Christian Science Lecture
Draws Attentive Audience
The Christian Science loetur given at
the Grand opera bouse last night by
.Mr.. Bliss Knnpp, C. .8.. B. anil member
of the Board of Lectureship of the
Mother Church, The First Church of
Christ, Scientist, of Boston, drew a
good sized audience. The lecturer was
introduced by Mrs. Anna Spinning
Flint, who Jo presenting the lecturer
spoke as follows:
vlt is recorded in the Bible, in the 17th
chapter of Acts, that the Apostle l'uul
bad journeyed to Athens, that great city
of learning, culture and pleasure.
; Paul however was not deceived by
outward appearances for we find it
further recorded in the same chapter,
that he stood in the midst of Mars' hill j
and tnus auuressea tneni:
t "Ye men of Athens I perceive that
in all things ye are too superstitious...
.;. For. as f passed by and beheld your
devotions I found an altar with this in
scription, 'To the unknown Qod.'
, Whom therefore ye ignorantly . wor
ship, him declare I unto you."
t Had the world heeded the explana
tions and definitions of a known and
understandable God as given by the
.Early.' Christians, the snd pages of the
history of innumerable wars, ceaseless
persecutions and woes would never have
been written.
But nil through the darkness of the
centuries succeeding the light of primi

Irt the middle of the last century,
when materialistic philosophy and na

the very foundations of religious faith
and experience, there was living in or
near the city of Boston, a city that has
been called the "Athens of America,"
a woman who is now known as the dis
coverer and founder, of Christian Sci
ence. ...
This woman was past middle age, in
poor health and poor in pocket, and, as
the saying goes, "alone in the world."
Apparently she hod very little left to

the world, particularly the Christian
churches, would be glad to learn of the

The world however, including the Chris

discredited and reviled the messenger.
Mrs. Eddy was obliged to establish a
church organization of her own, and
among the varied activities of this won

over the civilized world, she instituted

Christian Science: The Revelation of
Divine Power. -
During many ' centuries men have
grown accustomed to think of religion
as a haven of rest to those in sorrow
and temptation. But while religion
ministers to the mind, it regards the
diseased ' body in helpless compassion.
Such helplessness contrasts strongly
with the religion of Jesus Christ, who
made no distinction between mind and
body. He asked, "Whether is easier
to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or
to suy. Arise and walk!" He set the
standard of religious achievement by
healing sickness and sin by the same
prayer. It is the purpose of Christian
Science to increase the joy of life by
restoring to the infinite compassion of
Jesus' teachings the lost element of

Intion in the Master's teaching, "I am
come that they might have life, and j
that they might have it more abund-
nntly. " There followed, too, the expla
nation, "This is life eternal, thnt they
might know thee the only true God, and
Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent."
Two things are therefore needful to
save one's life. It is to know God, and
also His Hon Jesus Christ. Some believe
that cJsus was God, and that belief ex
cludes the God and Father to whom
Jesus himself prayed. The condition of
though thnt sets aside Christian heal
ing may not bo so much a lack of faith,
as a complete omission from prayer of
any recognition of the God and Father
to whom Jesus prayed.
Jesus Not God.
It was the day of the resurrection,
early in the morning, that Jesus ap
peared to alary and sent her with a
message, saying, "Go to my brethren,
and say unto them, I ascend unto my
Father and your Father: and unto my,
God, and your God." Now if Jesus werei
Hod, as so many believe, and there is
one God, how could God have brethren?
But inasmuch as he recognized himself
to be, not God, but the Son of God. he
could have brethren and could truth
fully say, "Go to my brethren, and say I
unto them, I ascend unto my Father
and your Father; and unto my God, and
your God. ' ' When Jesus was before the
tomb of I.aznrus, it is recorded that he
"lifted up his eyes, and said, Father I
thank thee thnt thou hast heard me.
And I knew that thou nearest me al
ways." He certainly was not praying
to himself on that occasion, Previously
h had u id to the woman of Samnriu
at the well, "God is Spirit." When,
therefore, the disciples gathered around
to examine the spear wound and the
nail prints, he took occosion to remind
them thnt "Spirit hath not flesh and
bones as ye see me have." From that
the disciples knew that the human form
of Jesus was not God. Indeed, to wor
ship a flcjdiy form would be in conflict
with the second commandment of the
Decalogue, which forbids the worship
of any graven image. Jesus recognized,
moreover, that the power he employed
was not of himself; for he said, "1 can
of mine own self do nothing: . . be
cause I seek not mine own will, but the
will of the Father which hnth sent me."
Again he said, referring to himself.
"The Son can do nothing of himself,
but what he seeth the Father do."

