Why Christian Science is not a cult—1

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.

Christian Science is sometimes attacked in the name of Christianity itself—especially by groups who hold to a very literal understanding of Scripture and label as unchristian those who do not agree with their doctrines.
