Healed by Reading Science and Health

I am reminded of a bit of early history of Methodism. In the "Illustrated History of Methodism" by the Rev. W. H. Daniel, A.M., pages 172 and 215 we read, "the Methodists were stoned in the streets. In newspapers and pamphlets of all kinds, they were painted as unheard of monsters, impostors, and seducers. . . . One Edward Greenfield, a tinner of Cornwall, Eng., was arrested, John Wesley presented him to the court demanding of what offence he was guilty: 'Why, sir, he says his sins are forgiven, was the reply of the magistrate. 'But for a magistrate and a clergyman to cast this man into prison for such an offence, is bigotry and tyranny,' " declared John Wesley.

Now that Christian Science methods are healing the sick they, too, are being persecuted; history is repeating itself. One thing I am convinced of, that Mrs. Daniel F. Beatty used to wear glasses, had violent sick headaches and chronic indigestion; over one year ago she bought a copy of Mrs. Eddy's book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and was healed by reading the same, and has been well ever since, is now in perfect health, and has no further use for her glasses. Seeing the wonderful results of Christian Science in one's own home, God's love to man is convincing. "And He sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick." This passage of Scripture has been fulfilled in our home. "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name."
