Health care and regeneration

The Bible shows a strong connection between spiritual regeneration and our physical well-being.

In conjunction with some other duties, I recently attended a seminar devoted to the subject of affordable health care. A panel of legislators and an audience of senior citizens were looking for solutions, sharing intelligent, thoughtful comments and questions. As a Christian Scientist, I found the opportunity prompted me to think more deeply about how one finds really lasting health.

Words from the book of Jeremiah in the Bible came to thought: "I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the Lord" (Jer. 30:17). The spiritual healings recorded in the Bible show that this restoration involves a fuller acceptance of our true heritage as God's spiritual offspring, an increasing rejection of the view of ourselves as mortals, cut off from God, divine Love. It makes demands on us for spiritual regeneration.
