Baltimore (Md.) Evening Herald

The editor of the Herald, in his courteous rejoinder to the writer's comments on some of his references to Christian Science, evidences his belief in the thought-power in the world. The Christian Scientist adds to this his understanding that all good thinking comes from God. The works of Jesus and his sayings are all that we know of him, and he impressed upon his followers that God did the works; of himself, he could do nothing. The word and works that he preached and promulgated have awakened the world. Jesus told his disciples that all who believed on him should do these works, meaning, certainly. that all who believed that God did the works could heal as he healed.

One of the dictionaries defines theology as "the science which treats of the relations of man to God." That is Christian Science. The understanding of this relationship of God and His child, and that divine power is all-power, dissolves the cancer, destroys the tuberculosis germ, frees the paralytic and the deaf, banishes pain and misery, and proves that man's inheritance is health, not disease. It is not a difficult thing to understand "not my will, but thine be done," If we are willing to hold our human will in obedience to the divine will, trusting implicitly in God, it is an easy matter to comprehend Christian Science; truth is always simple. All the difficulty lies in the overcoming of the erroneous beliefs and fears that we have learned by not walking with God.
