Testimony of a Business Man

When, three years ago, I was refused by an insurance company on account of Bright's disease, I did not at first credit the medical examiner. I did not understand that that which I most feared, had befallen me, so I consulted other physicians, one of them a specialist in this line.

Their verdict, upon making both chemical and microscopic examination, was that I had the much-dreaded disease. This was verified by my own examinations, for one of the medical gentlemen had shown me how to confirm my own doom. Only those who know the dull fear, the ever-impending dread of invalidism, and after that of the unknown beyond, can know what I was lifted out of at that time. Christian Science came to me, and I can safely say that from the time I read the first hundred pages of Science and Health, I knew that God's help was at hand. I had treatment and my disease was healed. The symptoms melted away like mist before the sun. A recent examination proved what I already knew, that the last vestige had disappeared.

In spite of my healing I did not at first fully grasp the import of Christian Science, and it was not until class instruction was had, that I realized the limitless possibility of this great system. It was then there was shown me the way, bright and clear, which leads to our oneness with the Father. The way becomes broader and more clearly defined, as we remove that rubbish of the ages,—the beliefs of mortal mankind,—for then we perceive that Christ, Truth, is the Way.
