This is a practical age

Montrose, Arbroath, and Brechin (Scot.) Review

This is a practical age. People will not go to church unless they find themselves helped by going. Christian Science draws men by the same power which drew men to the Christianity of the first century. It proves the truth of the gospel teaching by producing the proofs of healing which the Saviour promised should be the sign of true faith. It explains the Bible in such a way that God ceases to seem "a God afar off," and becomes a living reality. The students of this Science become conscious of this great power of infinite Love and infinite wisdom, healing their diseases, lifting them out of their sins, guiding them, teaching them, leading them on. A Christian Science church is a place filled with the spirit of love, joy, gratitude, intelligence, confidence in good. Is it surprising that it attracts not only those who have hitherto found no comfort in religion, but also many of the best workers from the older churches?
