The Lectures

At a lecture on Christian Science by William R. Rathvon, the speaker was introduced by N. J. Judah, who said:—

Through countless ages, unnumbered millions of mankind, of all races, tongues, and standards, have sought the solution of the deific mystery and their own peculiar relation to it. To some of these people it has come in volume and phase of enlightenment acceptable to them; and these popular convictions stand today as the religions of the world. To many other millions of this waiting and yearning horde of humanity these interpretations are not wholly satisfying, and the mind of man is yet open and receptive to revelations which shall yield ampler and truer concepts and realizations, wherewith the peace "which passeth all understanding" shall fall to them, bring life and conscious into harmony with the Godhead, and seal their living faith to a deathless spirituality. The Christian era has furnished forth the most exalted and enduring of these messages, but even these have been so diversely construed and diffused that their vital essence has been almost eliminated, if not destroyed. The yearning for the readjustment of the Word yet fills and thrills every heart amenable to such appeal, and it is my honor and privilege tonight to make known to you a man with a message garnered at the very feet of the woman chosen to fathom, interpret, and utter the simplest, the most beautiful of these expositions, and known to the world as Christian Science.
