[Original testimony in German]

I became acquainted with Christian Science...

I became acquainted with Christian Science about thirty years ago. At that time I was subject to severe attacks of epilepsy. My parents were near despair, for medical theories had been of no avail and my condition was constantly growing more serious.

Then we called upon a Christian Science practitioner for help. I was healed in one treatment. From that time on, the question was persistently in my thought, What healed you? The answer I always received was that God, Love, had healed me. But with what I had learned in a Protestant church and at school still in thought, this answer did not mean anything to me until I realized that what I had formerly believed must be incorrect. I had believed that God both loves and punishes, and therefore that I had to suffer.

I immediately enrolled in the Christian Science Sunday School and began to study this religion earnestly. Out of gratitude I began to take part in the activities of the church and became a member of The Mother Church.
