Health: for physical body and economic system

When the physical body is uncomfortable, people usually do something about it—at least they ought to. The Christian Scientist does something about it, but what he does is within a spiritual rather than a material context. If his body feels unhealthy, the solution is found through his worship of God, Spirit.

A Christian Scientist begins his treatment—his spiritual reasoning—with a conviction that man is derived from Spirit instead of matter, and that because true health is upheld by omnipotent Spirit it can never be disrupted. His prayer rests on this basis; he sees God, Spirit, as perfect. And he accepts the Bible-revealed truth that, from an inspired and accurate standpoint, man is Spirit's likeness.
