, D, KILPATRICK GIVES TALK AT SCIENCE CHURCH "Truth About God and Man" Is Subject of Detroit Lecturer "Christian Science: The Truth About God and Man," a lecture on Christian Science, was delivered by William D. Kilpatrick C. S. B., of Detroit, Mich., at the First. Church ot Christ, Scientist, in. Mason City Thursday evening. Mr. Kilpatrick, n member o£ the Board ol Lectureship of the Mother Church, the First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Mass., said in part: Times like the present must give pause to the man who is inclined to think and weigh events in the light of intelligent analysis. One cannot look upon a world torn with strife, war, hatred, and all the baser p a s s i o n s of men, without some contrasting or contradicting emotions. The question is bound to suggest itself to the thoughtful as to just where the onus of guilt must rest for the mortal and moral upheaval which be tearing down and destroying the spiritual and intellectual building of the Christian era. Where, one might ask, does Christianity fit into this picture cf moral desolation? What, in the light of present-day savagery and unrestrained rapine, has the Bible accomplished in the hundreds of years it has been looked upon as a guide and manual for the conduct of Christian men and nations? One might be tempted to question within himself--Is there a God? If so, why all this murderous destruction, this strife between Christian peoples, this cancerous growth, of hate, jealousy, and revenge? These inner questionings of the human consciousness, these doubts which stealthily and insistently I steal into thought, these sugges- I lions of pessimism and skepticism, I are not without justification; and except for the explanation and light which Christian Science throws upon the Bible and the teachings ot the prophets. Jesus, and the apostles, I am doubtful whether a convincing reconciliation of the present with the un'. equivocal promises of Holy Writ ; could be evolved. \ However, through the rovela- ] tion of the spiritual significance- 3 of Bible teachings which Mary 3 Baker Eddy, the Discoverer and i Founder of Christian Science, has given to the world in her book, '·Science and Health with Key to Ihe Scriptures," and other writ- ings, the seeming ambiguities, inconsistencies, and contradictions which present-day conditions emphasize, are explained and all doubts and misunderstandings are replaced with the spiritual conviction and assurance w h i c h comes with the enlightenment thus provided. I am convinced that divine prophecy, expressed through the paces of the Bible from cover to cover, is today being fulfilled not only in the history of the human race but also in the appearance »t this time of Christian Science as a world movement-- as the "Comforter," which Jesus foretold and promised would lead us into all truth. The presence of C h r i s t i a n Science at this juncture in the affairs of men is not merely timely and opportune, but it is God's certain and directed answer to humanity's cry for freedom from doubt, skepticism, fear, and the bondage of hate, mad ambition covetousness, dishonesty, politica intrigue, strife, war, paganism and the anti-Christ of totalitarianism. Christian Science not bnlj gives the student of this fnith full and analytical understanding of present-day events, but it supplies, with no uncertainty o equivocation, the answer to al human questionings and forebod ings. It provides assurance of the eventual fulfillment of God' promises to deliver His peopl from the thralldom of human strife, contention, bitterness, am hate. To those not blessed with th stabilizing and assuring influence with which the study of the Bible in the light of Christian Scienci endows one, the future may seei to hold little of promise or hope but when, through the lens spiritual perception, gained in th study of Christian Science, th mists of strife, struggle and ranco are pierced, there is revealed background of spiritual beaut holiness, and permanence whit nothing can efface.
