"LET US HOLD FAST OUR PROFESSION"

From the August 1920 issue of The Christian Science Journal


History records that during the reign of Emperor Constantine, over three hundred years after the birth of Christ Jesus, the primitive Christian religion became very popular; so popular, in fact, that the emperor himself felt impelled for political reasons to forsake his chosen faith and become "a Christian. " Up to this time, so history records, the followers of Jesus, or the early Christians, had fulfilled the Master's prophetic words in John, "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
