A PROBLEM AND ITS SOLUTION

In answer to the question. "Can your Science cure intemperance?" Mary Baker Eddy replies (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 37): "Christian Science lays the axe at the root of the tree. Its antidote for all ills is God, the perfect Mind, which corrects mortal thought, whence cometh all evil." And she continues, "The appetite for alcohol yields to Science as directly and surely as do sickness and sin."

These are compassionate words in an age when the carnal mind, intent upon prolonging its claim to existence in the face of its exposure by Christian Science as a counterfeit, would make every effort to victimize humanity and hold it in the grasp of evil. The increasing despotism of mortal mind in many quarters through the allurement of alcoholic beverages needs the consecrated attention of Christian Scientists, for Science lays the ax at the very root fallacy upon which evil allurement depends. This root is the belief that man possesses physical senses—material consciousness—and that these senses can magnify their stubborn demand for identification through the excitement of the senses.
