Six “Important Points” of Christian Science Theology
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy summarizes the theology of Christian Science in six “important points, or religious tenets” (p. 497). Over the six issues that began with June, each Journal lead article will explore in depth one of these six tenets, this month focusing on the fourth tenet.
By ending the series with the first tenet—“As adherents of Truth, we take the inspired Word of the Bible as our sufficient guide to eternal Life”—the series’ “last chapter” will coincide with November’s celebration of National Bible Week in the United States.
