Who says you have to be sick?

Before I took up the study of Christian Science in the early 1960s, I was a patient at UCLA Medical Center. After X-rays and an examination, the doctors told me that because of my having a history of tuberculosis, a cold could become fatal for me. Except for the memory of a very bad cough at the age of 12, I had no knowledge that I’d ever had such a condition. 

Later, through my study of Christian Science, I learned that even when a history of illness or turmoil presents itself or persists, it must fall because it is unjust—it has no spiritual foundation behind it. God is just, a loving Father and Mother to His/Her creation. It simply isn’t in divine Love’s nature to inflict suffering, and it isn’t included in God’s intent for us. In fact, there isn’t a label that can be put on you that God’s love can’t remove.
