Like many others, I came to...

Like many others, I came to Christian Science seeking healing. I was very miserable with a malignant attack of eczema, and after many months, getting no relief from physicians, and upon the recommendation of a neighbor, I attended several Wednesday evening testimony meetings at the local Christian Science church. I soon came to the conclusion that if the testimonies of healing which I heard there were true, then Christian Science could heal me. I inquired about a practitioner, and was referred to one, who lent me a copy of Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy. The practitioner's home was not far from my own, and two or three times a week I stopped in to chat with her, and to listen to the truth, she giving me daily treatments for my difficulty.

This continued for just four weeks. I became so interested in the textbook, which I read and studied at every opportunity, and the practitioner's help and explanations, that I forgot I was seeking healing, and accepted the revelation of Truth as a child would accept a message or statement from his parents. I woke up one morning greatly improved, except for one spot on my leg, where the eczema had been the worst, and even that cleared up in a few days. That was fourteen years ago.

During these years I have had numerous other healings, such as those of toothache, colds, the tobacco habit, business discords, and so on. These healings have been brought about through the application of the truth as taught in Christian Science, sometimes with the aid of a practitioner, more often without. But Christian Science is more than just a healing proposition. It is a way of life— the way of life taught and practiced by Christ Jesus. On page 367 of "Miscellaneous Writings" Mrs. Eddy writes, "This Science requires man to be honest, just, pure; to love his neighbor as himself, and to love God supremely." That is Christianity as Jesus taught and lived it and that is Christianity as it is taught in Christian Science, and just so far as we apprehend it and live it do we come "unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ."
