Health Realized

In all the world's history there has never been such an uncovering of error as during the period of the world war. The mental fermentation is still bringing impurities and errors to the surface and is exposing and destroying all the products of wrong thinking and wrong teaching. World conditions and events have set men to thinking and turning their thoughts Godward as never before. The vast majority of mankind are earnestly desiring and seeking a greater knowledge and clearer understanding of God. Christian Science is satisfying this desire. It is implanting in the hearts and minds of men a conviction of the truth of the Bible, and is intensifying their love for the Bible. It is destroying fear and the belief that suffering is the product of a divine decree. It is revealing God's protecting power and bringing health, happiness, and prosperity into the homes and lives of men. It is changing men's concept of God and of their fellow men and leading them to see and to think spiritually instead of materially.

The message of Christian Science has been carried throughout the civilized world, healing all manner of diseases, redeeming mankind from all sorts of sin, and reclaiming religion from false teaching, scholasticism, and formality. It convinces men that Christ is "the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever," the same in the year nineteen hundred and nineteen as in the first year of the Christian era. Through Christian Science, religion has become new; and through a study of the Scriptures and a more spiritual understanding of them which unfolds faith in God, the deaf again hear, the blind see, and the lame walk. Through Mrs. Eddy's teachings men are emerging from a long, black night of chaos and impenetrable darkness into the light of truth, which reveals a new heaven and a new earth, proving true Paul's words, "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."

The writer has always been an admirer of nature, especially of the sea and the mountains, but the cliffs and peaks of the Rocky Mountains, the valleys, now cultivated and dotted with herds of cattle, have always had for him a peculiar charm. In looking out over the fertile valleys and the fine pasture lands adjoining, and across hilltops and mountains to Pike's Peak, the grandest of them all, there was stretched before him a scene of indescribable beauty; and yet, amidst all this grandeur and beauty, he was unhappy, because he believed himself to be a hopeless invalid.
