The Fiery Furnace

On page 151 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mary Baker Eddy writes: "God is a consuming fire. He separates the dross from the gold, purifies the human character, through the furnace of affliction. Those who bear fruit He purgeth, that they may bear more fruit."

This reference to the "furnace of affliction" calls to mind the story of the three Hebrews related in the third chapter of the book of Daniel, which exemplifies the truth of our Leader's statement, and reveals many helpful lessons for the student of Christian Science today.
