Some questions and answers about Christian Science

This is an age of "up-frontness." We seem to know everything about everybody from our neighbors to our movie stars. But somewhere in this swirl of information, and too often misinformation, the most important thing of all gets lost—what the heart keenly feels about the deeper issues of life. People are beginning to recognize that this world rises and falls not so much on the ups and downs of the stock market, or on the personal details that so often fill newspapers, as on what people think about these deeper issues.

In this spirit, the September 2, 1985, issue of the Sentinel carried a series of questions and answers that had actually been asked of Christian Scientists in a variety of settings. We will continue to publish such questions and answers several times a year. Some of these exchanges occurred in talks that Christian Scientists were invited to give to church groups or educational classes. Other material was taken from correspondence between our Church's information office, the Committee on Publication, and various inquirers, as well as from information provided to the media.
