The Lectures

Charlottesville, Va. (Society).—The following prefatory remarks were made by Murray Boocock at a Christian Science lecture by Dr. Walton Hubbard:—

We are living in a world of thought. Even now wireless messages are flying over us in every direction. The thought-forces of the world are being mobilized. How important then to think clearly and rightly about God and the universe, and to align ourselves on the side of Truth! In this age, when world unrest seems to threaten even civilization itself; when the standards and values by which our ancestors lived for generations are being shaken; when the destruction of religion is going on in the Eastern Hemisphere and in the Western, a noted public speaker says, "Christianity is dead." But Christian Science comes to us with its compassionate appeal and affirms: God is infinite Love, "with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning;" Christianity lives; it is founded upon the rock, Christ Jesus; the Bible is true; its promises are being and will continue to be fulfilled: "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions." Paul said of the inscription, "To the unknown God," "Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you." Christian Science declares God even more clearly, and shows how to "acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace." Only this morning I thought of what aviators say, that when they are high in the air the mountains look as level as the plains. We can let our aspirations soar until exalted thoughts make the mountains of error and evil disappear. Christian Science demands purification of thought; and to reach its sublime heights men must live in obedience to its divine Principle, God, divine Love.
