Series 1 - Lesson 2 - Annotation 17
Is it possible to heal all diseases? Explain.
17. "Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible" (Matt. 19:26). It is possible to heal all diseases for there is only one Presence and Power in the universe, the presence and power of God, the good omnipotent.
A thought or concept that has produced an appearance or condition of disease has used the same power that when used to picture health, can manifest health in the body. It takes no more thought energy, no more mind substance to use this power to produce a desirable experience than it does to produce sickness or disease. If such were not true, then there would be two powers at work instead of a single, infinite one.
Disease is an effect, an appearance, as a result of bondage to some error thought. No one needs to be held in bondage to error beliefs because God created us free-will beings. As one learns to release all error thoughts by denial, and affirms the Truth, then appearances will charge. "Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Rom. 12:2). Diseases are not real, enduring, because God did not create them. They can be changed by building new states of consciousness, thought by thought, producing a consciousness filled with the realization that God is omnipresent life, the one eternal, enduring, unchanging reality, and man as His offspring is heir to that life.
