Truth Is Instantaneous

Why should mankind accept the dictum that an accident, such as a broken bone, can occur so quickly, or that the evidence of a contagious disease can appear so suddenly, but that in either case healing must take a long time?

Who made such laws? Christ Jesus never recognized them. When faced with a sick or maimed man, the Master frequently demanded that the evil spirit come out of the sufferer. He got to the root of the trouble, and for that reason his healings were, as a rule, instantaneous. Jesus exposed the lie but never yielded any power to it. Referring specifically to the devil, he said, "When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it." John 8:44;

If the Master gave no power to a lie, why should we? He requires us to follow him. Why, therefore, temporize with error, a lie? Is it not blasphemy to believe that error can strike quickly but that a long time is required for God to heal?
