It is undoubtedly true that a number of actors and actresses have become students of Christian Science, because they have been enabled by its teachings to rise above many of the difficulties which they have to encounter in their profession. Christian Science is not a sect; it is a method of thinking, a way by which men may journey out of sin and disease into the liberty of the sons of God. People familiar with their Bible will remember that "the way" was the name by which Christianity was first known. Christian Science, then, is a return to the methods of primitive Christianity.

Christian Science enlarges our conception of the nature of God by presenting Him as infinite intelligence, unchanging Love, unending Life. It emphasizes the Bible teaching that man was made in the image and likeness of God, and points out that nothing which is unlike God can form an essential part of His image—man. Thus it shows us that, since there is no jealousy in perfect Love, God, there can be no jealousy in His child; that, as "every good and perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights," we, His children, can have all the intelligence, originality, and strength we require, if we will but turn to God in humility and faith. In this way the Christian Science student is brought to see that there is no cause for jealousy, no need for it, no reality or power in it, since all power belongs to God. Thus he ceases to express jealousy or to fear it. By a similar process he is freed from nervousness, anxiety, and fear, and from all the other evil thoughts which assail him. He also finds that as his consciousness becomes purer, more compassionate, brave, and true, he manifests more health, and is less affected by heat, cold, change of diet; he finds that journeys by land and voyages over stormy seas have ceased to fatigue or upset him. "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee."
