Your Questions & Answers

Following the example set by the question-and-answer columns in the early  Journals, when Mary Baker Eddy was Editor, this column will respond to general queries from Journal readers with responses from Journal readers. You’ll find information at the end of the column about how to submit questions. Readers are also encouraged to go to Chapter III of Miscellaneous Writings 1883–1896, by Mary Baker Eddy — “Questions and Answers.”

Is there an embrace of other means to enlightenment in Christian Science?

From the May 2012 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Q: A poll from The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, reported in the Christian Science Sentinel, cited a trend: that a majority of individuals who are part of a religious tradition feel there are other means than theirs to enlightenment (see Christian Science Sentinel, “Faiths in America—Diverse But Tolerant,” July 21 & 28, 2008, p. 4).
