Healed by Christian Science

Christian Science was first presented to me about three years ago by a friend whose wife had been healed by it after all other means had failed, and who had himself experienced its power to save in more ways than one. While I was not disposed to deny the truth of his assertions in regard to what it had done for them, my first impression was that as I had passed the meridian of life and had tried so many experiments for the betterment of my condition, all of which had ended in failure, it could do nothing for me. Like a drowning man, however, I was ready to clutch at a straw, and I concluded to give Christian Science a fair trial.

The blessings that have followed this decision are greater than I can express in a short article like this. Life, to me, had been unsatisfactory and discordant from childhood. In my early boyhood I had become addicted to the use of tobacco and alcoholic stimulants, and was a slave to both of these habits before I reached manhood. For many years I had struggled vainly to rid myself of these habits, praying earnestly for deliverance and availing myself of various kinds of medical treatment, none of which gave permanent relief. When Christian Science came to my aid the cure was radical. Not only was the appetite for liquor and tobacco destroyed, but the underlying mental suggestion was destroyed also; so that for the first time in my life I knew that I was a free man.

Christian Science has also healed me of physical troubles, such as nervous dyspepsia and sleeplessness, and my general health has shown a constant and continuous improvement. It has also benefited me spiritually, and this is the greatest gain of all, giving me a clearer and higher knowledge of God and man and their mutual relationship. I now find both pleasure and profit in the study of the Bible in the light of the Christian Science text-book, which I never found before. It has also helped me greatly in my business and all other details of my daily life. In a word. Christian Science has benefited me spiritually, morally, physically, and financially; bringing health and harmony in place of disease and discord, thus demonstrating by signs following that God is an ever-present help, and that Christian Science is the Christ-Truth.
