Mid-Sussex Times

In a recent issue of your paper there appeared an account of a sermon. "During the Great War," the clergyman said, "many people had prayed to a forgotten God in 1914. But when they found that the war dragged on they went after other things." Among these "other things" he mentions Christian Science, stating that "more societies of this faith were formed during the war than at any other period." Undoubtedly, praying to a "forgotten God" in 1914 accomplished a great deal for humanity. The fervent, earnest reaching out for help, comfort, and enlightenment does not return to the human consciousness void. Those who were led to Christian Science found therein a most wonderful answer to prayer, for God was revealed in a clearer light than had hitherto been perceived by them. Not "after other things," but towards a higher, more loving sense of Deity were those seekers led. Carrying heavy burdens, the wounds of loss and woe, they found at the threshold of Christian Science the God whom to approach unto brings peace and healing; whom to know aright destroys the beliefs of sin, disease, and death, dispelling the darkness of ignorance with all the ills it fosters. In the words of Christ Jesus, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," the keynote of liberty was found, ushering in the understanding and recognition of the God our Master proclaimed, the God who is infinite good, and of man as His image and likeness; by which understanding Jesus' mighty healing works were accomplished. The secret of those works is echoing down the ages, and the revelation of Christian Science has brought to light the ever operative divine laws of Life which the Saviour knew and demonstrated, thus bringing the Christ, the Comforter, into present experience, Mary Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, writes on page 98 of the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures": "Beyond the frail premises of human beliefs, above the loosening grasp of creeds, the demonstration of Christian Mind-healing stands a revealed and practical Science. It is imperious throughout all ages as Christ's revelation of Truth, of Life, and of Love, which remains inviolate for every man to understand and to practise."
