When the great apostle to the Gentiles confronted King Agrippa in the place of hearing in ancient Cæsarea, he summed up the incredulity of the human mind in regard to things spiritual in the trenchant question, "Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?" It is a curious illustration of the perversity of this mind that after forty years of contact with the teaching and practice of Christian Science, and despite the attestation of thousands of its beneficiaries that they have found God alone to be the healer of their diseases, it still insists that suggestion and not divine power is the agency by which this healing has been wrought.
That this mind has always sought to discredit anything tending to deprive it of its materialism and self-sufficiency, is evidenced throughout the Bible, culminating in the crucifixion of the greatest exponent of spirituality the world has ever known. The Scriptures are replete with illustrations of the effort of this mind to maintain its idols in the presence of a higher sense of things. The sorcerers and magicians who withstood Moses, the prophets of Baal who opposed Elijah, the Chaldeans who sought to destroy Daniel, were but the representatives of a condition of thought that is by no means absent from the world today, though it is known now under other guises and possibly more polite names. The entire experience of Christ Jesus and his immediate followers was marked by an ever recurring need of proving that, as Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 454), "the superiority of spiritual power over sensuous is the central point of Christian Science."
