The Lectures

Addressing a large and apparently deeply interested audience, Prof. Hermann S. Hering delivered a lecture on Christian Science at the church edifice on Oakland avenue. J. L. Mothershead, Jr., in introducing the lecturer, said:—

The one word which meets with more response today than any other is peace. Long ago Isaiah prophesied the coming of the "Prince of Peace," and when he came to earth his advent was heralded by the God-given thought of "on earth peace, good will toward men." But when this "Prince of Peace" was fulfilling his mission he said: "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword." Jesus knew that men could never be at peace while they maintained a belief in material life. He knew that all men must lose the material belief of life before they could gain the spiritual reality, "for whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it." So Jesus brought the sword of spiritual understanding to cut away that deceptive belief of materiality.
