"Strong Reasons"

While much has been said concerning the financial question as related to Christian Science, I wish to give my individual testimony of benefits received in return for certain sums paid for literature, healing, and instruction. The spiritual and material cannot be weighed in the same balance, nor can material sacrifices, so-called, be counted against the gains God gives, yet it is sometimes well to consider these things.

My first expenditure was three dollars for a cloth copy of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker G. Eddy. In the first reading of this book, I was turned from a growing tendency towards atheism to an assured faith in God as demonstrable Principle, and to a conviction of the truth of Christian Science which has never been shaken; from drugs and discouragement, which were all that materia medica could offer, to a mighty hope of help and healing. My faith in prayer and the Bible, which had been deadened by doubt and dogma, was restored on a basis of spiritual understanding, and the life and miracles of Christ Jesus were illumined. Can the value of these things be weighed or measured?
