Stubig's Weekly

The effort of a public speaker to besmirch the character of a good Christian woman and hold up to ridicule the church she founded, reminds one of the persecution of Jesus of Nazareth by the religious leaders in his day. The Master was indicted on several counts. They hurled vile epithets at him, accusing him of being a winebibber and a glutton. They accused him of doing his works through Beelzebub. They hounded him as a criminal, and finally succeeded in nailing him to the cross. What had Jesus done that the religious leaders were so enraged and wanted to kill him? Was it not because he came teaching a more spiritual doctrine, and proved his faith by his works? When the people would no longer listen to his words, Jesus pleaded with them to consider his works of healing.

Mrs. Eddy brought to this age a message of great spirituality, and has so taught the gospel of Christ Jesus that signs of healing the sick have followed, even as the Master promised. That day has passed for an intelligent man to refer to Christian Science as a sham religion, or to assert that Christian Science does not heal the sick. Hundreds of thousands of men and women in our country have been healed through Christian Science of almost all kinds of disease, and they include ministers, physicians, bankers, business men, judges, attorneys, and many in the common walk of life. This healing work is going on daily.

Not only does Christian Science heal disease, but it also heals sin. It is bringing surcease from sorrow; it is reforming the drunkard; it is leading men and women out of infidelity and atheism and giving them an intelligent, demonstrable understanding of God. Through Christian Science people are led to read and to love the Bible, and a greater desire is awakened to follow in the footsteps of Christ Jesus. The earnest seeker after truth need not go outside of his own city to find evidence of the good that Christian Science is doing in the world. The apostle James wrote, "Show me thy faith without thy works, and I will show thee my faith by my works."
