Christian Scientists believe in the divinity of Christ, for Christian Science teaches that Christ is the divine idea, inseparable from God, without beginning or ending, which comes to human consciousness destroying the beliefs of sin, disease, and death. Christian Science, however, teaches that there is a distinction between the words "Christ" and "Jesus"; though, as frequently used by religionists, the meaning of these terms is synonymous. Christ is the eternal Truth, the angel of God's presence, which came to the corporeal Jesus—born of Mary—and imbued him with the divine nature. Thus the title "Christ Jesus," bestowed upon the Master, crowned this Godlike man. The student of Christian Science knows that in proportion to his purity and spiritual understanding he also may express the divine nature, and here and now exemplify the presence of Christ, even according to Jesus' promise, "Lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world."
