Is it not enough to be a Christian? Then why add the term Scientist? Was Jesus anything more than a Christian?

Yes, Jesus was a Scientific Christian, and because of this fact he healed the sick, raised the dead, cleansed the lepers, and cast out demons. There are those to-day who call themselves Christian, who do not obey his command, "Heal the sick," because they do not know how to. Why do they not obey? Because they are not Scientists. Teach these worthy people how to obey. Give them the method of accomplishing the "mighty works." and you furnish the Science lacking. "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker G. Eddy, provides the "one thing thou lackest." You desire to be like Christ. This will teach you, will give to you the method of attaining the Christ. That which explains how, that which unfolds the method of successfully attaining a given result, is a Science. Understanding how to attain the Christ you possess, the Christ Science, or Christian Science. Is it not plain, then, that if one would be like Jesus he must be a Christian Scientist?
