These pregnancies damage the fallopian tubes and must be detected and treated early to prevent severe bleeding. One that has ruptured will bleed slowly into the abdomen and is considered a medical emergency. Christian Science accepts the idea that illness is a form of evil and all evil is an illusion. Founder Mary Baker wrote that the only reality of sickness and death are the fact that unrealities seem real to humans until God strips of their disguises (Paloma, 1991, p 340). 85% of Christian scientists believe that God always heals if a person’s faith is high enough and unwavering while only 57% of mainstream Christians have this same viewpoint. There are some noteworthy distinctions to be realized between Christian Science and mainline Christian approaches to healing. These distinctions are essential to recognize and to validate for you to be an active practitioner while also culturally aware of your client’s needs, differences, and possible ways to meet your client at a comfortable decision for both parties. Christian Scientists are known to be much less demonstrative of their religious practices that are mainstream Christians. Christian Science on Trial.
