AN INDEX OF BELIEF

From the April 1888 issue of The Christian Science Journal


As one looks upon the complex condition surrounding us, and dwells thoughtfully upon the verdict of the senses, the impression is,—there must exist a power, in comparison to which man (mortal mind) sinks into utter insignificance; and yet, to the senses, man has made great and wonderful inventions. Man supposes the primitive cause of all knowledge to be based on material law, and he saps this supposed law for his benefit, receiving for a time, perhaps, a gratification of the desires of sense.
