S. B. pr ._..._li_ Member of the Board of Lectureship th of The Mother Church, The First th Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts. an An ex-mayor of New York declared C not long ago, that "a person who wants c to be honest nowadays must be a i crank on honesty." That is just a forcible way of describing the present ' conflict between good and evil, and the extent to which one must go to main tain his standard of right. Nations w and individuals have been aroused as th never before to combat a movement commonly known as Bolshevism; and while armed forces have gathered to di oppose its military encroachments, its of mental forces of demoralization in a business and society operate apparently nt unhindered. But there is a remedy , for such hidden evils in the promised ei Comforter which Jesus described, not li1 as a person, but as the "Spirit of A truth," which "will guide you into all tu truth." When Christian Science in brought a return of primitive Chris- it tian healing. it raised that standard C1 of Truth which makes us free in mind di and in body. it I remember when a child. with what ol amazement I first discovered that some people do not always speak the truth; id and I remember my perplexity as I di begged to be told how to detect false- tc hood in ordinary conversation. My cl difficulty gradually disappeared as I w began to learn in Christian Science it that a right sense of honesty, based tt upon Principle. is a keen detective of T dishonest motives. We sometimes G speak of that natural discernment as C intuition; for intuition is the ex- it pressed intelligence of spiritual qual- w ities. This may explain why so many a spiritually thinded women often go di- d rectly and unerringly to the very heart st of a problem which seems to baffle the k reasoning process of others. That very directness is sometimes called "a b1 woman's reason." Questionable Standards. a Those who are unwilling to obey an 01 absolute standard of right, generally tl have a flexible standard which is t' sometimes called "the law of neces- cl sity." This phrase. "the law of neces- S sity," applies to those who are honest h in appearance, but who are quite ready T to act dishonestly whenever the re ward seems to shift about. Such a variable standard must be policy or deception, and not Principle. In the book of Job, in the Bible, you may re member how Satan once challenged the purity of Job's goodness, possibly tl because the Deceiver is always the a most deceived. So he insisted that a Job's goodness was nothing but a sub- e terfuge to gain some reward in heaven, o -that is to say, a form of selfishness. Those who make selfishness instead of Principle the standard of their actions must agree with Satan in upholding r "the law of necessity." But the fram ers of the American Declaration of Independence recognized an eternal Truth when they wrote that men "are endowed by their Creator with certainf unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," The pod of Christen dom, therefore, is the divine Principle or Creator of those life-giving and lib erating fruits of the Spirit, which are expressed unselfishly in right-minded men pnd women everywhere. An intelligent pagan of education and refinement may be found obeying the ordinary canons of honesty, be cause he has learned that honesty will t *serve his best interests, therefore he will be found acting as honestly as he can. But his standard of honesty ist not the Christian God, or the divine Principle of honesty; for he worships a god fashioned by the hand of man. SSo long uas he has no Principle, he an havy no real qualities derived from Principle, and therefore no real sense of honesty. Thus a man's standard of right depends entirely upon the nature of the God he worships. According tp the Century Dictionary, I "There are no two words in the Eng- k lish language used so confusedly one for the other as the words rile and p ncciple ..-..... You can make a rsk,; you cannot make a principle; you can lay down a rule; yeou cannot, properly 1 speaking, lay down a principle ...... Youcan only declare it. .. Iisi priciple that 'the Sabbath was made I fc.r man'." The fact that the fourth Commandment is an emanation from Principle was the lesson Moces learned from his experiences in the wilderness with the manna. Always therqe was enough for their daily supply and nothing more; but on the sixth day, a• saupply of bread for two days could be( Sgathered.

Surrounding this dig church, there are heathen temples an filled with idols fashioned by the hand rp of man. Not long ago a severe drought w. afflicted the city, and for many days fir the pagan priests implored their gods to send rain. When the drought con- Ni tinued unabated, the priests in one of in the temples took matters into their he own hands, and proceeded to punish HI the gods. The idols of their own mak- te ing were removed from the cool, spa- de cious temple and placed out of doors in to the full heat of the sun. Then the priests began to mock and chide them m like so many children, even taunting he them with such remarks as. "Stay an there and see how you like to bake in Ti the sun." And there they sat until re the rain came. About the same time sti an accident, which was immediately ne charged to the anger of the gods, oc curred in one of the mines of Korea. pr So the mines were closed until exor- st cist priests were brought from long distances to perform rites and cere- fu monies intended to appease the wrath PI of the gods. It seems, therefore, that ch the heathen diety which is liable to de wrath, is very much like the Satan of L; the Bible. Christ Dethrones Satan. The Founder of Christianity repu diated the notion that Satan could cast gr out Satan, and gave as a reason that a kingdom divided against itself can- F not stand. He once spoke of a certain ca woman who had been bowed together fo eighteen years "and could in no wise lift up herself," as "a daughter of Abraham. whom Satan hath bound. lo. ti these eighteen years." He healed her m immediately by the power of God, and 31 it was on the Sabbath day. The B Christian God therefore does not send h disease, but He heals disease. He is. b in other words, the divine Principle hi of our health and holiness. F To the Christian Scientist, the Christ 1l idea bears the same relation to the tl divine Principle as the sun's rays bear o0 to the sun itself. Christ Jesus de- o0 clared himself to be the light of the tt world.