conception about what God really is.
Jesus found it exceedingly difficult to
get the people to accept the truth about
Him. It was necessary to avoid, in so
far as possible, any statement about
God that would be open to doubt or con
troversy. He endeavored therefore to
portray a right apprehension of God
by making the people familiar with the
effect of divine power on humanity, The
popular belief prevailed then as now
that God sends sickness to discipline
mortals and bring them to God. But
when Jesus portrayed the nature of God
as He actually is, it had the effect of
healing the sick in every case and
thereby proved, in a manner that admit
ted of no doubt or controversy, that
sickness is no part of God's nature. An
other popular belief adhered to then as
new was that God knows, or at least
permits, sin. That too was disoosed of
by showing the effect divine power had
in cleansing sinners even as light always
dispells darkness. Moreover people be
lieved then as now that God takes awar
our loved ones for some inscrutable pur
pose; ana this belief has unquestionably
thrust more people into infidelity and
agnosticism than have ever been rescued
therefrom. But when eJsus declared the of an inanimate law, the divine frin
truth about God as He actually is, it de-1 ciple comprehends all intelligence, gen
stroyed death and the grave, and I tleness, peace and power to heal and
thereby proved the nature of God to be save mankind through law. .

People could see the physical changes

a manner that admitted of no doubt.

Healing Law.
The first man in Bible history to
know God well enough to heal sickness
and sin was Moses, and it came about
by his recognition that the divine pow
er operates through law. Before that he
knew God only as the great "I am,"
but that was not sufficient to win con
fidence in himself as the messenger of
God. The necessity for him to speak
the truth about God so convincingly
that tho people would actually believe
what he siiid, was the occasion for God
to reveal His healing nature by tw-o
distinct signs. The first was with the
rod by which was proved the divine
supremacy over personified evil. The
second was the healing of leprosy.
Perhaps those two were selected be
cause none but the p wer of God has
ever been known to destroy leprosy
and sin. But that exhibition of divine
power over sickness and sin revealed
to Moses the existence of a well de
fined law of healing which enabled
him, thereafter, to employ the divine
power, guided by the intelligence of a
well defined law, in healing leprosy
and serpent bites. It revealed to him
the existence of certnin fncts concern
ing the healing nature of God in which
no variation has ever been perceived.
It marked the existence of an unchang
ing law of healing with which human
beings had been hitherto unacquuinted.
It revealed something so definite and
tangible about the nature of God that
tho people believed him just as God
said they would.
God Is Truth.
Now that which Moses saw in the
healing power of God was the Truth;
whereupon he declared, "Thou art a
God of truth." David Inter declared
in the psalms, 'Thy law is the truth."
And Jesus indicated the intimate rela
tion that exists between Truth and the
healing law, when he said, "Ye shall
know- the truth, and the truth shall
make you free.'' That is, a knowledge
of God, not as a human form, but as
Truth has a healing effect. Mrs. Ed
it v him therefore accepted that scrip
tural definition thut God is Truth, and
also its intimate relation to law; for
she has written in Science nnd Health,
" Not personal intercommunion but di
Mine lnw is the communicator of truth,
health, and harmony to earth and
It is true thnt every system of re
ligion known to men claims to be the
promulgation of revealed truth; but
that which differentiates the demon
strable revelation of Jesus Christ from
nil others is its power to give life and
to restore health. It is the life-giving
power in Christian truth which make
it demonstrable in healing sickness and
sin. One school of philosophers has
propounded the theory that truth is
two fold; that there is one truth called
reason, and another truth called revel
ation, but that revelation has no law
and is lacking in a reasonable explana
tion. The result is agnosticism. Chris
tianitv, on the other hand , tenches
there is hut one Truth and this Truth
r.n.l It tenches moreover that di
vine Truth is expressed through lnw
which may be understood and demon
strated in Christian. This teaching re
eoiieiles reason ami revelation in the
oneness of Truth.
True Worship.
Some may feel they havp lost their
God in thinking of Him as Truth; our
Jesus declared in all earnestuess that

fection for others that is pure and
constant, it takes form in goodness,
which is an attribute of God. In this
simple process he comprehends the law
of goodness, and in the understanding
of it he Teaches to the actual reeogni
tion of infinite good. In the same
spiritual understanding of divine law
shall one worship the God and Father
who is Spirit and Truth.
God is Principle
As the nature of God continued to
unfola before the vision of St. John
it' was revealed to him that "God is
love." Paul described the intimate re
lation that exists between Love and
Truth when he said, sLove is the ful
filling of the law." Other scriptural
names used to define the nature of God
are Soul and Mind. Christian Science
accepts all those descriptive defini
tions of deity and adds one more. Since
there is a divine law to express the
healing, it is reasonable to suppose it
must have a Principle. That is, the
nature of God must include Principle
aa a descriptive definition. But far

