Christian Science is based on the words and works of Christ Jesus.
“The vital part, the heart and soul of Christian Science is Love.” –Mary Baker Eddy
Christian Science is based on the words and works of Jesus Christ, and the Holy Bible is our guide. Jesus said, “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
What Mary Baker Eddy, discover and founder of Christian Science, says about her discovery…
“In the year 1866, I discovered the Christ Science or divine laws of Life, Truth, and Love, and named my discovery Christian Science.” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 107:1-3
“For three years after my discovery, I sought the solution of this problem of Mind-healing, searched the Scriptures and read little else, kept aloof from society, and devoted time and energies to discovering a positive rule. The search was sweet, calm, and buoyant with hope, not selfish nor depressing. I knew the Principle of all harmonious Mind-action to be God, and that cures were produced in primitive Christian healing by holy, uplifting faith; but I must know the Science of this healing, and I won my way to absolute conclusions through divine revelation, reason, and demonstration.” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 109: 11-22
“The revelation consists of two parts:
- The discovery of this divine Science of Mind-healing, through a spiritual sense of the Scriptures and through the teachings of the Comforter, as promised by the Master.
- The proof, by present demonstration, that the so-called miracles of Jesus did not specially belong to a dispensation now ended, but that they illustrated an ever-operative divine Principle. The operation of this Principle indicates the eternality of the scientific order and continuity of being.” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 123: 19-29
“His (Jesus’) proof of Christianity was no form or system of religion and worship, but Christian Science, working out the harmony of Life and Love.” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures 26:30-32
