Resolution 59

Spiritualism, Christian Science, Theosophy - Christian Science

The Conference finds that while Christian Science fixes attention on the supremacy of the spirit, yet in the teaching given there is a direct tendency (a) to pantheistic doctrine, and at the same time (b) to a false antithesis between spirit and matter, and (c) to the denial of the reality of sin, and (d) to the denial of the reality of disease and suffering. Such teaching, therefore, cannot be reconciled with the fundamental truths of the Christian faith and the teaching of Scripture on atonement, penitence, forgiveness, and fellowship in the sufferings of Christ.