north and the south, the east and the

Tru Intelligence.
Tho Christian Scientist becomes fa-
, to me when I was a student in tne oie
montary schools. For a month I was
troubled with difficulty that may be
described in the words of Paul, "The
good that I would I do not: but the
evil which I would not, that I do."
With me it was a difficulty in answer
ing my school problems correctly.
Though I might know the correct
answer, I would invariably say the
wrong thin?. Instead of excusing that
on the basis of stupidity, Paul saw in
such conditions the warring of the
fleshy miud, and so did my parents who
were Christian Scientists. My mother
proceeded to heal me of that difficulty
according to the teachrings of Christian
Science. With wonderful patience she
explained to me, in language I could
easily understand, the reason why chil
dren go to school. It is not so much
to assimilate a large mass of facts ns
it is to develop certain facilities; such
for example as perception, reason,
memory and application. Then she ex
plained to me that they are faculties
of the divine Mind, and as such must
be reflected through all alike. It
concedes the right to every one to
achieve the mental might of a genius.
Inasmuch as God is my Miud and my
intelligence, it was my right and duty
to claim and exercise that intelligence
which knows all that is necessary to
know. So clear was my relation to di
vine inclligenco established, that I
ceased to limit my mentnl capacity by
the size of a brain. Its scope was
broadened to that larger view of divine
intelligence which trnnscends brain.
Tho explanation was continued until I
could realize to a degree my true rela
tion to God who is tho only Miud and
intelligence. When I could realize this,
it became a reality to me, with the re
sult that I was completely healed of
the difficulty. The truth about God.
and mv relation to Him had set me
free. Therein is the proof that no hu
man intelligence has any validity if
contrary to the divine facilities; and
such of the human faculties as arc
valid, must derive their validity from
the divine.
Mind of Christ.
We havo no record in the four gos
pels thnt Jesus ever permitted himself
to be deceived or taken advantage ot
in any way. Had he been victimized,
it would have been by reason of a lack
of intelligence. But he claimed and

