What Christian Science is Doing

No well-informed person. watching the signs of the times, can any longer afford to disregard the wonderful and beneficent results of Christian Science. The movement has long since successfully weathered the storms which in every age beset the initiation of a new idea, and is now firmly established as a religious and therapeutic fact in human experience.

In her Message of June, 1901, to The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass., Mrs. Eddy quoted the saying of Agassiz, that "Every great scientific truth goes through three stages. First, people say it conflicts with the Bible. Next, they say it has been discovered before. Lastly, they say they have always believed it." To this Mrs. Eddy adds, "Having passed through the first two stages. Christian Science must be approaching the last stage of the great naturalist's prophecy." Indeed, people are believed it," and this acknowledgment must be exceedingly gratifying to our Leader, who is laboring to bring the beneficent results of Christian Science within reach of mankind. It may be. however, that this acknowledgment is not always believed" in Christian Science may not understand the full meaning of their words, but the public interest in the results of Christian Science and in its teachings is clearly indicated by such statements. They form a welcome accompaniment to the growth of the Christian Science movement from small beginnings to its present proportions.

Christian Science has led many men and women, who were once embittered or indifferent, to search for God, and many have found Him. They have found Him to be a Father-Mother God, whom they can know, and in whom they begin to realize that they live, and move, and have their being. Instead of a man-made god with human attributes. inspiring fear, they have found a God who is They have also learned somewhat of the nature of man and the universe, and of evil as negation and nothingness. This advance in understanding has rescued many lives from morbid fear and sorrow, which too often culminate in despair, disease, and death. It has helped many to realize a new heaven and a new earth, wherein reign contentment, health, and peace.
