I agree completely. CS falls woefully short of the standard established by Jesus (as it is stated in the Bible). I’ve often referred to my favourite definition of insanity: “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” (attributed to Albert Einstein) Based on that, I and many others who stuck with CS were insane, and many remain so–tragically. I think CS practitioners should be held to account for failures. All other professionals are. Why should it be different for practitioners?
Christian Science practitioners pride themselves in using their Leader’s discovery and system, which is based on the original healing method of Christ Jesus.
But please note: All of Jesus’ healings were instant. There was no telling the patient they needed to handle an error before the healing could take place. There was no praying for hours, days, weeks, months and even years with no change in the condition or keeping the prayer up if it got worse. There was no refusal to take a case for moral reasons or for any reason. Jesus never made a second visit; he got it done in the first encounter.
Now that is Christian healing as Jesus did it. He may not have used meds, but he did get the job done. There is no reported case where He failed to heal. And He certainly never criticized people for not using His method.
