The Lectures

William D. McCrackan, who lectured on Christian Science at the Pavilion Auditorium, was introduced by E. C. Thomas, general agent of the passenger department of the Pacific Electric Railway, who said in part:—

For many years, especially in my more youthful ones, it was a mystery to me why the promises of olden days were not effective now; why the power available to the disciples was not available now. Many times it has come to me that there should be a reason for this, but the theology of those days offered no reason or solution. In one place in the Scriptures we are told that "these signs shall follow them that believe," and many things are enumerated that could be accomplished. In Acts we read, "For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call." It strikes me that these promises are definite, and secular history tells us that they were operative for about three hundred years after the ascension.
