Agricultural Reporter

The saying that "constant dripping of water wears away a stone" is as applicable metaphysically as physically; hence I am again asking the favor of space in your paper to refute an oft-repeated and oft-corrected misstatement concerning Christian Science. Christian Science did not "originate" in the "United States of America," in the sense that your correspondent states in his recent letter to the Reporter. Nearly two thousand years ago the Science of Christianity was taught and practiced on the hill slopes around and on the shores of the Galilean Sea, by him "who spake as never man spake" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 76). Mary Baker Eddy did not claim to have originated the Science of being; she rediscovered it, and stated it in such a form as mankind could understand and use. She says in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 107), "In the year 1866, I discovered the Christ Science or divine laws of Life, Truth, and Love, and named my discovery Christian Science." The truth about God and man has existed eternally.

So, to-day, because of the discovery of Christian Science, mankind need never again use that hopeless expression "too good to be true;" for right here, in their midst, is a teaching which declares and proves that good is true, and that all of God's children are entitled to that good, if they will but use the laws of God.
