Christian Science is absolutely in accord with Christianity as taught and practiced by Christ Jesus and his disciples. It differs from so-called orthodox religion in that it does not separate the command to heal the sick from the command to heal the sinning. It has restored to the world primitive Christian healing, the signs which Jesus declared "shall follow them that believe."

Mrs. Eddy through the study of the Scriptures discovered that the healing works, the evidence that a man is a Christian, are inseparable from the right understanding of God as Principle, operating through an ever available, omnipresent law. Christian Science, as the name implies, is the Science of Christ, Truth, and therefore like all true science is capable of proof. Beliefs are the changeable forms through which a man expresses his particular concept of God. Mrs. Eddy writes in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 341): "In Christian Science mere opinion is valueless. Proof is essential to a due estimate of this subject."

To-day many thoughtful men and women admit that beliefs have been tried and found wanting, and mankind is pleading for a great spiritual reconstruction, for a more practical religion with less dogma and more works. Humanity having passed through the "great tribulation," the conflict for Principle in human affairs, may with confidence look for the establishment of God's kingdom within us, with a new heaven and a new earth. Christian Science has a great message.
