The State

When John the Baptist sent messengers to Jesus asking if he was the Messiah, Jesus replied: "Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. And blessed is he whosoever shall not be offended in me." Such is the answer that Christian Science makes to twentieth-century inquirers, and the sense of tolerance which you have recently said is "the greatest characteristic of this century," is the mental attitude to which Christian Science presents its credentials.

The belief in an evil power, with its consequences of sin, disease, and suffering, is the problem over which the thoughtful of all ages have toiled in a fruitless effort to solve; until Mrs. Eddy, recognizing an absolutely good God as the Principle of Jesus' life and works, proved its truth and gave the rule in the text-book of Christian Science. The lifting of heavy burdens, the purification of character, prove the powerlessness of evil when God is understood. This work is not the result of hypnotic suggestion, but the proof through practical application of the spiritual law that God does indeed dwell among men, and that He can and does save to the uttermost; not in a future life, but here and now.
