If God causes man to be sick, sickness must be good,
and its opposite, health, must be evil, for all that He
makes is good and will stand forever. If the
transgression of God's law produces sickness, it
is right to be sick; and we cannot if we would, and should
not if we could, annul the decrees of wisdom. It is the
transgression of a belief of mortal mind, not of a law of
matter nor of divine Mind, which causes the belief of
sickness. The remedy is Truth, not matter, - the truth that
disease is unreal.
If sickness is real, it belongs to immortality; if true,
it is a part of Truth. Would you attempt with drugs,
or without, to destroy a quality or condition of Truth?
But if sickness and sin are illusions, the awakening from
this mortal dream, or illusion, will bring us into health,
holiness, and immortality. This awakening is the forever
coming of Christ, the advanced appearing of Truth,
which casts out error and heals the sick. This is the salvation
which comes through God, the divine Principle,
Love, as demonstrated by Jesus.
