Momentum of Conquest

The rapid extension of Christian Science in human thought should awaken an increased sense of responsibility on the part of every Christian Scientist. The world has begun to recognize what this modern renaissance of primitive Christianity stands for, and it is on the watch to see if its followers are consistently harmonizing theory and practise. We may be sure that if they are not, then the world will have little time for them or for Christian Science. We say, and rightly so too, that this scientific knowledge of Truth should not be judged by the merits or demerits of its exponents; but we know that very often it is, and therefore the great need for fidelity, and for keeping our loins girded and our lamps trimmed and burning. There are fundamental truths here which should ever be kept in remembrance, and certain dangers which should be specially guarded against. These may be focused in the thought that we are never to rest satisfied with our present condition. We may have made great progress, and have cause for rejoicing that the promises of God are being fulfilled in our experience; the appeal to divine Love in all circumstances may have become what it should be, a habit of life to us, so that we are thankful to testify that God never fails His children, for we have proved that

They who trust Him wholly,
Find Him wholly true.
