The Saviour from all Ills

God's way of deliverance is surely the best at all times, and always a safe one. The Christian Scientists know that this divine way does not fail and is not obsolete. They actually know it; tangibly. physically know it in the same every-day, common-sense way that they know when the sun shines, or that it is dark. They know that it is an experience wherein they have met the same experience, and God has succored them with no help from man—and why not? Why not? God surely lives to-day, the same boundless Love which has delivered men in every age; which led the children of Israel out of bondage and sustained them in the wilderness; which gave back her son to the widow of Nain and cleansed the Syrian leper; which delivered the righteous from the flames, the flood, and wild beasts; which healed the sick multitudes of Judæa; fed the five thousand, and redeemed our Master from death and corruption. "For there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.—Greensburg (Pa.) Tribune.

On the essentials of religion, the religion of Jesus Christ, Christian Scientists are a unit with other professing Christians; that is they believe in one God, who is Life, Truth, and Love, and that they can only be saved through Christ, but in the practical application of the teaching of our Master there seems to be a wide difference. Christian Scientists not only believe the religion of Jesus Christ is to help us overcome sin, but believe it is to help us overcome sickness as well. All the Christian Science Churches dotting this and other lands stand as living monuments, an indisputable fact that the gospel of Christ when rightly understood was intended to heal the sick, and does heal the sick to-day, as was promised by the Master. Thus it includes all the good taught by other professing Christian, and adds the complete plan of salvation as Jesus practised and taught, to wit: Christian healing.
