The statement that "the cure of man morally and physically is not Christian Science; it is Christianity," calls for explanation from a Christian Science point of view. To those who understand in a degree the teaching of Christian Science, it is Christianity applied. If Christianity does not "cure man morally and physically," it is not fulfilling its mission. If, on the other hand, man is "cured morally and physically," it must be brought about by a demonstrable understanding, which constitutes knowledge.

If the "knowledge of principles and causes; ascertained truths or facts," which is Webster's definition of the word "science," is applied to the law of cause and effect in Christianity, this application must be scientific, and therefore Christianly scientific. For man to be cured "morally and physically" through the application of Christianity it must be according to the operation of law, the law of cause and effect, which law must be demonstrable, and therefore explainable through the "knowledge of principles and causes; ascertained truths or facts." Jesus said: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil," and he healed all manner of diseases and raised the dead because of his Christianity or scientific application of demonstrable law. He said to his disciples: "All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."
