While the canker of sin and the anguish of disease seem to afflict the human race so severely, there is ample room for every minister, physician, nurse, Christian Scientist, and lover of men to work, each with the light he has, in harmonious unity and loving kindness, for the elevation of mankind and their liberation from the hoary bondage of unholiness and ignorance.
Christian Science is the amplification and exemplification of the natural law which controls the universe and man.
We do not deny that healing the sick in Christian Science is a metaphysical process, for surely it is not a material practice.

The author of the Christian Science text-book takes no patients, does not consult on disease, nor read letters referring to these subjects.
The following rather pointed arraignment of "the great majority of nominal Christians" copied from a recent issue of The Universalist Leader, should have the effect of stimulating every Christian, "nominal" or otherwise, to a searching self-examination which will disclose his true status as a follower of Christ Jesus.
The marvelous changes which are taking place in religious thought to-day are scarcely more astonishing than is the apparent incapacity or indisposition of some to recognize their true explanation.

As I review the blessings that have been mine with even a partial understanding of this truth as given to us through the revelation of her who has been taught of God, I find their number is legion.
A year ago last March, Christian Science came to me and I supposed that in common with that of other churches this was a beautiful religion, but the healing by the prayer of understanding I could not then grasp or believe.
About four years ago, the light of Christian Science was shed upon my consciousness.

With deepest gratitude to God and to our dear Leader I submit this testimony.
About fifteen years ago I was healed through Christian Science of stomach and liver trouble which I had had from childhood.
I would like to tell of my healing through Christian Science.
Up to four years ago I suffered from a complication of diseases, such as stomach trouble of long standing, frequent severe headaches, kidney trouble, which the physicians pronounced Bright's disease, and finally inflammation of the bladder set in.
I have been very much helped by reading many of the testimonies in the Sentinel and Journal, and should like in return to help others by telling a little of what Christian Science has done for me.
