“New Thought is a God-centered health-wealth-happiness-producing practice designed to transform your daily living by changing your unconscious assumptions and consciously held beliefs, attitudes, and expectations. We replace “old thoughts” with “new thoughts.”
“Religious Science is a spiritual philosophy for the modern man and woman. It is based on the Truth which arises in every culture in the form of science, philosophy, and religion. Religious Science views religion as a source of wisdom for revealing the Truth about the seemingly unknown forces that shape our universe. This enables us to participate in our own life as a co-creator with the Divine.* Religious Science was founded by Dr. Ernest Holmes, a self-taught philosopher who rigorously studied all of the world’s Spiritual paths for most of his life. In 1927, he wrote The Science of Mind, which synthesized the truths that he discerned were present throughout all of the world’s faiths. That book is the foundation of the principles of Religious Science.
“Ernest Holmes used the terms “Science of Mind”, which he called the book that describes his synthesis of the truths running through all of the religions of the world, and “Religious Science” interchangeably. He believed that religion and science were truly complimentary, and named his organization the Church of Religious Science to show that. He believed that, eventually, science would prove what the mystics have been saying for thousands of years about the nature of God, human beings, and the universe. His beliefs have been borne out by many modern scientists, who have found that the universe is truly made up of energy. Religious Science, along with all of the mystics of the ages, knows that that energy is God.”
