Questions and Answers

The impression prevails among some of those outside of Christian Science that the healing of sickness is all that the Science accomplishes or seeks to accomplish; is this true? or does Science deal also with sin?—An Inquirer.

While healing sickness is an important part of the work of Christian Science, it is the least important. Vastly more so is the destruction of sin. Indeed, sickness, in Science, being the consequence of sin, directly or indirectly, there can be no healing of sickness, in the highest sense, without the healing—destruction—of sin.

While physical regeneration—the renewal of the body—is by no means to be despised, spiritual regeneration—that is, spiritual growth—is the real goal. Yet the same divine Principle cures both sin and sickness. Our text-book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," makes this very plain throughout.
