I am Tony Lobl. Hi!
In my capacity as District Manager of the Christian Science Committees on Publication I had an article published in “the UK’s largest black community newspaper” – The Voice – called “Neither Myth nor Miracle”. It was a comment on the common assumption that believing in non-medical healing through prayer is a matter of faith over reason – thus becoming unreasonable to people of reason and proof of their faith to many people…of various faiths.
I hope this blog will speak to the hearts (and address the concerns) of those who are convinced that blind faith isn’t a divine demand, yet who find faith to be an invaluable stepping stone on the journey to the kind of spiritual understanding which – as I have found, over the past 30 years – can help and heal. Those who believe in the kind of faith that puts its confidence in the healing power of a God that doesn’t require His/Her children to leave reason outside the door of their thoughts, but provides spiritual reasoning as another great stepping stone to practical healing.
I also hope this blog might helpfully hint at the merits of Christian Science to those who might not know or understand this systematic approach to prayer-based healing articulated by the ideas in Mary Baker Eddy’s Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures [emphasis added].
My experiences of healing over the past three decades have led me to choose to turn to God as a first resort again and again, and I have not been disappointed in doing so. Life is complex and health is a primary determinant of our quality of life. So choice in health care must remain paramount.
This blog shares my perspective on healing and medicine, particularly as they arise as topics in the news.
Thanks for dropping by!
