Seeking the Light

The general interest in the question as to the truth and efficacy of Christian Science, which is shown in the increased attendance at authorized lectures on this subject, is one of the encouraging signs of the times, because it proves that mankind as a whole is more definitely willing to think for itself in matters of health and religion than heretofore. This question must, however, be answered not by preaching, but in the same manner that Jesus answered the messengers of John who had been sent to inquire of him as to the validity of his claim to the Messiahship.

Jesus' answer was, "Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached." There was no haste on the part of the great Teacher to reply to the question so abruptly put to him, "Art thou he that should come?" He went quietly on with his mission to the sick and the needy—that was the important thing just then! He knew that the truth of his claims must stand or fall by his works rather than by his words, and in turning John's disciples to the unimpeachable evidence presented by the works of healing they had witnessed, he realized that he was establishing for all time the authenticity of his divine mission and his authority from the Father.
