The Lectures

Boston, U.S.A. (The Mother Church).—George Shaw Cook, lecturer; introduced by Bicknell Young, who said in part:—

It is generally acknowledged that we are living in the most interesting age of the world's history. Hundreds of questions which were formerly considered only theoretically, and which it was supposed might continue to be relegated to some uncertain future, are pressing upon attention and demanding immediate solution. Mankind are learning that they can no longer put off the day of reformation, for it is coincidental with the day of salvation, which, as Paul pointed out centuries ago, is always now. To-day, more than ever, the Christian religion is the hope of the human race. Its sublime ideals are more than ever recognized as having practical value, and especially by those men and nations which have for four years endured the greed and of war. Only Christianity can change the greed and selfishness of mankind and bring about that scientific state which Jesus defined when he declared that one should love God above all things and his neighbor as himself.

A mere theoretical view of Christianity, defined by creed and dogmas, has never tended to scientifically solve the problems of existence. In fact, until the discovery of Christian Science by Mary Baker Eddy, religion and science has always been supposed to be without relationship, if not inherently antagonistic. Christian Science has lifted the thought about Science to a nobler altitude and has invested religion with the long desired quality of certainty.
