Nebraska's Own Magazine,

In establishing the Christian Science movement, Mrs. Eddy displayed remarkable ability and marvelous love for those for whom she pointed the way. Well she knew that the divine law is inviolable and must be obeyed. She saw that the merciful and just thing to do was to tell the truth about God and His law, which all mortals eventually must seek, accept, and obey.

Christ Jesus said, "It is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail." Because of following the straight and narrow way of divine revelation, Mrs. Eddy sometimes was charged with being humanly aggressive and even authocratic. Her gentle and loving manner, her wellknown love for God and man, and her singleness of purpose are so well portrayed in her writings and the known records of her works, as successfully to refute all such false assumptions.

Martin Luther said: "Here I stand. I can do no otherwise; so help me God!" It was spiritual vision and the mighty power of God, good, which made of Mrs. Eddy a valiant crusader in the cause of Christ. Her constant desire that the Christian Science movement should properly express healing through spiritual means as practiced by the Master, and her definite resolve to do all she could to prevent adulteration of this religion through any of the channels she established, sometimes seemed to those as yet unprepared for spiritual growth to be too precise and drastic, they not understanding that divine law and revelation cannot be modified to suit material desires. Mrs. Eddy provided for authorized literature and other activities, and for the manner in which all should be conducted, all of which have been proved to be very helpful and exceedingly satisfying to those hungering for righteousness and conscientiously relying on Christian Science for divine guidance. The use of Mrs. Eddy's name to identify her writings, as announced from the pulpits of all properly recognized Christian Science churches and societies and elsewhere, undoubtedly protects the investigating public from imposition through unauthorized sources.
