time, from the operation of divine Principle, before which
sin and disease lose their reality in human consciousness and
disappear as naturally and as necessarily as darkness gives place
to light and sin to reformation. Now, as then, these mighty works
are not supernatural, but supremely natural. They are the sign of
Immanuel, or "God with us," - a divine influence ever present in
human consciousness and repeating itself, coming now as was
promised aforetime,

To preach deliverance to the captives [of sense],
And recovering of sight to the blind,
To set at liberty them that are bruised.
