RADIO PROGRAM No. 106 - Disease Is Not Incurable

HOST: Throughout the world, massive efforts are being made to conquer disease and suffering. People live in fear of diseases they believe are incurable and others have been condemned to suffer such conditions.

INTERVIEWER: Mankind has seen some forms of suffering lessened or eliminated, but at the same time it appears that other new forms of disease have evolved. In his book, '"The Life We Prize," Elton True-blood wrote, "We do our very best to overcome illness and disease, but these are still with us and may be, in one form or another, to the end." (Copyright, 1951, by Harper and Row, Publishers, Incorporated, New York, N. Y.) What about this?

SPEAKER: This raises the question whether incurability will be with us forever. I can't reconcile this with the view of God as the great Physician. In the Bible, the Psalmist speaks of God as one "who healeth all thy diseases" (Ps. 103: 3). He is described as all-powerful divine Love, to whom nothing is impossible.
