Science and Health with Key the Scriptures,
12 - - Christian Science Practice
The tobacco-user, eating or smoking poison for half a
century, sometimes tells you that the weed preserves
his health, but does this make it so? Does his
assertion prove the use of tobacco to be a salubrious
habit, and man to be the better for it? Such instances
only prove the illusive physical effect of a false
belief, confirming the Scriptural conclusion concerning a
man, "As he thinketh in his heart, so is he."
The movement-cure - pinching and pounding the poor
body, to make it sensibly well when it ought to be insensibly
so - is another medical mistake, resulting from
the common notion that health depends on inert matter
instead of on Mind. Can matter, or what is termed
matter, either feel or act without mind?
