This is hilarious to me and should be sent out to every Christian Scientist
Many Christian Scientists use prayer as their first choice for treatment over medical treatments such as drugs and surgery. They believe that healing only occurs through complete submission to God.In Christian Science it is not forbidden to seek medical attention, but they believe that those who do have turned their back on their beliefs if they sought medical help. Eddy put this as “if we trust matter, we distrust spirit”.Eddy acknowledged that Christian Science healing could not be used on all occasions, and so there are a number of exceptions such as going to the dentist, fixing broken limbs, and basic surgical procedures. The official stance of the Church of Christ, Scientist is against diagnosing illness.However, numerous claims of healings of near- and far-sightedness, dental problems and broken bones have been reported in the periodicals published by the Church.
