Authorized Statements on Christian Science by Committees on Publication

R. Ashley Vines, Committee on Publication for Victoria, Australia
The Spectator, Melbourne

"Faith in the untried" has always been regarded as a virtue, provided there is reason for the faith that is in us. In a recent issue of yours, Dean Harold Hough is quoted from The Christian World as giving credit to the people of the United States for the existence of the Christian Science religion there, "partly owing," he says (in a paragraph under the caption "The Urge to Experiment"), "to the touching national faith in the untried."

Progress in the understanding and demonstration of the truth as taught in Christian Science is not confined to the United States, nor are citizens of that republic the only people with "faith in the untried." Christian Science has been tried in man's extremity by people in almost every part of the civilized world, and has not been found wanting, as may be seen even by a mere perusal of the many well-authenticated testimonies of healing published weekly in the Christian Science Sentinel, and monthly in The Christian Science Journal.
