Christian Science is not merely a school of physical healing. It is a religion—the religion of Jesus—and has no other authority than the Scriptures. It is primitive Christianity in its fulness. It accepts Jesus' teachings and accepts all of them; it believes that his command to heal the sick is just as imperative as the command to preach the gospel; it believes that the promise of the Master, "He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also," is true, and moreover is proving it to a very large degree.

Christian Science teaches that all the commands of Jesus are to be obeyed by all Christians and in all ages. That these commands were not intended, as some contend, for the disciples only, is clearly shown by their instructions given them by Jesus: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, ... teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you." As Christian Science is based upon the teachings of Christ Jesus, it is self-evident that it does not employ any of the agencies of the human mind. It is, therefore, opposed to hypnotism, mesmerism, or suggestion. Christian Science reforms the sinner and heals the sick in the same way that Jesus and his disciples did, and this method always improves the patient spiritually and morally, as well as physically—thus attesting to its divine origin.
