Christian Scientists can agree with our critic in her reminder that "Christianity is not a religion of theory or of opinion, but a religion the essentials of which are historical facts, incontrovertibly attested as any other facts of history." But Christian Science insists that these essentials are complete in the life and teaching of Christ Jesus, and that he alone is the founder of the religion bearing his name.

It is reasonable that Jesus knew and practised the essentials of Christianity and that he gave them in their completeness to the world. Upon these fundamentals the four gospels are in agreement, and these elementary facts are unreservedly accepted by Christian Science and so recorded in its authorized literature. Christian Science however points out that the essence of the scheme of salvation is the spiritual import of the component parts thereof. They therefore turn away from the material and seek the spiritual observance and understanding of what Christ Jesus set forth as the way.
