Britannica Concise

Religious denomination founded in the U.S. in 1879 by M. B. Eddy. Like other Christian sects, Christian Science subscribes to an omnipotent God and the authority (but not inerrancy) of the Bible, and takes the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus as essential to human redemption. It departs from traditional Christianity in considering Jesus divine but not a deity and in regarding creation as wholly spiritual. Sin denies God's sovereignty by claiming that life derives from matter. Spiritual cure of disease is a necessary element of redemption from the flesh. Most members refuse medical help for disease, and members engaged in the full-time healing ministry are called Christian Science practitioners. Elected readers lead Sunday services based on readings from the Bible and Eddy's Science and Health. See also New Thought.
