Christian Science came into my...

Christian Science came into my experience in answer to a desire for truth. I loved the church in which I had been brought up, and enjoyed my contacts with its scholarly and thoughtful teachers, but I became dissatisfied with its teaching. Feeling that religion was too serious a matter to be weighed against any other consideration, I bought textbooks on spiritualism and theosophy, only to lay them aside with the conviction that those theories fell short of my idea of truth.

A few months later some Christian Science literature was given to a member of the family circle who was recovering from the effects of an operation. She welcomed the teaching, but I was annoyed, because I mistakenly believed that the practice of Christian Science consisted of the patient pretending that he was well, ignoring the symptoms, and keeping up by will power.
