The teachings of Christian Science do not include a denial of sin, sickness, and death as a part of the experience of this human material existence. On the contrary, Christian Science teaches the recognition of the need of practically and effectually coping with these disturbers of the peace and harmony of man. In Christian Science these disturbances are necessarily classified differently than in other systems of healing, because of the fact that Christian Science is a religion.

The Principle of Christian Science is God. And as God is Spirit, Christian Science healing is therefore in no sense material, but is a spiritual healing. It results from compliance with God's spiritual laws. It is therefore in no way governed or affected by any material laws. The marvelous instantaneous healing works which Jesus accomplished by means of this same omnipotence of God were performed in accordance with spiritual laws and in direct opposition to laws of matter. Though there is abundant available evidence to satisfy the most skeptical that Christian Science has repeatedly healed every disease which flesh is heir to, it is not claimed that at this time a sufficient understanding of this healing Principle had been attained to meet every case. Christian Scientists are perfectly willing that the record of Christian Science as a healing agency shall be compared with any other healing system.
