BREAKING THE LIE OF LIMITATION

Any manifestation of error— sickness, sin, fear, poverty—is in reality a claim of limitation, a belief that man cannot or does not fully and completely express God. The sick person believes he is limited as to his health; the sinful one accepts the belief that he is limited in his ability to express goodness, purity, and righteousness; the fearful individual thinks he is limited in his faith in God's ability and willingness to protect him; one who is poverty-stricken is held under the claim that he is limited as to his material possessions. In fact, the acceptance of mortality is in itself limitation, which ends in death.

The lie of limitation was first stated by the serpent when, as recorded in the third chapter of Genesis, in urging Eve to partake of the fruit of the forbidden tree this subtle liar said, "Ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." But what really happened? In accepting the false premise that God's child may know both good and evil, mortal man found himself bound with limitation, because he had limited himself to the belief that God, Spirit, is the creator of less than all good.
