Mrs. Eddy tells us that in her search for truth the Bible was her only guide, and in her book, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," there are more than five hundred citations from Scripture. That Christian Science is the same truth taught of Jesus the Christ, is made to appear when we see the same results follow the efforts of its adherents as were cited by Jesus as the test of true discipleship; viz., "The blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached." Christian healing is the outward manifestation of an uplifted and purified consciousness and cannot be classed or confounded with the workings of any "fake." Even of the work of Christ Jesus it was said by the carping critics of his time: "He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils."

Christian Science does not deny the reality of sin, pain, and disease as experiences of mortal existence. However, if the Bible is true (and it is), God is Spirit; He made everything that was made, and without Him was nothing made that was made; He saw everything that He had made, and behold it was "very good;" He made man in His image and likeness; in the image and likeness of God created He man, male and female. He not only created all, but he established laws for the government of all He created, and especially for the welfare of man. These He revealed to His holy prophets and the patriarchs. Now, we do not believe that sin, pain, and disease were any part of that creation just referred to, nor were they comprehended in or provided for in His holy law, the law which Christ Jesus came not to annul, but to fulfil. Had they been of God, or any part of His law, Jesus would not have destroyed them as he did, for he did always those things that pleased the Father.
