Christian Science

Christian Science is defined by its Discoverer and Founder:
‘As the law of God, the law of good, interpreting and demonstrating the divine Principle and rule of universal harmony.’ (Rudimental Divine Science p. 1:1-4)
It has its origin in the Bible and re-establishes ‘original Christianity and its lost element of healing’ and is based on the life and teachings of Christ Jesus and  ‘derives its sanction from the Bible.'(Church Manual 17:10)
The Bible, together with a Textbook entitled Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures are the Pastor of the Christian Science Church, and together explain the  science of original spiritual healing illustrated throughout the Bible and which is still being practiced in bringing about healing in every aspect of life today.

Rise Above the Turbulence!

From the July 13, 1974 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

Occasionally when traveling by air, we may have heard the voice of a stewardess over the microphone: “Ladies and gentlemen, we are experiencing a little air turbulence. Would you please return to your seats and fasten your seat belts.” Then the pilot, skilled in his knowledge of aviation and weather conditions, has flown the plane higher, out of the area of turbulence into a more peaceful atmosphere.
Gratitude, even in unsettling times 

 – Sentinel Radio 2002

Gratitude has broken down stagnation, opened up new direction in people’s lives, and brought healing. Hear what these people have to say.  

‘The secret place of the most High’

-Psalm 91:1

From the June 25th, 2018 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

In consciousness at one with God
we find this holy place
a place where we’re not limited
by person, time, or space.

‘The Government shall be upon his shoulder’

By Jill Gooding

From the January 30th, 2017 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

­—Isaiah 9:6

The promise given long ago
is still intact today,
the promise of a government
that holds eternal sway.

“The government shall be” it says,
“upon his shoulder”—strong—
a government that’s “Wonderful,”
that banishes all wrong.

Christian Science Spiritual Healing

‘Christian Science has been successfully practiced around the world for more than 125 years. In 1875 Mary Baker Eddy published Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures to provide a full explanation of Christian Science, or as she termed it ‘the scientific system of divine healing.’
As a Christian Science practitioner, I help individuals dealing with physical illness, mental difficulties, emotional issues, relationship problems, financial or career challenges. No problem, is unresponsive to the power of prayer. Jill’s healing practice includes patients of diverse faith traditions, as well as those with no faith tradition. Christian Science is accessible to all. It meets the needs of any honest seeker. ‘God is universal; confined to no spot, defined by no dogma, appropriated by no sect. Not more to one than to all, is God demonstrable as divine Life, Truth, and Love; and His people are they that reflect Him — that reflect Love.’ (Mary Baker Eddy)

Christian Science Treatment
The purpose of prayerful treatment in Christian Science is to help individuals find the harmony, health, joy and accomplishment that are inherently theirs, to remove impositions and limitations on their lives that may have built up unchallenged, and to restore health, peace, and confidence.
Treatment does not involve physical contact, drugs or counselling, however it will probably include a discussion of the general challenge being faced. Treatment involves the specific application of spiritual Truth to a claim of illness, discord or limitation. Because God is the only healer, the Practitioner simply affirms God’s control. Personal proximity between Practitioner and patient is not essential, and in fact, absent treatment is the norm. ‘I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.’ Jesus
The Practitioner’s prayerful treatment reinforces the patient’s own prayers to re-establish harmony, restore loss, redeem moral soundness, renew and refresh life and health.
Human wisdom is not equal to divine Mind. So the Christian Science Practitioner does not humanly advise or attempt to guide the patient, but simply to open thought to the divine realities of being. “The genuine Christian Scientist is adding to his patient’s mental and moral power, and is increasing his patient’s spirituality while restoring him physically through divine Love.” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, p. 375.
God prepares the hearts of both patient and Practitioner and brings them together for His good purpose. “No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: And they shall be all taught of God.” (Jesus)
The effect of treatment is to change the basis of thought to a spiritual one which destroys fear and dissolves the material problem. “The effect of this Science is to stir the human mind to a change of base, on which it may yield to the harmony of the divine Mind.” Science and Health, p. 162.
