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?!?

One disease is no more real than another.  All disease is the result of education, and disease can carry its ill-effects no farther than mortal mind maps out the way.

Mary Baker Eddy, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, p.176

So, if we don't think we have a disease, we will never get it?  If we remain uneducated, we will never have a disease?  So all those people who thought they had influenza in the 1918-1919 pandemic were just imagining they had it, and if they just stopped believing they had it, the flu would go away?

There are people who actually believe this nonsense.  These people put their faith in a false christ and a false god while following the teachings of a false teacher whose teachings have no basis in reality.

How sad it is that the followers of Christian Science - which is neither Christian nor science - will die in their sins all the while thinking that dying is just a false belief.

That's the same twisted thinking of the health/wealth/prosperity crowd... and has the same disastrous consequences. Physically (for those who refuse to get needed medical care) and spiritually (because they refuse needed spiritual care, ie, salvation)!