which constituted his divinity, and en

Sometimes it occurs that one is so
completely overwhelmed by sorrow and
grief that all the comfort and consola
tion of human affection seems helpless
to-brighten the thought. Then we need)
to remember that there is a sorrow that
purifies, and another sorrow that works
evil. It will sweeten or sour the dispo
sition according to the direction it
takes. But in the apparent helpless
ness of insurmountable grief, there is
the consolation that the power of one's
. - . .
right desire can steer its course uner
ringly into repentance and purification.
In the momentum of that directed ex
perience no harm can overtake us. Only
good can come out of it. Such an as
surance removes the fear aud heals
the grief. This is the real Comforter
at work in the human consciousness,
purifying one's thoughts and motives.
There is thereforo a grief that is
salutary; for it sweetens the disposi
tion, chastens the affections and en
ables one to be charitable toward the
faults of others. .
Mrs. Eddy's Discovery. "
The preparation for Mrs. Eddy 's great
discovery seemed to include much of the
sorrow nnd suffering that purifies one's
thought and purpose. Mrs. Eddy was
a gentle woman of deep religious expe
rience, traiued from her youth to sees.
in divine guidance actual relief from
sickness and distress. Added to that
was an unusual intellectual ability
which received careful training and de
elopment, so thnt she had great per
sonal charm by reason of her refined
manners and well-bnlnnced mind. Then,
in the flower of her youth, she was over
whelmed with grief' at the loss of all
that seemed near and dear to her. There
followed a long period of invalidism and
the search for a remedy, which culmin
ated in the conviction that disease re
sponds most readily to a mental remedy.
Still abiding in that conviction, she met
with an accident which was so serious
that it was expected to result fatally.
Knowing that only spiritual things could
save her, she turned to her Bible for
help, and as she read those spiritual
truths, she was wonderfully healed. That
was in 180(1. There was her proof of
mental healing, and that the divine
Mind is the healer to comfort in sorrow
and in sickness. The next step was to
learn the Science of that healing and,
as she Btatcs in Science and Health,
page 109, "I won my way to absolute
conclusions through divine revelation,
reason, and demonstration." Again, she
writes, "Reason and revelation were
reconciled, and afterwards the truth of
Christian Science was demonstrated,"
page 110- She stated that Science in
the Christian Science text book so simp
ly and logically that the simple reading
of that book has brought the healing
Comforter to multitudes of those in
sickness and distress, and made them
every whit whole.
Mrs. Eddy had thus become the dis
coverer of Christian Science, and the
founding of its institutional work was
to follow. In her joy to shnre such n
great blessing she appealed to the spirit
ual thought of learned men, only to suf
fer the rebuff of dignified silence. Her
first ray of hope came when that silence
was turned into ridicule and abuse; for
it meant that she hnd gained at least a
hearing. Deserted by friends and rela
tives, and opposed by subtle and power
ful influences whichever way she turn
ed, this woman patiently kept her
course in the founding of the various
institutions of Christinn Science, until
the movement has spread itself over
this world, and all within her own life
time. By her clear statement of scien
tific Christianity. Mrs. Kddy has enor
mously increased the number of follow
ers of Christ's teachings. The sick are
healed of bodily ailments by reading
its literature; the sinner may know
how to liberate himself from his sin;
and greatest of nil, the pure-minded
is given the power to save Himself from
the general belief in sin, so that the
good he desires to do, he can do. Mrs.
Eddy has therefore proved, in accord
ance with the vision in the apocalypse,
that a pure-minded woman, armed with
Science, can unlock the secrets of "the
law of the spirit of life in Christ Je
sus," and reveal the promised Comfort
er. Try as hard as one may, it is impos
sible to separate Moses from the com
mandments, or Jesus from the beati
tudes. When Jesus had that exalted
vision of law and prophesy on the
Mount of Transfiguration, the. human
representative of law and prophesy be
came apparent to those near enough to
get the lesson. It is equally certain thnt
the human representative of scientific
Christianity can never be separated
from the spiritual treasurers which she
has opened to our use.
Opposing Viewpoints.
A perplexing feature about Christian
Him who transcends brain. Most school
men, on the other hand, are trained to
regard brain as the seat of the intellect,
and matter as the fundamental basis of
thought. These two opposing systems
of philosophy, strange as it may seem,
have their .authority in the first two
chapters of Genesis in the Bible. The
first chapter, sometimes called the
Elohistic record of creation, presents an
absolutely good God, the source of all in
telligence and being, who knows no evil.
The second chapter and thereafter, call-
professionals. Nine dollars
ed the Jehovistic record of Creation,
presents a mixture of good and evil
which results in a third power called
mankind, and this third power is sup
posed to derive from the basis of matter
the intelligence to interpret both good
and evil. Now a talking serpent was the
author of that second record, and he is
supposed to lie iu all that he said.. In
fact there is no such thing in the animal
kingdom as a talking serpent. When
i contrasted, the two systems of creation
absolute opposites, so that if on.
I iu trim Mi a nthop miiur ha nUtt. iv.wM-rw
system of religion and philosophy
known to men, with but one exception,'
is founded ou the supposed mixture of!
good aad evil. That single exception
which is founded on an absolutely good
God who knows no evil, is the teaching
of Christ Jesus and of Christian Science.
Furthermore that system alone can de
stroy both sickness nnd sin.
Disease Mental.
Jesus healed physical disease on the
basis that the Truth makes freo. Four
thousand years of medicine has . en
deavored to force the conclusion that
disease is purely physical and that it
requires a physical remedy. The result
is that diseases have actually multi
plied. Jesus proved that sickness, dis
ease and fear are the errors and not
the truths of being, and they can bet
healed by a mental process. Their basis
being wholly material, and matter bing
mortal error, the truth of God dispels
those errors .just as light dispels dark
ness, just as the understanding that
two ami two are four dispels any denial
of that fact. And when one under
stands that truth, ho does not have to
sit up nights to be certain of it in the
morning. Jesus so understood the
nature of God as Truth, that he coukl
make it just as consciously apparent to
the man with the withered hand, and
that diseased condition was wiped out
By that process just as effectually as
one could take a sponge and wipe out
tho wrong figures on the blackboard.
le is generally recognized that certain
nervous disorders are mentul; for
though the person may be sick almost
to distraction, examination may disclose
no diseased organ, tissue or nerve. He
may have apparent physical ailmeuts, .
such as that trinity of disorders known '
as dyspepsia, heart palpitation, and in
somnia; but an examination discloses
no organic disease. The patient's
troubles are actually unreal, in the
sense that they have no physical cause.
But to the patient they are decidedly
real, in the sense that he feels them
constantly, and can not free himself
from them.
Though a patient may bo perfectly
sane while suffering from some nervous
ailment, his belief must be changed be
fore he can experience his healing. That
is uever brought about by imagining
himself well. Such primitive emotions
as fear and anger, which are common
to men aud beasts, arc said to produce
depressing and poisonous conditions.
Tho thought.of guilt is said to be even
more deleterious. Anger may cause a
person to become flushed or pallid in
the face, indicating the mental control
of the circulation. Indeed it may stop
one's digestion altogether, showing how
