Appetites to be abandoned
If a man is an inebriate, a slave to tobacco, or the special
servant of any one of the myriad forms of sin, meet and
destroy these errors with the truth of being, -
by exhibiting to the wrong-doer the suffering
which his submission to such habits brings, and by convincing
him that there is no real pleasure in false
appetites. A corrupt mind is manifested in a corrupt body.
Lust, malice, and all sorts of evil are diseased beliefs, and
you can destroy them only by destroying the wicked
motives which produce them. If the evil is over in the
repentant mortal mind, while its effects still remain on the
individual, you can remove this disorder as God's law is
fulfilled and reformation cancels the crime. The healthy
sinner is the hardened sinner.
