From the June 1911 issue of The Christian Science Journal

THE recent reading of some critical comments respecting Christian Science and its Leader has caused the present writer to question himself: Would it be possible for you to forsake the cause of Christian Science, or to fall away from trying to live its precepts? And if falling away, where would you fall? Do you merely believe in this Science of being, or do you truly understand it? If the unity of God and His creation, man and the universe, is understood, how could you depart from this certain knowledge of so great salvation? If the above-mentioned editorial critic could have had the present writer's experience, surely his unwarranted opinions would never have been penned. In July, 1905, I found myself in a southern city, in that extremity of mind and body which has been described as God's opportunity.
