What's the difference between Christian Scientists and Scientologists?

I know that the first one is Christian and believe in God, but they sound so similar to Scientology. Singer James Hetfield's mom died of a disease because as a Christian Scientist, she refused treatment saying that God would heal her. That's also how John Travolta's son died since they're Scientologists, and they believed that their son was fine. So are there any differences between these 2 "religions"? VIVA LA RAZA!
