For quite some time I have been...

For quite some time I have been helped by the testimonies of others, but have hesitated about sending in my own. I had been more or less interested in Christian Science for a number of years, in fact had been helped by its healing truths, but after the demonstrations were made I took it for granted that my work was finished and fell back into the channels of materiality. I figured that if anything unpleasant happened all I had to do was to call on a practitioner, state my case, and everything would be taken care of. Finally the testing time came.

I became ill with what the doctors call hardening of the liver. According to their diagnosis this disease is incurable. After receiving this news I made up my mind that there was nothing left for me to do but to fall back on Christian Science. I employed a practitioner, and she informed me that Christian Science was a life study and had to be carried out according to the teachings of our beloved textbook. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy.

Mine was not an instantaneous healing, but was gradual and thorough. As the truth stated in the definition of "man" on page 475 of the textbook dawned on my consciousness, and I caught a glimpse of the fact that man is spiritual, perfect, and indestructible, and does not consist of organs which can be well or sick, the alarming and distressing symptoms disappeared. Christ Jesus' statement ( John 8:32), "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," appeals to me more and more as I advance onward and upward. I also find "the scientific statement of being" (Science and Health, p. 468) of great help.
