Like the Mormons, the Catholics have plenty of extra biblical works including the Catechism, papal authority, tradition, and scavengers of history. Mormons and the Restored Church say they have apostolic authority as does the New Apostolic Reformation which claim theirs began anew in 2002.
Christian Science with Key to the SCRIPTURES backs up the Bible for those of the Christian Science Faith. Cults all seem to need something plus the Bible. My church uses the Bible alone. For example, examine the scavenger of history Catholics. Their Faith didn’t begin whole in the first century but mine did. In fact the gospel was only in the mind of Jesus until He revealed it to Paul by way of Revelation. In truth, the Apostle Paul began the church movement not Peter. Peter received the keys to stand outside the gates of heaven. Did he ever get in?
The Catholics claim to be the oldest church so if they like numbers Paul wrote 13 books to the 2 books that Peter wrote. Who had the pen of a ready writer? Maybe the Catholics ought to be studying Paul more than Peter and the four verses Mary spoke?
I once knew a man and he was a Christian Scientist. At one time I ministered to prisons and I met this man there. He related to me that his young baby was very ill but that he and his wife did not seek out medical help. Instead they followed the dictates of Christian Science and prayed over the child. The child died and he was sentenced to prison. This is quite common in Christian Science. I had a difficult time comprehending what he had done. He now seems repentant and was leaving Christian science behind.
Have a great video on the hypocrisy regarding the Christian Science Faith. The greatest dangers to the body of Christ today are apostolic Succession and extra biblical revelation. Enjoy the video
Christian Science has Practioners that are trained in prayer. They are usually soft spoken people. In my preparation for this study I actually met a practionerwho seemed more like a psychologist in technique. They are extremely good listeners and empathetic people. The session was for an hour and began and ended with prayer. I really enjoyed my low key hour with this woman.
Christian Science actually have clinics where you can live with people praying for you. I full know the value of prayer in healing. But they do not recommend any medical professionals or the use of medicine. As such, this often occurs. Children receive the same treatments but with no medical treatments by doctors or the use of medicines.Then they die and their parents are charged with second degree murder for not getting medical help for their child.
In my concluding part, some help from scripture.
I know for a fact that Christian Science parents refuse medical treatment for their children opting for prayer instead. When I ministered in prison, I met a man who did not seek medical treatment for his son and his son died. He was a Christian Scientist. He showed no remorse over that decision. Gospel writer Luke was a physician and a good friend of the Apostle Paul. In fact Luke was called The Beloved Physician. This article will help you understand why Christian Science kills the children that God gives them.Christian Science comments are always welcome.
My name is Kent and I’ve just learned that I’ve got a serious disease known as bias. Maybe I’ve learned it from the Democratic Party. I’m not sure. I hope I can share with you today just what I mean. Catholicism is no longer a religion to me. I trained myself to be Catholic and I love using Catholic lingo to support my views such as calling those that don’t agree with me anti-Catholics. I’ve refused to think any other way. The other day I defended the Eucharist by admitting I don’t even know how the wafer and wine are changed. I’m actually ignorant as to how that is done and yet I believe it anyway?I’m afraid I do believe a lot of that. It’s ingrained within and has stifled my discernment. Anything outside the Bible can do that. If the Bible can equip me throughly how can I surpass that? With the wisdom of men that wrote the catechism? I’ve been asking someone to check out catholic beliefs just as Satan does. When the devil speaks a lie he does so BY HIS OWN RESOURCES – John 8:44. The difference is that when he reads catholic propaganda he does so with eyes wide open. Ive heard that called Holy Spirit discernment. The Spirit of truth leads into all truth and how can anyone surpass all truth? With Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures, the Book of Mormon, or the Catechism? Am I really defending a church with these kind of problems and expect anyone to desire such a church?
This is the woman who heard an inner voice that said it was Jesus Christ and over the span of time dictated to and through her by channeling A Course in Miracles. The course, though, contradicts the Jesus of the Bible so the Course is from another Jesus channeling another gospel. Son, you sure don’t mean you want some more of a Course in Miracles? Heavily promoted today by presidential candidate Marianne Williamson and her New Age mentor Oprah Winfrey.The crux of the course is love. There are vague similarities here with Christian Science. There is no heaven and hell in the course which really speaks os a simplistic form of love. If Williamson really believes that try it at the House of Representatives and the US Senate and see how it works? By the way, the way here is not Jesus. The inner voice was no doubt a familiar spirit which gave the Course a wide course in which to operate. If you truly desire a miracle in your life stay far away from A Course in Miracles.
Mary Baker Eddy founded Christian Science, sort of. Actually it was Phineas P. Quimby – A mesmorist and Eddy used much of his writings to build upon her added work called- Science and Health with the Key to the Scriptures. From her mother church in Boston Eddy claimed that no one could properly understand the Bible without this book. Guess who wrote the book? Mary Baker Eddy. As in all things there were some good things that she said. But far more that was wrong. Her teachings told parents that when their children had any illness that doctors and drugs were not needed for sickness was all in the mind.
It was mind over matter. Under her teachings many children died and their parents were sent to prison. Eddy denied the resurrection of Jesus Christ. When members of her faith died they were sort of reincarnated until they overcame all their spiritual problems. WHOEVER TRANSGRESSES AND DOES NOT ABIDE IN THE-DOCTRINE OF CHRIST DOES NOT HAVE God- 2nd John 9. The word transgresses means goes beyond. Eddy used her interpretation of the Bible but said without her standard work no one could understand the Bible. An ironic thing about Eddy was that she herself was sick most of her life. Physician, heal thyself!
I placed this chart in here for one reason. It is incorrect. Catholics don’t solely use the Bible but tradition and the Popes as well.
On her deathbed Eddy told close friend Adam Dickey to say that her enemies mentally murdered her. I guess she missed Jesus saying, Love your enemies?Stay away from Christian Science.
These are Children. They were not molested as another religion habitually does but they faced the ultimate harm and died. They had no say in their execution. Their Christian Science parents opted for prayer over doctors and medicine. That sent their parents to prison. Paul prayed for the removal of his thorn in the flesh. God said it would remain. Galatians indicates that thorn had something to do with his eyes. MY GRACE IS Sufficient for you for you for My strength is made perfect in weakness. Prayer is important in sickness when coupled with Responsibility. That means doctors and medicine. Christian Science needs to understand this and prevent further children from dying due to lack of medical care. Luke was the constant traveling partner with Paul. Luke, the beloved physician.
In my final installment, Christian Science, the Example: The Killing Fields.
Divine Revelation seems to the order of false religions of the 1800s. Jehovahs Witnesses, Mormons, Adventist’s, and Christian Science were popping up. This cult rejects the Triune God. Sin and sickness do not exist. Man is spiritual thus no final judgment for man. Hell is a fantasy. They reject the gospel saying Jesus did not rise from the dead. And, they are known as the mother church. Ironically I find the term mother disgusting as these mothers send their children to the grave.
