In reply to your correspondent, "Thinker," may I say that the first tenet of Christian Science reads as follows: "As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life" (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 497).

Mrs. Eddy went to Mr. Quimby for treatment and for some time was under his care. It was not until after his passing that she discovered Christian Science and learned that his mesmeric magnetic method of treating disease was a subtle counterfeit of the true, a method at once destructive to health and dangerous to character. Mrs. Eddy's purpose in founding the Church of Christ, Scientist, was "to organize a church designed to commemorate the word and works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing" (Manual of The Mother Church by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 17).