-the ame light that appeared ft in the beginning when God said. "Let P there be light: and there was light." ai That light was the saving Christ: but m God. the divine Principle; was the it Creator of it. In due course. the com ing of that light as a saving power V was spoken of as "Immanuel, or God vi with us," which is the appearing of bi divine intelligence in human con- al sciousness, healing and saving man- si kind. f, Bible scholars make a distinction d between Christ and Jesus, which tl Christian Science explains; for God tl appointed the man Jesus to the office 1 of Christ. Christ Jesus therefore was P the promised Messiah, or Mediator be- t( tween God and men. He rightly de- n clared himself to be, not God, but the a Son of God, bearing witness through fi his healing ministry unto the Christ. T Truth, that redeems and saves all 14 mankind. ii Healing By Faith. For a long time professed Christians - fell into such idolatrous methods that they utterly lost sight of the healing power of Christ. All they beheld was the visitation of evil, and they prayed after the manner of the heathen to appease the wrath of their god. In effect, they really became worshippers of Satan, and that continued until a young priest of the church started a movement which made it possible for people of every rank and station to read the Bible in their own language. This was the great reformer, Martin Luther. As a result of this Bible study, the people began to gain a more correct view of God, and occasional in stances of healing rewarded their faith. A very significant and important re sult of Luther's Bible study was the healing of his disciple, Melanchthon. The man had lost conseiousless, his eyes were set, and the court physician had pronounced him beyond human aid. When Luther saw his dearest friend In that condition, he was vis ibly frightened. Then, rousing him self, he exclaimed: "O God, how has the devil injured this thy instrument!" There was the evidence of his Bible study; for he refused to attribute that sickness to God. Rather did he appeal to the Giver of all good to save his friend. To use his own words, I "wearied His ears with all His prom Ises of hearing prayers, which I could repeat out of Holy Writ; so that He could not bat hear me, if ever I were to trust in His promises." Then grasping Melanchthon by the hand, Luther exclaimed, "Be of good courage, Philip; thou shalt not die. . . . He has pleasure in life, not in death .. ITherefore give no place to the spirit Iof sorrow, and be not thine own mur derer." In response to that right I sense of God's loving Gare, Melanch thon's breath revived, but he acted very much like a drowning man who begs to be let alone that he may die in peace. "By no means, Philip," cried Luther; "thou must serve our Lord Godl yet longer." When food was I brought, Luther burst out with all the threat, "Thou must eat, or I will ex communicate thee." It is lnteresting Ito know that Melanchthon responded Ito that true sense of God and lived I twenty years longaer. Mr. Eddy's Early Prqram. SIt is not at all uncommon for devout Christians to be heled becabh their study of the Bible openas to them a more correct view of God. Calvin l nrox, Wesley ad other Christlan worthies have mani· ted woderhfl healing power, as their prayers lifted thought to glim~,e Od's true nature. Such childlike qualities as hamility, spirltual receptivity and teachablenes ommualcate those heavealy blsaings to human eaonslouses. So It Is re Seganled aa ChriMstia hty to Instruct the receptive thought of the child la the saving grace et God. It was this Christia cultur that Mr. 3ddy, the Discoverer and Fouder of Christian selemee, reeived freom her mother; far Mrs. Edy dywas ta tre i her y9th a to iltk to d r diewanb tn a eve h tim lf teabls ,ay rM aher was I -eae abse wib- anoe, her mother r- min o-ls ,Ills et. ,de- '. i ! B~~ Ilmn " ~,! -Iv , I i would turn to Him in prayer. Mary did pray fervently to God for deliver ance from the fever, and she . as quickly healed. Naturally her mother was glad: for the healing had con firmed her loving trust in God's care. Many proofs of healing attended Mrs. Eddy's walk through life. attest ing God's ever presence and confirming her faith in His goodness and power. Her faith *as put to the severest test in 1S66, when she was facing death itself. Turning for consolation to her Bible, she began to read from Matthew the healing of the palsied man. The account of the healing held her attention as never before. and she must have glimpsed the great Truth that the divine power which had restored that man in Jesus' time was still operative; for God's power can never change. The result was as im mediate; for she arose from her bed prefectly well, dressed herself and startled her family by her sudden ap pearance. This was a most wonder ful proof to her that God is the great Physician, whose healing power is changeless: and then and there sh,' determined to search for the scientifict Law which must underlie such in-i stances of healing. Personal Items. Mrs. Eddy is known to thousands of grateful men and women throughout the world to be the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, and be cause of that, she commands our pro foundest reverence and gratitude. It was my privilege to know some thing of her as a loving, unselfed wo man.-the kindest friend I ever had. IMy father was a deep student of the Bible. and when Christian Science healed two members of our family, he began the study of this Science and became an earnest Christian Scientist. For many years my parents were close t ly associated with Mrs. Eddy, who was their pastor, teacher and friend. At one time Mrs. Eddy spent a week at our home, and I then had the oppor tunity of seeing her to be a gentle, af fectionate woman, interested in our t pets and problems, laughing with us and sympathizing with us, yet always t mindful of her great mission to suffer ing humanity. An incident that occurred during her visit with us has always stood out vividly in my memory. One morning before breakfast, my sister sat down at the organ and began to play and sing the good old gospel hymn taken from the psalms, "W'eeping may en 2 dure for a night, but joy cometh in. 1 the morning." My father joined in 1 the song, and when it was finished, e Mrs. Eddy's door opened and she ap s peared, her face radiant. Then she told us that she had continued all night in prayer over some problem. e and the answer had come when she .i felt the spirit expressed in that song. This incident evidently impressed her; I for several years later, she referred to it in a letter to my father. (Continued on next page.)
