That one entertains prejudice may sufficiently explain a seeming inability to understand Mrs. Eddy's writings, for prejudice is as much a handicap to an understanding of Christian Science as it to the acquiring of knowledge of any other subject. To appreciate that Christian Science is readily understood we have only to recognize the fact that it responds satisfactorily to the usual test, that results furnish the evidence to prove whether or not a subject is apprehended. The vast army of those who have been healed through its ministrations is the evidence which at once disposes of the contention that Christian Science is difficult to understand.

A practical knowledge of any subject is obviously essential to obtain results. It is equally true that an understanding of the application of the Principle of Christian Science is necessary in order to heal the sick and reform the sinner in accord with its teachings. It will be remembered that Jesus said, "These signs shall follow them that believe," or understand; and also, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also." The healing works accomplished are the "signs" which Jesus said would prove that his teachings were understood.
