Signs of the Times

[From the Kansas City Freemason, Kansas City, Missouri]

Because the problem of financial limitation appears to oppress a good many people, it is naturally most interesting to learn what religion has to offer as a means of alleviating this evil. The teachings of the master Christian bear directly on the subject, and yet many Christian people are largely in bondage to poverty and lack. "Take ... no thought for the morrow," Jesus stated; and he further declared that by seeking first the kingdom of heaven, all necessary things would be added. His words and his method of demonstrating supply have been little understood, although it is quite evident that all of his utterances have a profound meaning; and undoubtedly his demonstrations of power over material resistance resulted from a scientific knowledge of spiritual law.

The religion of Christian Science has drawn to it a multitude of earnest, thinking men and women who in general give evidence of having learned in large measure how to solve the problem of financial limitation. There can be no denying that they also present to the world an appearance of general well-being—an "outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace."
