Is Christian Science Of The Same Lineage As Spiritualism Or Theosophy?

From No and Yes by

Page 13

         Science is not susceptible of being held as a mere theory.
18    It is hoary with time. It takes hold of eternity, voices the
         infinite, and governs the universe. No greater opposites
         can be conceived of, physically, morally, and spiritually,
21    than Christian Science, spiritualism, and theosophy.<

         Science and Health has effected a revolution in the
         minds of thinkers on the subject of mediumship, and given
24    impulse to reason and revelation, goodness and virtue. A
         theory may be sound in spots, and sparkle like a diamond,
         while other parts of it have no lustre. Christian Science

         ceived, when properly demonstrated. If a spiritualist
3      medium understood the Science of Mind-healing, he
         would know that between those who have and those who
         have not passed the transition called death, there can be
6      no interchange of consciousness, and that all sensible phe-
         nomena are merely subjective states of mortal mind.

         Theosophy is a corruption of Judaism. This corruption
9      had a renewal in the Neoplatonic philosophy; but it sprang
         from the Oriental philosophy of Brahmanism, and blends
         with its magic and enchantments. Theosophy is no more
12    allied to Christian Science than the odor of the upas-tree
         is to the sweet breath of springtide, or the brilliant cor-
         uscations of the northern sky are to solar heat and
15    light.
