We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

Did They Really Say That?

The scientific fact that man and the universe are evolved from Spirit, and so are spiritual, is as fixed in divine Science as is the proof that mortals gain the sense of health only as they lose the sense of sin and disease.
Mary Baker Eddy  (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p.69.)
I challenge any Christian Scientist to show me one scientist who will agree that it is a “scientific fact” that everything is “evolved from Spirit.”  There isn’t even a scientific fact that evolution ever happened the way Darwinists claim, let alone this sort of evolution!
And just where is the “proof” that we will gain health when we quit thinking of sin and disease as reality?  In the Old Testament God certainly says sin is a reality.  Christ said sin is a reality, as did the authors of all the New Testament.  So who do we trust - Christ or Mary Eddy?  And if disease isn’t a reality, then explain how so many people die of it!  And how did Christ heal people of diseases that didn’t exist?
Christian Science is not Christian, nor is it science!
