We are told by John that "God is love." Christian Scientists believe this; therefore they cannot believe that God, divine Love, sends affliction, woe, and suffering. Christian Scientists believe the words of their Master and Wayshower, Christ Jesus, when he said: "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." Then again, after his resurrection, when thought was as clear as sunlight, 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."

In the practice of these Biblical works, Christian Scientists are certainly making an honest effort to live close to the Christ. The sick are being healed, sinners reformed, homes beautified with the harmony of love, man's spiritual sonship as the image and likeness of God is being recognized, and the old pictures of an angry, Father replaced with the new-old gospel: "God is love."
