A Christian Science Testimony

Concord Evening Monitor

At the Wednesday evening meeting held in Christian Science Hall, the Rev. C. D. Reynolds of Lancaster, N. H., briefly gave his reasons for resigning his pulpit and declaring himself a Christian Scientist.

"My coming into Christian Science," said Mr. Reynolds, seems in a measure accidental, if there is such a thing as accident. A lady attending my church, who was a great sufferer and invalid, was induced to go away to Portland to a Christian Science healer for treatment. In about three weeks she returned and some time thereafter I called upon her. Her changed condition was evident. She told me that she was able to work and was really on the safe road to the best of health. I rejoiced with her and told her so. I wanted it to be true, but was sceptical, for it seemed too good to be true.

"I had just read a sermon against Christian Science by one of our prominent clergymen. The preacher seemed to me to be unnecessarily, if not unjustly, harsh, and I now determined to look into the subject for myself and preach a sermon on Christian Science, not to condemn, but to get, if possible, at the very bottom of the subject, and expose, not Christian Scientists, but the fallacious principles upon which they base their work.
