SATURDAY, JUNE 23, 1917 TIIE LETHBRIDGE DAILY ifERALD Christian Science Lectiire Dr. ChadwIcU, ono of tho most notocl of Christian Science locturors, visited Lethbridge Thursday ovoning and de-llvored.l(l8 lectnrD hoforo an interested audience In tho S.O.B. hall. Tho following In n summary of the lecture: ,:- .. � . A Thought World In the ovolutlon of humnn thinking It is..becoming more and more ovldont that "wo live in a thought world. Whatever^; confronts ...us must ho mental procurement, else there could be rio men't&l.or conscious recognition ot it. What doos tho. eye bohold, but a mental irriago pictured on the retina? Wo bqo thoughts because wo think them. Thinjrs'aro thoughts and thoughts are things.'. DlvostJhuman existence of all thought, find there would-be nothing left to .see, hoar, touch, toRto or smell. Without thought there would be nothing to Uiln'g or to talk about. Wrk Eddy's Discovery It was in tho yoar 18CG that Mrs. Eddy made tho all-important discovery that! "all causation was Mind, and every" 'of.Wct a mental phenomenon" (Retrospection and Introspection, p. 24).-' By Mind sbo moans not the carnal or mortal mind which "Is enmity against God," but one Infinite supremo creative governing Intelligence of the universe, eternal and unchangeable. Health and Disease Christian Scientists are a groat deal moro inloreatod in tho subject of health than in disease. They havo found �jut that tho right idea of health when intelligently presented to humanity is far more contngious than tho thought of disease. They do not believe in getting sick and then having to become proficient In a knowledge of disease beforo learning how to bo well. They have learned that health is tho normal condition of man in Christian Science, and that disease is a mfstako of the human mind to lie corrected by a right understanding of health as an attrlbuto of God. Jesus did not advise us to acquire a knowledge of disease in order to heal disease. He did not counsel his followers to study medical works in order to cope Intelligently with tho Mb of tho flesh. He did not say to study what the world says about sin in order to avoid its experience. What did ho say? This, "Seek ye first tho kingdom of God and Ilia righteousness" which is equivalent to saying, "Seek ye first the spiritual understanding ot God and His right thoughts or ideas." Christian Science has come to open the door of consciousness to ro-coivo this understanding of God and to apply it to the correction of every human mistake. Christian Science Healing The beneflclent influence of Christ-inn Science is far-reaching. "It blesses him who gives and him who takes." It ia no respoctor of persons or ailments. It appeals to all classes of people, bidding them awaken from the daydream o� life in matter. Those who listen to its message of "on earth peace, good will toward men," experience moral and physical healing. It Is very plain to tho student of Christian Science' that tho direct effects of wrong thinking upon tho body, sticluas the indulgence of malice,' anger, hatred and revenge, cannot bo healed either by drug or knife. Tho root or tho trouble is. not visible in any physical manifestation, but lies hidden In tho dark recesses of mortal consciousness. In this consciousness must wo grapplo with every mortal belief, theory, opinion or suggestion, and silence its sclt-asaumed right to oxistonco, beforo real healing can be accomplished. Only through mental surgery, In other words, do wo make practlcnl use of tho ounce ot prevention. Drugging the poor Innocent body to correct the effects of sinful thought is little else than trying to erase a shadow on the wall without interfering with that which is responsible for tho shadow. Christian Sclonce deals directly with the moral fault In tho treatment of disease. If ono Is receptive to the true idea of God, ready and willing to bo shown how to change his habits of thought, this Idea will quickly supplant a multitude of erroneous theories and opinions and often bring immediate rollef from suffering. The greatest reform movement on earth today Is Christian Science healing, because It means the coming of Christ to human consciousness. One who honestly approaches Christian Science, even ns a remody for some so-called physical ailment, will moet with tho greatest surprise of his life. Our Leader Mrs. Eddy's vision of the Christ not only healed her of the effects of a so-callod fatal accident, but enabled her to reach a purified mental height whore sha could spiritually discern the deep things of God and give them to the world. She named her dlBcovery Christian Science. She was, to use her own words, "only a scribe echoing the harmonics of heaven in divlno metaphysics" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist and Miscellany, p. 115), consequently sho bad no excuse to oi'l'or for inditing the pages of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." Tho world owes a profound debt of gratitude to this noble woman for what is contained in this unique book. There are many thousands who can testify that tho Bible was a sealed book before Science and Health came to thorn. Mrs. Eddy as the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science, fought the good fight and bravely won her laurels. Her works which have followed her havo proved her one of the greatest and yet most humble of religious leaders and teachers. False Teaching The world is burdened with false teaching. There is much in the world concerning health and disoaso which is misleading in tho extreme.

This was not. and cahndt bo done by human argument or reiUbn-ing. It requires spiritual undemanding, and according to, Scripture this understanding is a "knowledge of the holy," or holy one.

