The Christian Scientist, of all men, has learned the necessity of proving all things and holding "fast that which is good." His experience, as a general rule, has been very much like that of the woman who spent all her living upon physicians, "neither could be healed of any," and he has received the blessings of health only by studying and applying the great healing truths and promises of the Bible after having given material remedies a thorough test.

That God has given man the ability and opportunity to work out his own salvation cannot be disputed; and, furthermore, He demands that this should be done in the way of His appointing. If we are to take Jesus for our example, we find that nowhere did he use, or instruct his followers to use, any sort of medicine to heal the sick, and yet he said, "The works that I do shall he do also."
