Yorkshire (Eng.) Post

Christian Scientists know that matter is a thing of thought wrongly conceived, and as such is under the control of right thinking, in the exact ratio of our spiritual understanding of this momentous fact. Jesus taught and demonstrated his understanding of this Science when he turned water into wine, walked on the waves, multiplied the loaves and fishes, healed the sick and raised the dead.

Christians should be alert to every fresh unfoldment of truth. Since Jesus did these things, and, moreover, declared that "he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father," his followers should not treat the Christian Science attitude lightly, since it is a matter of the gravest import that so momentous a truth should again be manifest in the demonstration of healing and reformation. Christian Science in the course of time must infallibly destroy all sin, sickness, and disease, and will finally vanquish that "last enemy to be overcome," otherwise the promises of the Bible are not worth the paper they are written upon.

"Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." That was Jesus' concept of matter.