Then why make an exception-In, the case of disease and insist that It^iione among the errors of the human ^jnljifl' shall bo feared, studied, Investigated, classified, discussed, diagnosed.'"and published broadcast in tho attempt to find health? Christian. Science makes it very clear to the world that this is a very sure method of perpetuating disoaso and of eradicating one's true sense of health. Since this method has been in voguo diseases and fear have multiplied and suffering has increased. One of tho first lessons of Christian Science is to reverse this barbarous habit of thinking, talking, and heralding the symptons of disease. There is nothing moro enervating and demoralizing than to magnify in thought some phase of evil which one would overcome or destroy. Tractitloner and Treatment In deference to the world's ignorance of Christian metaphysics wo speak of treatment and practitioner In Christian Science. Students of Christ-inn Science who have experienced hoaling and regeneration, who have mode n thorough study of our Leader's works, and arc loyal to her teachings, are in a position to prove to others their understanding of the Christ healing. Through what is known as treatment hundreds of persons throughout tho world arc daily being hc&'.ed in Christian Sclonce. Such treatment is not the erroneous influence of any form of mesmerism or hypnotism, of one human mind over another, but is the activity of the Word of God in human consciousners. It is the mental approach or coming of the right idea of God. It is tho prayer that knows instead of believes what constitutes tho kingdom of God in man. Many who are sufficiently purified In thought and manner of living to express the right idea of treatment, and who can devote their time to such work, are known as Christian Science practitioners. Their mission is not primarily to effect physical healing, but to bring to humanity a scientific understanding of God and His "saving health." This right idea of health acts as a spiritual leaven, purging out of human consciousness every erroneous or unholy thought. There is nothing more sacred than treatment in Christion Science, mid the practitioner who lets God give the treatment Is indeed a true follower of the Christ. The Text Book Along with nil great subjects, Christian Science has Its text book, "Science and Health with Key to tho Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy. This book Is indeed a spiritual key to the Bible, an$ as such it has proved itself to be the Bible's best friend. It has opened up tho hidden spiritual or metaphysical meaning ot the Scriptures, has caused thousands upon thousands of persons to reverence the "book of books" as never before, to pouder and study its sacred'' pages from a pure sense of love for the truth, hns greatly increased Ub sale and circulation, in fact, has made the Bible an indispensable companion in numberless homes In all sections of the world. Despite all opposition to what the' world imagines Christian Science to be, the demand for Mrs. Eddy's book is constantly increasing, and Ub inspired healing message continues to bring joy and happiness into the lives of suffering humanity. Results certainly prove that the Christian Scienco text-book is a scientific presentation to the world of right ideas. These brave warriors of. the mental realm will-continue to "fight tho good fight of faith" and to "lay hold on etornal life," until "the earth shall be filled with the knowledge ot tho glory of the Lord, as the waters cover tho sea." 8ALF0URJELLS OF VISIT TO STATES London, June 20.-Arthur J. Hal four, secretary of state for foreign affairs, gave an accounting of his stewardship ln'cTJflfioctlon with his mission to the XTnitcd Stales to .the members of the ho.UBC.of commons today In a luncheon arranged in hie honor by tho Empire Parliamentary association. The guests were members of parliament and cabinet'ministers, with tho American ambassador, Walter nines Page, and a few colonial representatives as the only outsiders. JM-Promlor Herbert 13. Asqulth presided, as a token of tbo non-political character of the'association, with Mr. Balfour on his right and Ambassador Page and Premier Lloyd George on his left.!; The other members of the cabinet sat at a centra^ table. After a cordial welcome home, voiced by Mr. Asqulth, Mr. Balfour said: Points Common Cause "I undertook . the headship of tho American raissidrr with some reluctance and diffidence; I felt It so easy to do harm and not so easy to do good. But, looking back, I feel that no harm baa been done and most good,', ;i'"The success of the mission was not due to the personal qualifications of;.your representatives, but to far deeper and more permanent causes, vflileh must give ub all groat cause for gratification. I say nothing of the hospitality of the United Stales, which is proverbial. I need not dwell on the boundless v kindness shown us, which was so obviously from the heart. The American people would have given us that same hospitality under any circumstances. Alliance Firmly Founded "What movos me and all of Britain, and France, too, is something deeper, namely, the tremendous and spontaneous enthusiasm of America for what is now our common canst! and the deep feeling of sympathy which manifestly animates the entire American community, north, south, east and west. "It was not in the power of any mission or any group of Individuals to create that feeling. Our mission was merely the occasion for its manifestation; it gave the. Americans a welcome Chance to show what they felt in the cause of world freedom. '.'Thus'the mission .has been the occasion of the most beneficent development of international relations in the history of the world. Most alliances in past history havo been based on temporary agreements between na-tib'ris"?or the pursuit of certain aims and ambitions and, .therefore, passed with tho passinglBt'.cnsion. But the cooperation between England and America, based on a deep congruity of ideals, will endure as long as the two nations are content to pursue these ideals, which, I pray God, may be forever. "Our alliance is based on a great moral consideration. We alike do not wish to use'warUOh.instrument of expansion, arid so''wc here may bo certain that the United States will not leave us until our great ends are accomplished.
