The difference between Christianity, as taught and practiced...

The difference between Christianity, as taught and practiced by Jesus, and Oriental metaphysical philosophy is shown in the practical effects produced in the lives of men. The Founder of Christianity was the most practical teacher in the world's history. He was able to prove every statement he made. Christian Science relies on the teachings of Jesus and fulfills his commands, thus proving its identity with early Christianity and its superiority over mere philosophy. For proof of this Christian Scientists invite investigation of many thousands of cases of healing and reformation.

Christian Science fully accepts all that Jesus said about himself and his plan of salvation, even though it does not agree with many of the views thereof which have been taught by Christian theologians. Because of this full acceptance, and as a result thereof, in practice Christian Scientists present to the world the "signs following" mentioned in the sixteenth chapter of Mark.

Christian Science gives the correct Christian teaching about the atonement. It shows that the sinner cannot be reformed by relying upon the vicarious effort of another, but by overcoming sin through divine power. When sin is destroyed in the individual, the atonement (at-one-ment) is demonstrated in the fruits of righteousness. In this, again, results are shown as conclusive.
