Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures - The Essential Work of the Christian Science
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is the most important work of Mary Baker Eddy, founder of The Church of Christ, Scientist. Along with the Bible, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is the central text of the Christian Science religion. Science and Health encapsulates the teachings of Christian Science and Christian Scientists often call it their "textbook."Christian Science develops its theology and its healing method from these simple statements: 1) "God is All-in all." 2) "God is good." 3)"God is Mind, and God is infinite; hence all is Mind." The conclusions are that humans are all perfect spiritual ideas of the one divine Mind, and manifest Spirit, not a material body. The five physical senses, which take no account of Spirit, are the origin of all false beliefs. Adherents of Christian Science claim that sickness is just a belief, not a property of matter. Praying from this standpoint removes the belief and brings healing.
