Another Slave Set Free

I FEEL it my duty to thank God for the blessings He has bestowed upon me by restoring me to my home and family.

For fifteen years I had been a slave to liquor. At last, because of my wickedness, caused by drink, my wife and three children were obliged to leave me, and I was without a home. I did not have a place to lay my head, and could not see one ray of hope.

I had tried many times to overcome this terrible sin, but each time I failed. At last a thought came to me to see a friend and ask for assistance. This friend took me to a Christian Scientist. I told the Scientist I felt there was no hope, as I had gone on so long in sin; but she said there was always hope in Christian Science for any one who was honest and earnest. Then she told me that God loved me, and that I was His son, superior to sin and sickness; that I need not fear to assert my God-given power, and trust in divine Love to protect me.
