What does Religious Science teach?

In its practice and teaching, Religious Science endeavors to include the whole life. It is not a dreamy, mystical cult, but the exponent of a vigorous message which is applicable to the everyday needs of mankind: CHANGE YOUR THINKING TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

The conventional idea of a future life, with its teachings of rewards and punishment, is not stressed; the message is good news for the here and now. Religious Science says that religion, if it means anything, means right living, and right living and right thinking wait upon no future, but bestow their rewards in this world - in better health, happier homes, and all that makes for a well-balanced, normal life. Discover how you can make the most of your potential. Learn to use your innate creative ability to realize all your goals. Make your life an exciting adventure.

Does the Science of Mind believe in heaven and hell?

Heaven and hell are states of mind. We need not die to get to heaven; but rather behold that kingdom of God within us now. This is what it means to live in heaven. Hell is just the experience of a sense of separation from God, Life, Good, brought on by self-judgment, guilt, superstition and the failure to behold that presence of God within us, working through us, as us now.

Does Science of Mind believe in good and evil?

No! We believe in good only; for we believe in God only. Good is the experience of God in some form. What we call "evil" is the lack of good: a lack of the experience of good, a lack of the awareness of good, a lack of the expression of good. Just as darkness is nothing but the experience of lack of light, evil too is nothing but the experience of lack and deprivation. There is no "evil force", but it is possible for us to repress the good by refusing to express the God that is within us. We call the results of such repression evil.

Changing Your Life

"To learn how to think is to learn how to live."

"If you will take time daily to sense the presence of Life within you, to believe in it, to accept it, ...undesirable experiences which you have known will gradually disappear and something new will be born, a bigger, better, and more perfect you. You will pass from lack and want into a greater freedom, from fear into faith. From a sense of being alone, you will pass into the realization of oneness with everything, and you will rejoice." -Ernest Holmes
