It is interesting to note that a clergyman, in a sermon on "Divine Healing," admitted that membership in the so-called orthodox church has been lessened because many found that the Christian Science church was the only church "which expressed any interest in the physical welfare of the people." The twelfth chapter of Matthew records the healing of a man who had a withered hand. When Jesus found him in the synagogue, he did not ask him what church he belonged to, or if he was satisfied with his present religious belief. He simply said, "Stretch forth thine hand ... and it was restored whole, like as the other." Our Master set aside custom and, discerning the need, healed on the Sabbath day, which, according to common belief, was unlawful.

The individual who has turned to Christian Science for help and healing is learning that the hope of salvation is in knowing himself as the child of God, and that man is never for an instant separated from God. He has left the shadowy valley of doubt and fear,—belief in sin and death; has turned his thoughts to the mountain of faith and understanding; and is now surrounded by a crowd of happy men and women eager to extend to him a helping, friendly hand. There is no turning back to the old way of thinking; and in the language of the faithful disciple he may say, "Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life."
