"Know thyself"

TO those who have been studying Christian Science and endeavoring to live what it teaches, comes a desire to share with others the blessings they have received. Because of this wholesome and right desire Mrs. Eddy provided ample opportunities for its expression, one way being in the Wednesday evening meetings when testimonies of healing are given in Christian Science churches all around the globe. Mrs. Eddy also established The Christian Science Journal and Sentinel, including in them certain pages to be given wholly to the testimonies sent in from grateful students from all parts of the world, so that others could receive in this way the assurance of the healing truth. These testimonies do not bring up mental pictures of dreaded troubles, but they do express the fact that when the writer was suffering he found relief and healing through the application of Christian Science.

When the apostles left Jesus, to do he bade them, "to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick," they traveled from city to city, country to country, healing and teaching, and returned to give thanks, saying, "Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name." They did not have the medium of the press to assist them at that time, their work being to preach by word of mouth, and then to prove their words by demonstration in healing the sick. Today the Christian Science churches established in so many cities and towns throughout the world are spreading the same teaching, through the Bible and the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, and the testimonies heard in the Wednesday evening meetings bear witness to this healing truth, healings of all manner of diseases. The Christian Science publications were also designed to carry this same message and bear the same testimony of the proof of the ever availability of divine Love. Teaching and healing must always be side by side, because if the word of God is expressed anywhere in thought healing must necessarily follow.
