FAQS

Is Christian Science related to Scientology?     Not in any way.

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.

Is this faith healing?      Not in the popular view of faith healing, nor is it positive thinking, nor self-hypnosis.  Bible-based healing naturally calls for a measure of faith, and yet a science also requires understanding and proof.

Where can I learn more of what you teach about heaven and hell, atonement, baptism, communion, Christ Jesus, and other theological questions?      Science and Health fully addresses them. You can also explore ChristianScience.com, visit a Christian Science Reading Room, or attend a church service.  Also, check out our pages About Christian Science and Online Resources for more links to information.
