THE ONLY ANSWER

It often happens that an explanation is demanded of some of the profounder problems of Christian Science, before its claims in lesser matters are granted. Do Christian Scientists really believe that Jesus walked on the water? Do they think he fed the multitudes with material loaves and fishes? How do they explain the resurrection and ascension? These are some of the questions asked. How shall they be answered?

No one who calls himself a Christian Scientist should be content to accept any statement in regard to this Science simply "on faith," if by faith is meant mere credulity or blind assent to the dogmatic assertion of another. It is on no such ground that our Leader asks allegiance to her teachings, for she plainly says, "A simple statement of Christian Science, if demonstrated by healing, contains the proof of all here said of Christian Science. If one of the statements in this book is true, every one must be true, for not one departs from the stated system and rule" (Science and Health, p. 547). And herein lies the answer we are seeking.
