An Important Step

We have great pleasure in publishing the following extracts from the Nordiske Blade (Brooklyn, N. Y.). The step taken by the Rev. Mr. Simonsen is indeed an important one. That it has not been hastily taken is apparent; that it has been wisely taken there is no doubt. It is a step in advance. It is no discredit to his former religious belief and affilations to say this. As the result, not only of deep conviction but of actual proof, Mr. Simonsen has taken this step. When the Truth of the Bible has been proved to one, as the result of investigation and experience in Christian Science, in ways that were be for unknown, and that proof is of such a character as to place it beyond the possiblity of a question or a doubt, what is there left for one to do but accept it and govern his life accordingly? This was the experience of Mr. Simonsen, and this has been the experience of scores of other clergymen and thousands of laymen. We extend to our brother the right hand of fellowship and bid him God-speed in his new life—his new birth.

Following are the extracts referred to:—
