Let the redeemed of the Lord...

"Let the redeemed of the Lord say so" (Ps. 107:2). Many years ago at a time of great need, Christian Science was recommended to me by a complete stranger whom I had never seen before and who said that he himself was not a Christian Scientist.

I did not investigate this religion immediately. However, several months after my conversation with the stranger, while looking at some books in a public library, I came upon the textbook of Christian Science, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. Realizing that it was the one mentioned by the stranger, I borrowed the book from the library, took it home, and started to read it.

Because the drinking habit had been with me for many years, I was much impressed by the statement in the textbook (p. 6): "To cause suffering as the result of sin, is the means of destroying sin. Every supposed pleasure in sin will furnish more than its equivalent of pain, until belief in material life and sin is destroyed."
