The Lectures

New York, N. Y. (Fifth Church).—John Randall Dunn, lecturer; introduced by Albert F. Gilmore, who said in part:—

It is nearly twenty centuries since Jesus the Christ proved by demonstration his understanding of what Truth is and its ability to achieve victory,—healing the sick, making the blind to see, regenerating the sinner, raising the dead, and overcoming what were supposed to be unvarying physical laws. In less than three centuries after the close of his brief earthly ministry, the light of spiritual understanding burned so low that its healing efficacy was lost, and the world passed into those well-named dark ages of fear and doubt and superstition. "Where there is no vision, the people perish," and this vision is spiritual perception, the understanding of what Truth is.

We should be deeply grateful that in our own time has appeared one whose mentality was so spiritual, whose vision was so clear, that she, too, was able to give a full and complete answer to this question. Mrs. Eddy has given to the world the great fact that God is Truth, and she has proved her understanding by her works—proof beyond the possibility of refutation. She has answered the question, "What is truth?" She has given to the world its most perfect therapeutic system, a religion that heals and saves through spiritual regeneration.
