Nothing real has ever been accomplished except when based upon Truth, and the real work of the world to-day, as in the past, is accomplished by men and women whose work witnesses to Truth. Because Abraham and Moses were faithful witnesses for Truth we have the Old Testament. Because Jesus was a faithful witness for Truth we have the gospel of the New Testament. Because our Leader was and is a faithful witness for Truth we have "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," and thousands healed in demonstration that the truth embodied in this book is of God.

The declarations of the truth which are given almost all over the world every Wednesday evening by Christian Scientists, are witnessing to the coming of the kingdom of heaven upon earth. Perhaps never before has error—evil—been uncovered and destroyed as is now being done in individual, civic, and national life. The ceaseless, silent affirmations of the truth and the denials of error, by the spiritually-minded as they daily go about their Father's business, are bringing about this amazing revolution in the individual and public life. If the faithful effort of our Leader can accomplish what it already has, what may not the thousands of her students and followers accomplish, as the result of her example and teaching and by the use of the same spiritual weapons?

I personally know that Christian Science is of God, for the declaration of the truth for me healed me instantaneously of a malady which no human skill ever had healed, and at a time when I believed that God had wilfully afflicted me; when I was tempted to curse Him and die. But a silent call for the healing and compassionate Christ was made and found response; early next morning a Christian Scientist was at my door, uninvited and but half welcome. A previous case of Christian Science healing in my family I had attributed to hypnotic suggestion.—and herein is added proof of the truth of our Leader's words when she says, "Divine Love cannot be deprived of its manifestation, or object" (Science and Health, p. 304). I was also healed at this time of a painful hernia and of tobacco and liquor habits, the latter the outgrowth of my malady, liquor being the only remedy advised. My ailment had been declared to be a serious stomach trouble, and incurable, by a skilled medical practitioner. I may say that for the greater part of my business life I have been a pharmacist and chemist, had taken medicine for many years, and had a fair knowledge of the so-called science and practice of medicine.
