The Christian Science textbooks...

The Christian Science textbooks, the Bible and "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy, were in my possession during my service in the Navy in World War II. I remember reading a few passages from Science and Health concerning smoking and drinking, and I went to Christian Science church services which were held for the naval personnel. However, I felt I could never succeed in giving up the drinking and smoking habits, although I had tried several times. I did not understand that Christian Science could heal me of them; so I did not continue to read the textbook or attend services.

In 1950, about five years after my honorable discharge from the Navy, I was still in bondage to both false appetities when I was interviewed by a Christian Science practitioner for a position. During the interview she stated that one could rely on God for healing in every case. I left her office feeling that her stand was too extreme.
