Testimonial Meeting at San Antonio, Tex.
AFTER the usual opening exercises the First Reader said in substance: "The enquiry frequently comes to us, that it Christian Science is the Christianity taught and followed by Jesus and the disciples, why is it so persecuted? To me this is the highest proof that it is the same. The disciples were persecuted and maligned; Jesus was despised and rejected of men, and in his healing and reformatory work he was stoned, and he asked the people 'for which of these works do ye stone me?' Think how he was persecuted for healing the impotent man. They sought to slay him, and when he restored the man to sight the Pharisees were offended at it, and excommunicated the man; and for raising Lazarus, the high priests and Pharisees took counsel together to put him to death.
"Stephen did great wonders and miracles for which they stoned him. Peter and John were brought before the Council for healing a lame man. They were imprisoned, but God released them. They rejoiced that they were counted worthy to suffer for His name. So when we as Christian Scientists meet with persecutions, we know it is because we are following the same Truth that Jesus taught and walking in the same strait and narrow way, and we are strengthened and encouraged and comforted through it all, for Jesus said, 'Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven [harmony]; and 'Be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be.' Paul says: 'All that will live Godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.' So, the only reason I can assign for mortal mind's antagonism to Truth, I give in the words of Jesus: it is 'because they have not known the Father, nor me.' "
