The result of Christian Science put into practice is the destruction of lust and sin. No one can be a true Christian Scientist and indulge in sin, for the teachings of Christian Science demand absolute purity of life and holiness of thought. Mrs. Eddy says, "Christian Science commands man to master the propensities, — to hold hatred in abeyance with kindness, to conquer lust with chastity, revenge with charity, and to overcome deceit with honesty" (Science and Health, p. 405).

Christian Science teaches that salvation is reached only by forsaking sin of every sort and claim. It has come, as did the Saviour of old, to save sinners from sin by bringing to their consciousness a higher and purer understanding of God and His infinite presence and love. Christian Science heals the sick by destroying sin. It is efficacious where all other healing systems fail, because it eradicates lust and malicious thoughts and fear. Mrs. Eddy says, "To cure a bodily ailment, every broken moral law should be taken into account and the error be rebuked" (Ibid., p. 392).
