Chapter 12—The Influence of Disease Upon the Mind and Morals

Mental Depression

220. A diseased body affects the brain. With the mind we serve the Lord.—Spiritual Gifts Volume 4a, 146.

221. All should guard the senses, lest Satan gain victory over them; for these are the avenues to the soul.—Testimonies for the Church 3:507.

222. The brain nerves which communicate to the entire system are the only medium through which Heaven can communicate to man, and affect his inmost life. Whatever disturbs the circulation of the electric currents in the nervous system, lessens the strength of the vital powers, and the result is a deadening of the sensibilities of the mind.—Testimonies for the Church 2:347.

Moral Insensibility

223. In consequence of the brain's being congested, its nerves lose their healthy action, and take on morbid conditions, making it almost impossible to arouse the moral sensibilities.—The Health Reformer, October 1, 1871.

224. It should ever be kept prominent that the great object to be attained through this channel is not only health, but perfection and the spirit of holiness, which cannot be attained with diseased bodies and minds.—Testimonies for the Church 1:554.

225. Mental and moral power is dependent upon the physical health.—The Health Reformer, November 1, 1871.
