Being encouraged by the many proofs of divine Love...

Being encouraged by the many proofs of divine Love I have received, and strengthened by a firm trust in God, from whom emanates all good, all being, I give the following testimony. My desire is that through the reading of these lines a cup of water in Christ's name may be proffered to some suffering fellow-being.

Less than a year ago I first heard of Christian Science in consequence of a severe illness of my wife. I first read the pamphlet "Prayer and Confidence," and it immediately became clear to me that if one discerns the truth about God, good, according to the scientific statements of Christian Science, and adheres to it; that is, if one lets himself be governed by Spirit, the Scriptural promise that God "forgiveth all thine iniquities," and "healeth all thy diseases," is fulfilled. Through this reading wonderful promises had already been fulfilled for me, and I did not hesitate to take up the study of Science and Health. Although I was not in the least familiar with the English language, I entertained absolutely no doubt but that this book had to do with spiritual truth. From the abovementioned pamphlet I had gained confidence as never before in my life, and Science and Health was now to disclose to me the whole truth. I recognized that I could only demonstrate Christian Science by obeying and loving the truth, and that nothing is gained by criticism and disobedience. With these views I began the study of Science and Health.
