Christian Science

It is the sweetest theme ever spoken. I would not exchange my understanding of it for any earthly consideration. I have tried it for almost five years, after everything else had failed, and I can recommend it. If you are sick or in discord or disorder of any kind whatsoever, come to Christian Science. If you will try it faithfully and honestly you will find that " 'Tis Onward Christian Soldier." There is no riks in trying it, you will not be filled with drugs or medicine, or covered with blistering plasters or withering caustics. You will not be told that desperate cases require desperate remedies, but you will be told that God is good, that He is everywhere, able and willing to heal.

There are multitudes of good, sober, honest Christian Scientists ready to testify to this great healing and saving power. Come and listen to these witnesses, come and get this understanding, and then you will love everybody. You will know that your Redeemer liveth, and realize what that means. You will have your remedy at hand. The medicine of Christian Science is peace, divine Love, divine Mind. You will understand how it is that the Christian Scientists are good, healthy, and happy people. We are aware that there are a large number of people (I used to be one of them) who seem to object and feel irritated at the frequent and friendly manner with which we speak of our Leader. Let me say to all who feel that way, in all sincerity, that when you have been led from darkness to the sunshine of Christian Science, when you have been raised from a couch of pain, reclaimed, redeemed, and largely relieved from physical suffering, when, like many, very many, Christian Scientists, you have been led away from an untimely grave by the hand of Christian Science and made to rejoice, then you will understand our attitude toward her. Oh! I wish Christian Science could be brought to your immediate understanding; there is a joy and gladness, a lingering sweetness about it that can never be explained, it must be experienced to be understood. "Taste and see that God is good." He will forgive you again and again. He "forgiveth all thine iniquities and healeth all thy diseases."
