Chapter 6—The Consequence of Violating Natural Law

72. Proportionately as nature's laws are transgressed, mind and soul become enfeebled.... Physical suffering of every type is seen.... Suffering must follow this course of action. The vital force of the system cannot bear up under the tax placed upon it, and it finally breaks down.—Unpublished Testimonies, August 30, 1896.

Cause of Sickness

73. Every misuse of any part of our organism is a violation of the law which God designs shall govern us in these matters; and by violating this law, human beings corrupt themselves. Sickness, disease of every kind, ruined constitutions, premature decay, untimely deaths,—these are a result of a violation of nature's laws.—Unpublished Testimonies, August 30, 1896.

74. Sickness is caused by violating the laws of health; it is the result of violating nature's laws.—Testimonies for the Church 3:164.

75. The gloom and despondency supposed to be the result of obedience to God's moral law are often attributable to disregard of physical laws.—The Signs of the Times, June 15, 1882.

Diseased Souls

76. Everything that conflicts with natural law creates a diseased condition of the soul.—The Review and Herald, January 25, 1881.
