Christian Science teaches that the effect of drugs and food on the human body is the result of the belief attached to them, and that consequently, speaking absolutely, there is no difference between them. The relative force, however, of these beliefs varies very considerably. No one presumably believes that a drug is necessary to existence, but the entire world believes that food is. The Christian Scientist, therefore, who overcomes sickness without the use of medicine merely proves that it is possible to heal without the use of a drug; the Christian Scientist who succeeded in doing without food would have triumphed over death. Paul wrote to the church at Corinth: "The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death." At the same time Christ is the way, and Christ Jesus showed, in the temptation in the wilderness, that man could subsist without food, just as he showed in his ministry of healing that every manner of disease could be destroyed without the help of material means.
