Silent Witnesses

The lament of a certain English author as she laid down her work upon this plane, was that her most beautiful ideas had not been the ones which found their way before the public. This woman was famed for her achievements, yet her most precious treasures of thought were unappreciated,—they failed to lighten the hearts and homes which she fondly hoped might grow brighter for her message.

Recently, after returning from a Wednesday evening testimony meeting, although many beautiful healings had been attested to, the thought of those other myriad healings of which the world has not heard, brought to mind the English author's experience. Christian Science has startled the age with its achievements, but could mortal mind either grasp or appreciate the silent wonders that are daily seen by the more spiritualized consciousness? Were these hidden treasures brought forth and given to an understanding people, who could measure the gain to humanity?

On page 255 if the Christian Science text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says: "Mortal man has made a covenant with his eyes to belittle Deity with human conceptions. In league with material sense, mortals take limited views of all things." Paul, endeavoring to lift mortal thought from its narrow and incredulous outlook, exclaimed, "Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead?" Were it not so nearly a tragedy, it would be amusing to watch mortal mind evade the giving of credit where credit is due, and its persistency in giving credit where no credit is due. Much rather does it suit material sense thus to "belittle Deity."
