While it may be true that Jesus did not state specifically that sickness is unreal, it may also be said that he never made the positive assertion that sickness is a reality. What he believed concerning the constituency of matter and the nature of disease, must therefore be determined from his general teaching, and it must be admitted that he never uttered a favorable expression concerning the flesh or matter; he always spoke of it as unprofitable and worthless. It is equally as certain that he regarded disease as the work of the devil and that he insisted that the devil "abode not in the truth" and that "there is no truth in him;" that "he is a liar, and the father of it" and that his offspring — own" — his work or product — is a lie. A lie is not a reality; it is a negation, a falsity, something which pretends to be true or real but is neither true nor real.
