Ms. Eddy claims Science and Health with Key to the Scripture was divinely inspired and that her only source was the Bible (see below). With that in mind, I will now inform you that the passages below come from the following sources: Science and Health by Mary Baker Eddy Quimby Manuscript by Horatio Dresser The Leiber … Continue reading Ms. Eddy’s Inspiration (round 1)
While Buddhists focus on the Rights of the Noble Eightfold Path, Christian Scientists focus on things like “the right hand soap,” the “right Sunday School teacher” and the “right” dictionary. Yes, the right dictionary. You might think all dictionaries are the same, but you’d be wrong. If you’re a good Christian Scientist you spend a … Continue reading the Right Dictionary, what is Love?
It has been four months since I sent in my letter officially resigning from the Mother Church (see Parts 1, 2 and 3 if you are curious). When I printed out my letter, my husband found it and asked if I could change up the information and print one out for him too.

I did a lot of exploring and questioning, which is of the lovely, and often problematic, things about Christian Science: … Continue reading Final Generation 2

The committee was given access to Mrs. Eddy's private correspondence, and published writings. After five years and 57 typewritten pages, the Board of Directors published … Continue reading Ms. Eddy as the Woman in Revelation

She begins with a … Continue reading human fabrication & “true” Christian Science
