To be a Christian Scientist is not merely a matter of belief, it is necessary to know and to prove what one knows, but when once proven nothing can take away the knowledge attained, nor can one be false to it without being false to himself. This knowledge is manifested by living the truth, healing the sick, and overcoming sin. It is only through his understanding of the Bible that one proves his knowledge of Christian Science.

The key-note of Christian Science is the acknowledgment that the real man is the son of God, that as God is Spirit, the true man must be spiritual, and that the image and likeness of God must always have been perfect and always will be. It is the false, evil, and material concept of man, called in the Bible the Adam-man, that never was perfect and never will be, and this concept must die before the true concept is realized. "As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." Jesus died to prove to the world the grand verity that life is eternal; but he lived after the so-called death of his body, and he emphasized this in telling his disciples that he would raise himself again, and also that all who believed on him should never see death.
