Christian Science

Christian science (The First Church of Christ, Scientist) is neither Christian nor scientific. This religious movement's denial and/or re-interpretation of key Biblical doctrines mark it as, theologically, a cult of Christianity. Nevertheless, in many U.S. states the Federal Government has granted Christian Science religious exemptions which, in the eyes of many, has led to needless suffering and preventable deaths as the church's followers apply its version of 'faith healing.'

Faith Healing

Faith healing refers to healing that occurs supernaturally, as the result of prayer rather than the use of medicines or the involvement of physicians or other conventional medical care.
