The Lectures

Mountain Lakes, New Jersey (First Church).—The following remarks were made by Eugene F. Lohr, when introducing Judge Samuel W. Greene, a Christian Science lecturer, to his audience:—

The supreme destiny of man is to know and to live to express God. An understanding of God as infinite divine Love, Mind, Spirit, enables us to demonstrate the supremacy of Spirit in healing all manner of discord. Is it too good to know that we have a God "who healeth all thy diseases," whose law of healing is operative to-day as it was nineteen centuries ago? We have been taught to believe that there is hope for the sinner if he will but turn to God. We have also been taught to look to material means for deliverance from sickness. In the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, we read (p. 143), "The sick are more deplorably lost than the sinning, if the sick cannot rely on God for help and the sinning can." But thousands to-day know that they can rely on God for deliverance from every ill.

To one who has been instantaneously healed in Christian Science, after going through months of suffering, with one sleepless night succeeding another and with the thought of death uppermost in consciousness, there can come nothing but the conviction that the healing power of the living Christ is still available. For this healing I am inexpressibly grateful.
