"Ye shall know the truth, and...

"Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." These were the words that I read on the wall of a Christian Science church when entering it for the first time. Little did I think how completely my entire outlook on life would change from that night onwards.

Life was just existence for me at that time. I had more or less separated myself from my family because I felt that I was not understood. My health was badly impaired. I had undergone, among other things, two major operations, the second of which was followed by pneumonia, leaving me subject to continual colds, and I had an incessant cough and a pain in my lung. As an outcome of a clot in the bloodstream I suffered periodically from swollen legs, and was sometimes quite unable to wear shoes. My business life was on a level with my health, and I was weighed down by debt. I filled in most of the day trying to keep my thoughts off myself.

Was it to be wondered at that when I read those words I opened wide the door to freedom? I read the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, at every opportunity. It certainly proved to be the "key" to the Scriptures, which was no longer merely historical data of the more spiritually-minded among the peoples of those times. Religion became something more to me than outward form. I saw that it was practical, demonstrable Science and law—the Science of Life, the law of God, good.
