The Lectures

Chicago, Ill. (Eighth Church).—The following introductory remarks by Ernest S. Stough were made at a Christian Science lecture by Peter V. Ross:—

Humanity in general is beset and harassed, more or less, by a deplorable sense of worry, fear, discord, and sickness, which makes the experience of very many discouraging and unhappy. Is this a necessary condition? Can it be replaced by a clear and abiding sense of harmony? Discord is not the natural or God-intended state of man, and is not brought about by, nor does it result from the action of any law of God. The Scriptures clearly indicate that it is sin and wrong thinking that separate us from good. The Psalmist says, "I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness." The correct understanding of God as infinite, as wholly good, as omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent, and of man's relation to Him, does destroy discord; and in its place unfolds harmony to consciousness. Mrs. Eddy says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (pp. 489, 510, 511): "Outside the material sense of things, all is harmony;" and, "Science reveals only one Mind, and this one shining by its own light and governing the universe, including man, in perfect harmony." Christian Science rejects the belief in any power apart from God. Many thousands of people, through a better understanding of Truth as unfolded by the teachings of Christian Science, are being lifted out of discord, discouragement, and sickness, and elevated to a daily experience of joyousness and health—so practical and applicable is the power of the right understanding of Truth to destroy error and bring harmony into one's experience.
