I am not a Christian Scientist, but a reader of everything...


I am not a Christian Scientist, but a reader of everything that claims to be instructive, and some years ago I read Mrs. Eddy's book called "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." I do not know about the science and health, but as to the key to the Scriptures I wish to say that it is to me a key indeed. I had for many years given up Bible reading as to me not understandable which now appears clear and profitable reading. It appears to me that the orthodox world is in the same condition I was. This is evidenced by the acknowledged ignorance of Bible instruction through the formation of innumerable sects and creeds, together with the weekly Bible classes, and yet all acknowledge that they have hardly commenced to fathom its mysteries.

Mrs. Eddy has shown that the mysteries in the Bible are not in the Bible itself, but in the student; that a false concept of God lies at the bottom, and when one finds God and His kingdom, which is plainly within us, the door has been opened and all is clear. I wish to say that I have found this true. I now enjoy reading the Bible. What was to me bewildering now is clear, and I can say that I can think of Mrs. Eddy as one of the greatest benefactors to the world.
