"IF THE LORD BE GOD, FOLLOW HIM"

From the June 1947 issue of The Christian Science Journal


THE Old Testament records Elijah's exhortation to the people that they depart from idolatrous worship and give undivided loyalty to the one and only God. The narrative reads ( I Kings 18:21 ): "And Elijah came unto all the people, and said, How long halt ye between two opinions? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him.
