RADIO PROGRAM NO. 322 - "Make you a new heart," Part II

Speaker: Last week you mentioned the interest in heart transplants. In discussing this we spoke of the value that Bible insights have on life and on the relationship of thought and body, and that these insights are as valuable and valid today as they were in the time of Christ Jesus.

We spoke of Jesus' statement (John 10:10), "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." We also referred to what he said about the thought-body relationship.
Questioner: You mentioned that our thinking does affect the body. For instance, as I understand it, one can have fear and tension, and these might develop an ulcer.
Speaker: That our body is pictured or projected thought amounts to a great deal more than simply not being fearful or tense.

The understanding that we were speaking about goes deeper than merely a thought-body relationship. It's based on a God-man relationship. It involves switching thought from man as wholly material and physical, comprised of parts or organs that get out of order, to recognizing man as literally the spiritual image and likeness of God. This new understanding is made manifest in human experience as health.
Questioner: This God-man relationship idea was a little confusing for me. What again does this mean?
