Some First Fruits

When Christian Science was first presented to me, I had not attended church for nearly ten years, and never enjoyed reading my Bible. It seemed to me a mass of contradictions. I believed there was a God, but that He took no interest in our petty affairs, seemed evident. The word Christian was a synonym for hypocrite.

But in Christian Science I have found God, and know that He can and does help "all that call upon Him in Truth;" and that at last I have found Christians who are not hypocrites. The manifestation of love in our gathering, was a revelation to me.

Christian Science has proved the Bible consistent, and an endless mine of wealth. It enables me to find happiness in everything: the trees, birds, clouds, and all nature have the freshness and pleasure of childhood's enjoyment. It is indeed true, "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
