On page 497 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"...

On page 497 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy you will find that the first tenet of Christian Science is: "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life." And as to fundamentals, Christian Science accepts, absolutely, all the commands of Christ Jesus, including the oft-neglected one, "Heal the sick." Obviously, healing the sick was a fundamental of Jesus' ministry; and as he said that "no man cometh unto the Father, but by me," it is necessary for us to make it our object to learn how he did his works of healing.

The first chapter of Genesis, together with the first five verses of the second chapter, gives us one account of creation, and the remainder of the second chapter gives us another account. The first of these accounts is spiritual, and the second material. Since God is Spirit, His creation must be spiritual; and this spiritual creation is held, in Christian Science, to include all that is real, eternal.
