Learning that God has laws of good that operate in our lives has changed my life for the better. It can change yours, too.
Understanding more about the power and presence of these laws is what the practice of Christian Science is all about. Christian Science is a Bible-based system of spiritual healing discovered by 19th century thinker, Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. It is definitely Christian to the core, following the example of both the words and the works of Christ Jesus. A Christian Science healing—a permanent cure, which anyone can experience—is the living proof of Jesus’ words in the Gospel of Luke: “The kingdom of God is within you.”
Christian Science brings to light:
- The allness and goodness of God
- The perfection of man (that’s you and me) as God’s, Spirit’s, image and likeness
- The unity of God and man
- The nothingness of evil, the supposed opposite of God
If you really want to get the whole picture of Christian Science and how it can change your outlook, you’ll want to read Mary Baker Eddy’s book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. It’s the textbook of Christian Science, and it begins with this reassuring promise to the reader: “To those leaning on the sustaining infinite, to-day is big with blessings.”
Perhaps you’d also like to ask some questions about Christian Science, or find out how you can be healed. A Christian Science practitioner is someone who devotes his or her full time to applying the laws of God through prayer. Practitioners have public practices and are happy to answer questions about Christian Science, or offer Christian Science treatment, to anyone—regardless of religion, culture, age, or gender. Christian Science practitioners are self-employed, and charge a daily fee for treatment. Treatment is given as requested by the patient on a day-by-day basis.
