Have Miracles Ceased?

Daily Statesman

Christian Science is a subject concerning which we hear many conflicting statements. However, a visit to one of the weekly testimonial meetings will bring to light the fact that the believers have very substantial evidence to bring forth in support of their views. The service was opened by a song, after which Mr. Robert L. Ziller read a chapter from the Bible followed by a short selection from "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," the textbook of Christian Science, written by Mary Baker G. Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of this Science. Before proceeding with the meeting the speaker made the following remarks, "It is sometimes asked by those unfamiliar with the teachings of Christian Science whether we healing is through hypnotism. We are sometimes called a Godless and prayerless people, and it may not be out of place to remark that no statement that could be made about Christian Scientists would be from the truth. We truly believe in God, yea, we know that He is 'All-in-all.' We acknowledge no other way of salvation than that taught by our blessed Saviour, and it is only by meekly and prayerfully following in the pathway he marked out for us that we hope to overcome the ills that beset humanity. No mental suggestion, thought-transference, hypnotism, or spiritualism enter into the ministrations of Christian Science, I have no hesitation in saying that those who will speak to-night will agree with me in the statement that their healing of sickness as well as sin was brought about by fervent and effectual prayer in the deepest, truest, and most scientific sense of the word. The meeting is now in your hands."
