About twenty years ago I first heard of Christian Science

About twenty years ago I first heard of Christian Science. At that time I was quite well physically and, therefore, did not listen with the thought of healing at all; but I was very much interested and full of questions, which were always answered to my full satisfaction. Soon, a difficulty of long standing came upon me—that of a bad stomach. The Bible had been read from childhood, but never had meant much to me. By this time the textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, had been read also, but only spasmodically, with no real searching for the kingdom of God, good.

Three of the very best physicians of the city of Cleveland had done all they could to help me, but all their efforts had failed. X-ray pictures showed what they called gastric ulcers of the worst type. The doctors now told my family to take me to the country and give me the best time possible, for I would be with them but five or six weeks longer. Then, and not until then, the Bible and our textbook were studied diligently, not in search of healing, but in search of God and His kingdom. Suddenly I read these words from Matthew: "For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." "The scientific statement of being," as found on page 468 of our textbook, was also studied.
