Testimony of a Clergyman

That "Truth is ... stranger than fiction," is apparent when one reads the many beautiful testimonies in the Christian Science Sentinel and Journal. In no other periodicals, so far as I know, is there such an abundance of "good news," all testifying to the saving and healing power of divine Truth.

For centuries, wherever the Bible has been read, people have gleaned from its pages the blessed truths, "God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble," God "healeth all thy diseases;" "Ask, and ye shall receive;" and many similar passages, all pointing to the fact that God does care for His children; that He is not afar off, but ever-present; and that if we but realize the truth, life can mean all that our Creator intended it should mean. As we read the tear-stained pages of mortal history, we can readily see that the way has been hedged about with "thorns and briers" (mortal beliefs, material interpretations of Bible truths), and thus countless thousands have failed to make practical the numerous Scriptural promises; have failed to find the blessed panacea for all human ills and sorrows.
