From the December 1888 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Broadly defined, Christian Science is the living, the bringing out in practical demonstration, of the Christlife. Christian Science does away with the doctrine of a vicarious atonement, in so far as it discards the commonly accepted doctrine that the shedding of Jesus' blood on the cross paid the penalty of man's transgression, without work or effort of man's own.
