The Lectures

Chicago, Ill. (Fourth Church).—Mr. W. E. Howard, introducing a Christian Science lecturer, spoke as follows:—

The United States has been called the "melting pot" of the world, and Christian Science may be considered "the refiner's fire" of the world's religious beliefs. This does not mean, however, that Christian Science is an amalgamation of unnumbered religious opinions and dogmas. Christian Science is God's law, the divine Comforter, the "Spirit of truth," and when erroneous religious beliefs come in contact with the truth they disappear into their native nothingness. Peoples of various creeds and divergent religious views have taken up the study of Christian Science, only to find out, as Mrs. Eddy so tersely states on page 28 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" that "in conscience, we cannot hold to beliefs outgrown; and by understanding more of the divine Principle of the deathless Christ, we are enabled to heal the sick and to triumph over sin." This is evidently what James meant when he asked, "What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him?"

The only way humanity can be saved from sin, sickness, and death is to understand God, who is Life, Truth, and Love; and the proof of this understanding is demonstration.
