In a well-loved solo, sometimes sung in Christian Science services, the words, "Rejoice evermore," repeatedly occur. And to many a weary and heavy-laden heart they have brought peace and solace. When they are scientifically understood, their import for good is great.

We learn through Christian Science to deny the testimony of the false material senses, and to understand that this Science is based on the teachings of the great Master, Jesus the Christ, who said, as John tells us, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." When the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, Mary Baker Eddy, was the only Christian Scientist on earth, a woman standing by herself for her convictions, so greatly did she love God and man that she was able to withstand the ridicule and malicious misrepresentation of the world so completely that she could give the practical healing method of God's Word to the world, in direct opposition to the erroneous judgment of men. She, in truth, was judging righteous judgment when she denied the reality of sin and disease. And she greatly rejoiced with those who were thus brought from the bondage of ill health and sinful appetites. Well did she realize that the joyous knowing of God's omnipotence in the face of adversity would hasten the time of freedom for all.
