Why Christian Science is not a cult—7

Editors' Note: From earliest days misrepresentations of Christian Science teachings have been circulated by critics. More recently these have reached a crescendo in a broad-scale attempt to brand Christian Science a "non-Christian cult. " We feel these questions and answers on key points, prepared by the Committee on Publication, will be of interest to our readers and inquirers. We present them in line with the purpose our Leader, Mrs. Eddy, assigned this publication, "to hold guard over Truth, Life, and Love,"The First Church of Christ, Scientist, and Miscellany, p. 353. and in the spirit of her words, "A lie left to itself is not so soon destroyed as it is with the help of truth-telling." Ibid., p. 130.

Question: Mrs. Eddy claimed to be the Discoverer of Christian Science, but many writers repeat that she was actually indebted for it to Phineas P. Quimby.
