Christian Science Testimony

Saturday Tribune

At the regular weekly meeting of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, held in the Auditorium annex on Wednesday evening, many testimonials were given by persons in the congregation, which, as one reflects upon them, tend to induce a conviction that the application of the fundamental principles upon which the movement is founded, are accomplishing a great deal of physical as well as spiritual good. Consideration of these free, open-hearted, unsolicited statements, is, at this particular time, of great interest, for it is an apparent fact that the doctrine of Christian Science is claiming new followers every day.

At the opening of the services Mr. William Bradford Dickson gave a clear explanation of the relation of Christian Science and Christian Scientists to the Holy Scriptures. Mr. Dickson stated that the Holy Bible was considered by Scientists as the supreme book of books, the voice of infinite Wisdom; and that all the works and teachings of Christian Science were based upon it; that the Bible was judge, law-giver, and physician, supplying the remedy for all moral, mental, and physical ills; that Christian Scientists gave daily and devout study to this book and practised its teachings in the home and in business relations; that "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the text-book of all Christian Scientists, gave the spiritual understanding of the Holy Scriptures, and that the reading of Science and Health had healed him of several physical diseases which had baffled the skill of eminent physicians and had made him understand and love the Bible as never before. The gist of the testimonials was as given below.

One young lady, who from infancy had been afflicted with a weakness of the eyes, became interested in Christian Science and decided to read the book Science and Health. She executed her purpose, and by applying the principles taught, her sight was restored.
