Christian Scientists believe in the divinity of Christ and in the atonement. In reply to the question, "Do I believe in the atonement of Christ?" Mrs. Eddy said: "I do; and this atonement becomes more to me since it includes man's redemption from sickness as well as from sin" (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 96); and in reply to Mark Twain she wrote: "I believe in one Christ, teach one Christ, know of but one Christ. I believe in one incarnation, one Mother Mary. I know I am not that one, and I have never claimed to be" (The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 303). Mary Baker Eddy was a devout and earnest Christian. People of good standing in the city in which she lived have testified to her high character and influence for good, in contradiction to false statements made in regard to her. Christian Science not only heals the sick (in accordance with the practice of the early Christian Church), but gives a deep and satisfying explanation of God and man. In spite of ridicule and misrepresentation, due to musunderstanding, this religion continues to attract sincere seekers for Truth.
