One of the evidence that Christian Science is the reinstatement of primitive Christianity is that the treatment by the clergy accorded Mrs. Eddy and the healing religion she established, coincides with the attitude of the priesthood of the time towards Christ Jesus. Referring to this carnal mind tendency on page 55 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures," Mrs. Eddy says: "Perhaps the early Christian era did Jesus no more injustice than the later centuries have bestowed upon the healing Christ and spiritual idea of being. Now that the gospel of healing is again preached by the wayside, does not the pulpit sometimes scorn it? But that curative mission, which presents the Saviour in a clearer light than mere words can possibly do, cannot be left out of Christianity, although it is again ruled out of the synagogue."

The denomination of Christian Science as unchristian by an opponent is undeniably refuted by the Christian works accomplished by means of the applied understanding of Christian Science. Jesus said, "By their fruits ye shall know them." The fruits of Christian Science practice are in strict accord with the promises and commands of Christ Jesus, and are to be noted in the healing of sickness, the comforting of the sorrowing, the liberating of the sin-bound, and in spiritual awakenting and regeneration. Christian Scientists ask, in the words of their Master, "For which of those works do ye stone me?" An unbiased study of the Christian Science textbook, in conjunction with the Bible, reveals the fact that Christian Science precepts are as consistently Christian as is its practice.
