There is nothing spurious about Christian Science. It is as demonstrable as mathematics; for it is based on divine Principle, and "its rules demonstrate its Science," as we read in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 111). Would our critic question for a moment the healing of Christ Jesus and his followers? Surely he used the method which God, his Father, intended him to use, and to become universal. Has humanity discovered a better way of overcoming the sins and diseases of mankind than that demonstrated by Christ Jesus and his disciples? If not, why does not humanity adopt his method, since it is the best and most successful that has ever been presented to mankind?

Christian Science healing is the result of spiritual understanding. When Jesus said, "Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free," he gave the recipe for all healing work. It depended on knowing the truth—the spiritual truth, there being no material truth. All that is the manifestation of Spirit, God, is spiritual, eternal, immortal, and immutable; therefore, the truth which Jesus referred to must express these qualities. Now, sin and disease are not spiritual, eternal, immortal, nor immutable—they are not a manifestation of Truth, which we are told will make men free. They must be seen as temporal falsities, which the spiritual understanding of eternal Truth destroys.
