Before I became a student of Christian Science, about three years ago, I knew it was wrong to hate, but I did. I knew it was wrong to criticize others, but I did. Self-righteousness, self-love, self-justification, envy, jealousy, revenge—I accepted these as part of man's real identity. The world seemed full of sin, disease, and death—not a very pretty picture—and I questioned the validity of my own thinking.

Then I met a Christian Scientist. This individual expressed qualities I was searching for. I began daily to study the Bible Lessons in the Christian Science Quarterly. I began to understand God, and man made in His likeness. Human relationships were becoming more harmonious for me. All desire for tobacco and alcohol completely left me; chronic headaches were becoming less frequent.
