When I first started this blog, I was practically blind with rage and grief at the damage Christian Science beliefs put into practice has had on my family’s lives. As I dredged up more and more, and lost whatever respect I had left, the posts got long and tangled. after this post I am going to start taking smaller chunks of my opinions and presenting them in a brief, condensed form.
When I started this blog, I had not looked at any of the literature about the church from non-church sources, except Arthur Corey’s books, back in the 80’s- with which I could find no fault. I thought they exemplified what a good practitioner should be and still do, but he was too little, too late, and even went up in the same flames as all the other non-conformists before him had –no matter what their merits.
I have since read all the usual books and mentioned them here and there in my posts. I have come to hold what I think is a fairly logical position, which is that
“Christian Science does not work any better than a placebo”
