Chapter 6 - - Science, Theology, Medicine 


 Drugs and divinity



Material medicine substitutes drugs for the power of God-even the might of Mind-to heal the body. Scholasticism clings for salvation to the person, instead of to the divine Principle, of the man Jesus; and his Science, the curative agent of God, is silenced. Why? Because truth divests material drugs of their imaginary power, and clothes Spirit with supremacy. Science is the "stranger that is within thy gates," remembered not, even when its elevating effects practically prove its divine origin and efficacy.
