Ethics of Christian Science healing

Radical reliance and the church member

The Church of Christ, Scientist, upholds the standard of original Christian healing, through the actual healing proofs of its members by spiritual means alone. Because of this, people sometimes wonder if a member of The Mother Church who may choose to resort to material means for healing is disciplined by Church action.

The answer is no. Total dependence on prayer and the power of God for healing is a voluntary commitment to the teachings of Christian Science. Christian healing is a sacred, individual privilege, and the steps leading to it do not come from any external monitoring or administrative procedures.
