Christian Science in Business

Somerville (Mass.) Journal

I have found Christian Science a wonderful aid in solving the knotty problems of every-day experience, since it has helped me to set aside such annoyances as fear, anxiety, and indecision. Nevertheless Christian Science has not always enabled me to carry out the plans which my judgment has outlined. This has probably been in some cases due to the insufficiency of my trust in God, while in other cases it has doubtless been because the plan was not wise from the standpoint of supreme intelligence. I believe that in some instances my own prayers in behalf of the prevalence of the right course have defeated my own human judgment as to what ought to be accomplished.

One can depend upon God to help him only in a right course, and, therefore, the only intelligent prayer is that right shall prevail. Paul may plant and Apollos may water. but God alone can give the increase, and He will not give it if the planting and watering are not as they should be.

Christian Science is not based upon human will. It cannot be employed to aid un-Christian schemes or produce evil results. Any mental modus operandi that may be employed for selfish or wicked purposes must be the direct opposite of Christian Science, and its fancied power will be counteracted and destroyed through the operation of Christian Science.
