What Every Christian Scientist Should Know

I dedicate these pages to you with open hearts,
guided by love and humility.


After being a dedicated Christian Scientist for over 20 years, I was lifted out of this religion and received the gift of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ. A year ago, I had never heard that Christian Science was not Christian and was a cult.

Friends, the very foundation of Christian Science is not Christian.

What defines a Christian?--Who's to Say? Hear the Word of God: the Bible.

As a sincere, honest student of the Bible, you need to know the facts.

(II Cor 11: 13-15)
For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.

(Mat 7: 21-23)

Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Dive into the Bible. Let it speak to you without the filters of Christian Science. Let God's word speak to you directly.

My prayer is that you will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ.
