The Lectures

Coffeyville, Kans. (First Church).—The following remarks were made by Mr. C. L. Walton, when introducing a Christian Science lecturer:—

Throughout the whole of infinity, everything as it really exists is maintained and governed by the infallible, immutable law of God. The clear perception of this divine law and its all-inclusiveness enabled Jesus of Nazareth to annual every discordant condition with which he came in contact, whether its seeming existence was that of sin, disease, or death. The universal craving for this unseen truth has brought out many systems of philosophy and religion; but all these systems, while perhaps beneficent in their influence, have been found inadequate to everyday needs; for they do not offer the same positive pardon for sickness that they do for sin, nor enable us to lay hold of the salvation which the Scriptures say is for us now. Jesus made no distinction between sin and sickness, and healed both by one and the same process. Is it possible, then, to accept the teachings and works of Jesus in their entirety, and yet exclude the element of healing from Christianity? Surely not. And this fact is to-day being recognized, and is becoming the subject of much comment in the religious movement of the country. Here Christian Science reiterates the statement of the master Christian, who said, "Though ye believe not me, believe the works."

Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, in her book "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 138, 269), has said: "The supremacy of Spirit was the foundation on which Jesus built;" and: "I therefore plant myself unreservedly on the teachings of Jesus, of his apostles, of the prophets, and on the testimony of the Science of Mind. Other foundations there are none."
