Loma Linda Messages, Page 64

humanity may be reached with the glad tidings of healing through Christ. In these institutions the sick may be taught to commit their cases to the great Physician, who will cooperate with their earnest efforts to regain health, bringing to them healing of soul as well as healing of body.

Christ is no longer in this world in person, to go through our cities and towns and villages healing the sick.

The time spent in a study of these books might better be spent in gaining a knowledge of Him whom to know aright is life eternal.
