It will soon be six years since I first heard of Christian Science
It will soon be six years since I first heard of Christian Science. At that time, having just recovered from a long and serious illness, I felt very ready and willing to accept this "new" teaching. The Principle was manifested to me in one happy experience after another, and I imagined at that time that my task was accomplished. I soon learned, however, that this was not the case, for all kinds of temptations came to prove me. Broken commands, sinful thoughts,—although not put into action,—hindered my progress. Selfishness, envy, and dissatisfaction still held me in bondage, so much so that I often got discouraged when I saw I had not yet mastered them; then Christian Science taught me that without the actual repentance there is no atonement with God. About a year ago I found out that my knowledge of Christian Science had been simply "patchwork," and that I had much work to do before becoming a real Christian Scientist. Later I felt a great change come over me. My thoughts were freer and purer, and through a deep and earnest study of the Bible, our text-book, the Lesson-Sermons, and other Christian Science literature, the darkness was dispelled by discernment of the truth that makes us free. Besides this I have to express my gratitude for several financial benefits. I am deeply grateful to God, and to Mrs. Eddy for all the good that has come to me through Christian Science.
