The Science of Christianity

Ever since I was a little girl, I have appreciated the scientific nature of Christianity through my study of Christian Science. I enjoy sharing and exploring this point with audiences in this lecture.

I so loved this logical approach to problem-solving that I majored in meteorology and computer science in college and worked for 20 years in different areas of applied physical science. This lecture points out the similarities and the differences between my study of physical science and my study of Christian Science.

The lecture also explores one of the laws of God that is ever-present and ever-operating: “God is Love.” That law comes from the book of First John in the Bible. The lecture includes several examples of healing which illustrate how the law of God as Love is relevant and practical today.

Practicing Christian Healing Today

What do you think of when you hear the word Christianity? For some today, Christianity may have negative connotations, or perhaps provoke something other than an entirely positive response. But the Christianity I know—the Christianity I understand that Christ Jesus taught—is a vital, crucial agent for healing in the world.

My heart yearns for people to know what Christianity truly means: To me, it’s so about love. And there is no better example in human history of genuine, unconditional love—and its healing effect—than Christ Jesus’ own life. The love he taught and demonstrated actually transformed lives—so it must have been more than mere sympathy or kindness. It must have been the inspiration of divine Love, God, that enabled him to embrace each individual as the beloved child of God.

Living Christianity is about how we can do the same—how Jesus himself expected us to do the same. He taught that those who followed him by living and loving according to his teachings could heal as he did. And he left us with the promise that spiritual healing is possible for everyone to experience and practice.

At the heart of this healing is love—the true vision of our neighbor which flows from God, Love itself. In this lecture, I’ll share how this love impels us to go beyond our preconceived notions and discover more of each individual’s God-derived nature in order to help others. I’ll also discuss some other ideas basic to Christian Science—which is founded on Jesus’ words and works—that allow any of us to heal and be healed.

My hope is that you’ll be able to walk away from this lecture with the essence of true Christianity in your own heart: love that reforms, transforms, and heals.

A new view of God and its effect on well-being

Phillip Hockley

A free lecture by Phillip Hockley of St. Louis, a member of the Christian Science Board of Lectureship.

Thursday, April 4, 2019 7:30 PM
Museum of Biblical Arts
7500 Park Lane
Dallas, TX 75225

“When most people think about life-changing moments, they may not think of a lecture on Christian Science. That wasn’t why I attended a lecture for the first time; I didn’t expect to walk out a new person. But I found something in that lecture that was indeed life-transforming. Christian Science gave me a new view of God that I’d not had before: a view of God as Love itself, divine Love that loved me fully. I also discovered that this loving God was not the source of my troubles (which were many) but the solution to them. My life began to improve quickly after that and I became a healthy man after many years of suffering.

“There’s no question that I was jubilant about the way my life was being transformed. But what impressed me the most was finding out that these kinds of breakthroughs aren’t one-time, personal miracles. God’s love is available to everyone, and there’s even a textbook on Christian Science healing that explains the power of God’s love in our lives: Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures

“What I’ve gone on to learn, and what I’ll share in my lecture, is that the perspective of God and reality that Christian Science opens up is one that offers freedom from whatever in our lives seems painful, debilitating, or limiting. I’ll talk about a 19th-century woman, Mary Baker Eddy, who, after a life-threatening injury, discovered this new view of God for herself and went on to explain her discovery and its Bible-based principles in her book Science and Health. And I’ll share how that discovery is still relevant to our lives today because of what it reveals about God’s great love for each of us and its powerful, life-transforming effects. “

Finding God, Finding Health

Michelle Nanouche, CSB

First Church of Christ, Scientist in Jenkintown, PA is presenting a live web lecture by Michelle Nanouche.

March 10
3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM Central

No one is, or can be, cut off from or left out of the divine presence.  The unique revelation of God’s full nature, as explained by Christian Science, unlocks the potential in us to not just survive, but to thrive.

This lecture presents facts of the life of Mary Baker Eddy that bring out her role as a Christian healer from her youth, up to, and after her discovery of the explanation in Christian Science of how such healing happens.  It responds to common questions about Christian Science and its practice:

  • How does an understanding of God result in healing?
  • What is God, really?
  • How does one find God?
  • Can finding God through prayer result in physical cure?

After a 40-minute live webcast presentation, the discussion is open for questions and answers with web-audience participation.  The webinar lasts one hour.
