What Defines Christian Science?

Christian Science, much more than any other Christian church, is defined by its healing ministry.

Jesus came into this world not to condemn the world but to save men from sin, disease, and

death; and Christian Science is obeying His command to heal all manner of discord. Speaking to

His immediate disciples and all who believe in Him for all times He said: Behold I give unto you

the power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing

shall by any means hurt you. Lk 10:19.

Then why are the Christian churches not healing the way the early disciples did? Simply because

they have not met the requirements; they lack the spiritual understanding and growth that is a

prerequisite to healing. Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, discovered the science of healing in the

Bible: through spiritual reasoning, revelation, and demonstration, she has tested this science and

has shared it with the world in her textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.Only

in this textbook is the complete explanation of the healing principle laid out for all to learn and


What Jesus gave His disciples was spiritual knowledge, the true understanding of God, man, and

the universe. Christian Science is here to remind us of the spiritual truths that heal in the name

of Jesus Christ. There is no problem too small or too big to solve, and if one is unable to work out

a problem there are people in the church, practitioners, who devote their whole lives to

healing. If there is one thing Christian Science has taught the writer is that God is truly a

present help in trouble. He can attest to the fact that God will heal the sick through man

whenever man is governed by God, as our leader says.
