Healing and holiness: why they are inseparable

Health may be what we seek. But holiness is the way we discover our God-given health—and maintain it.

When you've got your health, you've got just about everything." So the saying goes, and there is truth in this sentiment. Genuine health is priceless—something we should never take for granted. But isn't there more to health than just physical well-being? Christian Science teaches that health and holiness are inseparable. Both are essentially spiritual conditions, not originating in the body or dependent upon personal gifts, but freely given to us of God.

In Christian Science we learn, as Jesus taught, that the love bestowed on man by God, his infinitely loving and wise creator, is unconditional. But this Love also demands from the Christian disciple an unconditional response—wholehearted obedience to the spiritual laws of Love, Truth, and Life, which rule out all fear of or obedience to any other so-called power.
