Future disposi,t~on of the college ~" Three Questions Nevertheless it was at the bot- tom of the mountain that faith was most needed. The reader is invited to picture the story for himself. A crowd of bystanders . . . most of the incidents recorded in Jesus' life had this background of the gawk- ing crowd. The disciples, red-faced, hot and flustered, trying to do a miracle and falling flat. The boy and man who were the center of the crowd; the boy an epileptic- perhaps even then in a convulsion, and his distracted father, begging for help but getting none. Epilepsy is a disease of the ner- vous system which is always em- barassing and sometimes danger- ous. In those days (and in these too, without special medical help) attacks would come on without warning. The patient falls uncon- scious; if near water, he may drown, or if by a fireside, he may burn to death without help. Epi- leptics axe not crazy, indeed they are often brighter than "normal" people. But they cannot often hold well-paid jobs, and in superstitious communities no one will give them jobs at all. ,I OO0 Can Faith Cure Everything? Aside from all other questions of wh~t faith can do, take this one: Can faith cure everything? We know now (that is, doctors know) that f~ith goes a long way in the healing process of any disease, and may be a major force in some cures. It has been reliably esti- mated that more than half the pa- tients in American hospitals at any given time would be discharged at once, if their attitude were chang- ed; in other words more people are hospitalized for basically psycho- logical reasons th(~n for physical reasons. The physi~cal trouble is there, but it's theme ntal slant that causes the physical spill. But can faith cure everythinK? Can faith ward off ever y0fing ? If a smallpox epidemic were threatened, should a Christian refuse vaccination and rely only on his faith ? Most Chris- tians would Say No; all health de- partments would say No. And all Christians agree that some troubles are not curable by faith. You cannot pray a broken, torn-off arm back into existence. Destroyed brain cells never grow again, for saint or for sinner. The very church that believes most in miracles is the one most famous for its hos- pitals. Can Your Faitk Help Me1 Another question: Can one man's faith help another man? In this story it was the father's faith that helped his boy. Is this always the case ? Again yce have to say some- times yes, Soft, crimes no. Jesus himself performed ~ore than one cure, on the faith, ~ot of the sick persons but Of their families or friends. Christians should of course pray for their sick loved ones, pray for doctors and nurses and drug- gists too, without inquiring, "How much faith can this patient him- sel~ have?" Yet there are limits to 'this. Saving faith, the faith that is a turning fTom darkness to light, from evil to God, alwaya has to be one':s 0W~ Whet is Feith'g Power * The third question can bean- ~ered in yery f~W,word~. W~at the ~ecret of faith s power? It is right in the story. The disciples were powerless, for their trust was in themse!ve~. They hs~d forgotten to pray. Jesus connects faith with prayer. Faith alone is nQthing; it works, only if and because it lays hold o~ ,tl~ flower of t!~e mighty God. tho Divls/on of Cbr/sthtn ]~lU~tion, National Council of the Churebe~ of Cb~bt in rise U. K.
