A Business Man's Testimony

It is now almost two years since Christian Science was first brought to my notice as a curative agent. I embraced the opportunity of investigating its merits with little if any hope of getting relief. I had been the victim of an ailment for five years, despite all the efforts put forth by the best medical skill in our city, including a most perfect system of gradual starvation called "diet."

Had I thought for a single moment that in the operation of being healed I should, in any way, imperil the blind belief I had in my religion, I should undoubtedly have died a martyr to my own bigotry, but the healing of sickness revealed the light. I have the most kindly feelings for the old faith, and believe fully in the sincerity of the majority of its followers, but when Truth through Christian Science reveals what God, Life, and Truth really are, there is only one thing to be done; the doing of which means happiness and contentment and an uplifting indescribable.

I will not go into the details of any of the many demonstrations that have proved to me and my family the absoluteness of the power of Christian Science; suffice it to say that in my business affairs, in my home, and everywhere, it has never been found wanting. I have gone only a few steps of the way of this beautiful Science, but as I have taken each one it has brought to me such courage, such happiness, such a conviction of the Truth, that although I look ahead and see many steps yet to be taken, I am so confident of the added pleasure each one means that I look forward to the journeying with the greatest and deepest sense of perfect contentment.—
