I was first attracted to Christian Science...

I was first attracted to Christian Science by the practical nature of its teaching and the clear explanation of God and man given by its Discoverer and Founder, Mary Baker Eddy, in her textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Orthodox teaching had up till this time failed to satisfy me in this regard.

Although I did not come to Christian Science for physical healing, it was not long before I experienced this benefit. For several years I had been a constant sufferer from catarrh of the throat, and although able to continue my daily business, I was often very much distressed by this condition, and sought to gain relief by using various material remedies, but with no success. Finally, I decided that there was no cure for this complaint, and consequently believed that I should just have to bear it. I recall at one time speaking about this condition to the minister of the church to which I belonged, and telling him of my efforts to find a material remedy. He very kindly assured me that this was sent by God to bring me closer to Him, just as St. Paul had a thorn in the flesh for the same reason. I could never really accept this explanation.
