If there ever was a man "born again" I am such a one

If there ever was a man "born again" I am such a one. It is with a profound sense of joy that I am impelled to tell of my experience in Christian Science, hoping that this testimony will encourage someone else to walk the narrow, but joyous, way of Truth.

Over three years ago I found myself completely enmeshed in a bog of materiality. The liquor habit had grown on me to such an extent that it imperiled my health, ruined my efficiency in my work, wrought havoc in my family, and brought about financial and moral bankruptcy. With no job and with but ten cents in my pocket, I was a desperate mortal—beset with fear, self-pity, and possessed of a befuddled mentality.

Some small voice deep within me seemed to be telling me that I should visit an old friend who had been remarkably helped by the study of Christian Science. I called on her, and was given kind and sympathetic attention, and finally was referred to a practitioner. I shall never forget the loving attitude expressed by that disciple of God. He talked calmly to me of my relationship to God and His infinite intelligence. He told me to get the Christian Science Quarterly and to read the Lesson-Sermons daily. From that moment on I have never had the desire for drink, and the smoking habit of over twenty years' standing was also broken immediately. How can I put into words my gratitude for such wonderful healings?
