Question: How can anything calling itself Christian be considered science?
Answer: The Bible advises us, “Come, let us reason together” Isaiah 1:18. God, as creator knows His creation thoroughly, understanding and maintaining it precisely. So God, to start with, must be the supreme Scientist and taught His Divine Science to Christ Jesus who overthrew the material sciences in his healing work and ministry.
When we consider the variety of Jesus miracles, it seems that his work reversed just about every physical or material law of the sciences into “not true.” Healing the man blind from birth, he dissuaded the laws of heredity; healing the lepers, laws of biology; changing the water into wine, laws of chemistry; healing the withered hand, laws of physiology; taking money from the fishes mouth and feeding the multitudes, laws of economics; healing the insane man, laws of psychology; healing the lame, laws of anatomy; walking on the water, laws of gravity; stilling the storm, laws of meteorology; when he announced that the fields were already white and ready for reaping, laws of agriculture; and so on. We know only a small handful of the physical laws that he overturned; but if such laws were overturned by Christ Jesus, and we believe in his works and words and follow his instructions as faithfully as we can, then why not call it Christian Science?
