Is Christian Science a cult?
No. It’s a Bible-based religion that follows the teachings of Christ Jesus.
Do you go to doctors?
It’s up to each individual, but the norm is reliance on treatment by prayer in this Christian system of healing.
Can you mix it with drugs?
It’s based on the total power of Spirit, God. A system based on Spirit as the only power can’t usually be mixed with other systems, such as drugs, that are based on matter as a power.
How effective is this system?
It has been remarkably effective for generations. See testimonies in any current Christian Science periodical.
What would you do if you broke your leg?
Some may have a doctor set the bone, but many others have seen bones set and mended by prayer alone.
Is this faith healing?
Not in the popular view of faith healing, nor is it positive thinking, nor self-hypnosis. Of course, Bible-based healing naturally calls for a measure of faith. And yet a science also requires understanding and proof.
