The "Secret of Christian Science."

The Globe

One of the distinguishing features of Christian Science in the fact that therein are to be found no secrets or mysteries, as is evidenced by the breadth of its individual application to the needs of all classes, and its intelligent employment—to the exclusion of sickness and sin—by the children as well as by their fathers and mothers.

No fair-minded person could possibly affirm that those interested in Christian Science are happy only because they expect relief and health at some indefinite future time, since a large majority of the acknowledged happy people professing Christian Science are so by reason of a complete recovery from the ravages of disease and sin, in which bondage many had been held for years, and with no earthly prospect of relief. The fact of such healing being accompanied by moral and spiritual regeneration shows in a degree the nature of this Christ-cure.

Subscribing to the tenets of the Christian Science church and attending its meetings does not constitute freedom from all the ills and worriments which attend upon the lives of those living in this day and age, but it is proved that conscientious observance and application of the teachings of Christ Jesus, as understood in Christian Science through the study of its text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mrs. Eddy, does provide a successful means of overcoming these difficulties, and gives to mankind promise of an ultimate freedom from all that is unlike good; a realization of the truth of Jesus' words, "the kingdom of God is within you."
