"To whom shall we go?"

In the sixth chapter of John's gospel we find it recorded that many of the disciples of Jesus "went back, and walked no more with him," and that when Jesus asked of the twelve, "Will ye also go away?" Simon Peter replied, "Lord, to whom shall we go?"

There are many pathways leading toward truth, even though there be but one truth, and one of the most beneficent teachings of Christian Science is that which rebukes arrogance and makes us mindful of the fact that the order of our own entrance into truth is not to be forced upon our brother. Truth can be reached by any one of three processes, —first, the inspirational, by which it is realized without the intervening footsteps; second, by daily experience, which brings us nearer and nearer to the goal; third, by the process of elimination, which through many years of hard experience finally reaches a conviction of the utter uselessness of material means of salvation. The last method might be considered of the lowest order, and yet when one has been brought from sickness to health through Christian Science, after having exhausted every remedy offered by the schools of medicine, this fact furnishes an additional safeguard when trials come and for the moment faith refuses to look upward.
