A Religious Solution to Universal Health

José de Dios Mata

José de Dios Mata

José de Dios Mata, a practitioner and teacher of Christian Science healing, will deliver a free lecture, Divine Love: the Answer to Universal Health, at 2 p.m., March 25, at the Christian Science Society of Bonita Springs. He will explore the Biblical basis of knowing God as divine love, whose law Jesus taught and practiced in his healing ministry, and his emphasis on the relevance of Jesus’ command to “Love your neighbor as yourself,” and the worldwide healing impact this can have.

Mata further points to the work of Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science and author of the textbook Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures to understand and practice the laws of love by which Jesus healed, and for more people to have access to this discovery.

Mata also speaks internationally on the subject as a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship. He and his wife have residences in Badajoz, Spain, and Elsah, Illinois.

“We encourage everyone to come and learn how the power of God can impact worldwide healing,” says David Hall, president of the Bonita Springs Christian Science Society.

Location: 11551 E. Terry St. For more information, call 239-910-3673.
