In an interesting and appreciative account of a Christian Science lecture recently given in Portsmouth, a writer in Chat speaks of the phenomenal progress in the world of this religion, which "has proved itself to be a blessing and a joy to vast numbers of people for its healing and regenerating effects." And later in the same article he refers again to the results which are to be seen everywhere to-day through the spread of Christian Science, "not only by the healing of disease and suffering, but by the overcoming of sin in all its phases." These are indeed the benefits which Christian Science claims as a result of its teaching. The writer in Chat, however, is of the opinion that "if the ideals of Christian Science were dovetailed with medical skill, mankind might find practical benefit from its teachings."

The practical benefits which have come to countless thousands of men and women through the application of Christian Science are due to the endeavor humbly and faithfully to apply those same methods of healing which brought such glorious results to the sick and sinful nineteen centuries ago in Palestine. Jesus possessed no medical skill and knew naught of therapeutics, yet he healed all their sick and could ask with supreme assurance, "Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?" Those who have turned to Christian Science, often after medical skill of all kinds has been exhausted, quickly learn the truth of Mrs. Eddy's statement (Science and Health, p. 167), "Only through radical reliance on Truth can scientific healing power be realized."
