Jesus’ healing works and the works of the early Christian church are often viewed by traditionalists as miraculous, not explainable, even mystical. A practical and scientific explanation of the power of that prayer was explained and brought to the attention of the modern world by Mary Baker Eddy in 1875 through her most revolutionary and extraordinary Christian work entitled, Science and Health with Key to The Scriptures.
Christian Science presents practical application of the born-again mentality, and explains how living this new mentality can bring joy and health to every aspect of your life, including, but not limited to your physical well-being. Prayer as practiced from this point of view teaches that we can learn to pray just as Jesus did, ”whose humble prayers were deep and conscientious protests of Truth – of man’s likeness to God, of man’s unity with Truth and Love” (Mary Baker Eddy).
So revolutionary, effective, and life-changing were the ideas revealed through Mrs Eddy’s teachings and writings, that the message spread worldwide through the establishment of the Christian Science movement via The First Church of Christ, Scientist in Boston MA and the establishment of branch churches worldwide. Today there are established Christian Science Churches, Societies, and Organizations in virtually every free nation of the world.
The New Physics
Explore with me here in the blog. The beginning of the 20th century marked a turning point for the world, the beginning of the age of the most marvelous advancements in technology ever seen in the recorded history of mankind. Theoretical physics also changed directions in the late 10th century and the early part of 20th century. Modern physicists are also coming to the inescapable conclusion that consciousness plays a deeper role in our interpretations of reality than was ever before realized.
Modern quantum physics and its related experimental evidence has also been leading for many decades to spiritually based conclusions similar to those indicated in Christian Science. Matter and what we know as manifest reality are directly connected to consciousness. On other words, there is truly a science to the Christ.
