The First Church of Christ, Scientist

Articles   Multi Media   News Database   Sites   

Christian Science -- official name: The Church of Christ, Scientist -- is neither science, nor Christian.

Founder Mary Baker Eddy (1821 - 1910) believed that sickness is an illusion that can be corrected by prayer alone. The Bible does not teach that. (See: Faith healing)

Christian Science rejects and/or redefines key doctrines of the Christian faith, inclucing those on the trinity and on the deity of Christ.

This means that though the movement claims to be a return to early Christianity, Christian Science is theologically a cult of Christianity.
