I heard that Christian Science is a cult — true?
How come you’re always writing “Spirit” when referring to God rather than “Jesus”?
Do you go to church?
I’m glad you asked these questions!
- No Christian Science is not a cult. Why? Cults generally worship a person or a person’s personality. Christian Science teaches students to only worship God alone, and to follow Jesus in how he worshiped and adored One God—through prayer and the practice of Christian healing — healing one’s self and others through God’s power.
- I refer to God as Spirit because Spirit is a name for God used often throughout the New Testament. I also refer to Spirit because it signifies, most fully, that God is infinite, incorporeal, and is only known spiritually.
- Yes, I do! I love going to church. I go to The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.
