My motive and purpose for being a Christian Science practitioner is to help others by healing as Jesus did — based on his teachings as found in the Bible, and as explained and demonstrated through Christian Science — a spiritual system of healing discovered and founded by Mary Baker Eddy in 1866. The practice of this Science has healed, transformed, regenerated, and renewed lives for nearly 150 years.
Jesus' method of healing included no drugs or material methods, nor did he employ material psychology, or "mind over matter." He relied solely on God for the answers to his deep prayers — his "conscientious protests of Truth." See Mrs. Eddy's book, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, page 12:10. This book is the cornerstone of Christian Science. In it, Mrs. Eddy explains how one can learn about his or her complete and perfect spiritual identity through the understanding and demonstration of the allness of God, and the power of His love for His creation. For well over a century, thousands upon thousands have been healed, and have learned how to be spiritual healers, through the study and practice of Christian Science.
Accepting commonly held, limited, worldly beliefs of duality — such as good and evil, sickness and health, life and death, rich and poor, etc. labels man as doomed from the very 'get-go.' Believing that he was born into a material world and is subject to and governed by often frightening matter-based beliefs, holds man in bondage to these very beliefs. And the apparently foregone conclusion for accepting this material life as reality is ultimately a 'dead end.' Christian Science "lifts the veil" on these material lies/beliefs about man and the universe, and utterly anniliates them with its Christianly scientific system of healing — the very Science of Being — setting man free to be the complete and perfect spiritual being he always has been and always will be. What greater joy than this could there possibly be?
