The Lectures

Melbourne, Australia (First Church).—The following prefatory remarks were made by George W. Martin at a Christian Science lecture by Charles I. Ohrenstein:—

It is generally accepted that fear is the procurer of the majority of troubles that beset mankind, whether the troubles occur in the home or in the business world. Up to the discovery by Mary Baker Eddy of the truth regarding God and man, as revealed in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," fear was looked upon and accepted as part of man's very existence. True, in individual cases, fear had been overcome to a remarkable degree, but until the advent of this great teaching there was no clear, definite law, the diligent following of which would enable all mankind to overcome fear. To the mother in the home, Christian Science makes practical the words, "Fear not." To the business man believing in lack, inharmony, or any discord, Christian Science is a beacon guiding into liberty, freedom, and prosperity. Thus Christian Science is molding the thought of all to realize that an understanding of man's God-given dominion assures better, higher, and more harmonious results from every form of right activity.
