Before taking up the study of Christian Science, I thought I was all any one could expect me to be, and was very well satisfied with my goodness, which I considered equal to that of any of my neighbors. I found out very soon, however, after taking up the study of Christian Science that I had more faults than I could enumerate, although they had been heretofore unseen. As they came into view, I was almost overcome by the sense of their odiousness. Through faith and a close study of the Bible and of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, however, I gradually emerged from outer darkness into the knowledge that all presence and power belongs to God. I, therefore, have been healed mentally, physically, and morally. Envy, jealousy, and revenge, the habit of condemning others, along with the tobacco habit and the belief of lack, have disappeared. I was healed of a severe attack of influenza in one treatment, without any return or after effects of this discordant condition. I have also had wonderful protection from accidents.

For all of these blessings I am grateful; but I am far more grateful for the spiritual awakening gained through a close and careful study of Mrs. Eddy's works, for membership in The Mother Church, also in a branch church, and for class instruction, which has revealed to me more clearly the Science of being.—Franklin T. Gump, Louisville, Ky.
