THE TRUE STIMULUS

Christian Science makes no compromise with alcoholic beverages. Mary Baker Eddy says in "Miscellaneous Writings" (p. 289), "Strong drink is unquestionably an evil, and evil cannot be used temperately: its slightest use is abuse; hence the only temperance is total abstinence."

Total abstinence is not only a moral issue with the Christian Scientist but a spiritually scientific one. He knows that man has no existence apart from his Maker and no energies underived from Him. Christian Science reveals man as divine Mind's spiritual idea and demonstrates the unlimited vitality of goodness and intelligence which man embodies as Life's witness. God's likeness constantly reflects the freshness and spontaneity of infinite Spirit, never needing stimulation or artificial animation, for the natural vigor which he receives from God never diminishes. Man is deeply satisfied and completely energized with the inexhaustible forces of Spirit, forces which know no violent reaction but eternally unfold the expanding action of good.
