Spiritual treatment and healing

Christian Science practitioners provide spiritual treatment through prayer that results in healing—which includes the resolution of relationship or financial difficulties, physical cure, and transformed lives. Treatment is based on the Bible and the principles explained in Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures by Mary Baker Eddy, including the idea that there is one, all-good God, who loves and cares for each of us. Christian Science teachers are active practitioners who are also authorized to teach classes on Christian Science.



Working with a Christian Science practitioner

Christian Science practitioners are available full time to help anyone, anywhere, through prayer. They answer questions, too. Feel free to contact a practitioner by phone, email, or written letter. Many have offices where you can meet for an appointment, and most will also visit people in their homes. Christian Science practitioners are professionals and do charge for the treatment they provide. Each practitioner sets individual rates, so feel free to discuss payment with any practitioner you contact.

Everybody looks so happy on the Christian Science Website.

I am setting up shop. Anybody need prayer for a small fee? and you can write it off on your taxes?







Religion Kills !!!

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.
