The world needs the discipleship of a practical Christianity which heals disease and overcomes sin. Christian Science supplies it.
Being a disciple of Christ Jesus is being his faithful follower. In order to follow him better we need a better understanding of his teachings. His theology was based upon a spiritually scientific understanding of man's unbroken unity with God, as God's idea—his sonship with the Father. It was the Christ, the true idea of God, that enabled Jesus to prove null and void the so-called laws of negative, mortal mind and matter and to demonstrate the supremacy of God's spiritual law, which heals every ill of the flesh. It is the Christ, God's true idea, that enables us to be present-day disciples.
Mrs. Eddy writes in Science and Health: "Jesus said: 'These signs shall follow them that believe; . . . they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.' Who believes him? He was addressing his disciples, yet he did not say, 'These signs shall follow you,' but them—'them that believe' in all time to come." Science and Health, p. 38;
