Christian Science is founded upon the Scriptures


Christian Science is founded upon the Scriptures. Its teaching regarding the real man is founded upon the statement in the first chapter of Genesis that "God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him." The second chapter of Genesis contains an opposite account, a material view of creation, a false history of a mortal, material man in contradistinction to the true history contained in the first chapter of Genesis.

As Mrs. Eddy has written in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 522): "The first record assigns all might and government to God, and endows man out of God's perfection and power. The second record chronicles man as mutable and mortal,—as having broken away from Deity and as revolving in an orbit of his own."
