1925. Representing the Principle of the Work in the Scientific Cooperation of Physicians and Clergymen in The Body and Soul Medical and Mental Clinic, New York City, Pointing to the Church's True Ministry of Healing. A Report for the Joint Commission on Christian Healing. An excerpt from Chapter One offers an interesting insight into the Church's position on healing: Concerning healing, the Church has been in a deplorable state of confusion, and harm rather than good has been the outcome. It is the duty of the Church, with her powerful influence, to stand always on the side of education and enlightenment, as against superstition and ignorance. By taking a sound, authoritative and courageous position with respect to healing, the Church today will find her greatest opportunity for leadership in the benefit of humanity, mentally, physically, socially and spiritually. Sane and wise leadership in this direction will reflect enduring honor on the Church and go far towards making real the kingdom of God on earth and in the hearts of men.
