Rome (Ga.) Tribune-Herald

Paul, that zealous and mighty apostle of our dear Lord, Christ Jesus, admonished the church in Corinth that their minds be not "corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ," and again, he reminds them that "truly the signs of an apostle were wrought among you in all patience, in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds." Jesus declared that these signs and wonders should accompany the belief in or understanding of him. He said, "And these signs shall follow them that believe; in my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover." May it not be that the creeds and dogmas of a scholastic theology have corrupted the minds of Christendom so that the proofs of discipleship demanded by primitive Christianity seem no longer possible, although there was never greater need of them?

Mrs. Eddy's great mission to humanity is to bring back to the world "the simplicity that is in Christ," with the signs and wonders, and the most prejudiced must admit that many proofs of true discipleship are being given by her faithful followers. Thought is uplifted and spiritualized, sin and disease are banished from the consciousness of many sick and sorrowing ones, as divine Science explains the hidden mysteries of the kingdom, glorious mysteries hidden to the corporeal senses, but clear and open to the spiritual vision. Jesus said to his followers: "It is given unto you to know the mysteries;" and those who follow his command to heal the sick as well as preach the gospel, rejoice in the illumination and the glorious unfoldings of Truth resultant from this obedience.
