Made Free Indeed

When I was a young member of the Freewill Baptist Church, questions would arise that to me seemed of vital importance. I asked older church members for an explanation. Some would tell me the Bible was never meant to be fully understood, others would say I must look to God and do the best I could. I was not satisfied with the answers I received. I wanted to understand God, and I could not accept a blind faith. Not being able to understand the Bible it did not give me much happiness, and I became so much afraid I would not do right that I magnified everything until it seemed I never could do right. One hope, one pleasure after another failed me, until I was a wreck in both mind and body.

Just at this time, while at the home of a friend in East Saginaw, I heard of Christian Science, and read the pamphlet "No and Yes" by Mary Baker Eddy. While I did not fully comprehend its meaning, I was convinced it was what I had been looking for all my life.
