COMMON QUESTIONS, MORE THAN ONE ANSWER

The Sentinel asked five teachers of Christian Science to give their perspectives on the following frequently asked questions. We spoke with MAKANGA KIANGA from Kinshasha, Democratic Republic of the Congo; MARIE HELM from Juneau, Alaska; ROBERT ENNEMOSER from Salzburg, Austria; GEORGIA BULLOCH from Houston, Texas; and SUSAN FLEMING from Newport Beach, California.

Makanga Kianga: One paramount purpose of class instruction is to teach pupils how to heal and help others. Students learn what constitutes a Christian Science treatment and how to heal through treatment—in other words, how to pray and make one's prayers more effective. The class opens the students' eyes spiritually and lifts their thought to a fuller understanding of God. They also learn about the nature of evil or animal magnetism, how to discern its falsity, and how to overcome it through prayer, thus defending themselves and others against this foe. They gain a better understanding of the mental nature of sin and disease, and what to do in order to eradicate them.
