We all have scriptural Truth (capitalized because it refers to God) buried within the depths of our being.
We catch glimpses of the Truth at odd moments, not recognizing what it is. We often feel there is something more in life that we’re missing. We’ll ponder a profound thought to grasp its inner meaning. We sometimes wonder about the nature of deep spiritual things. Sound familiar?
The reason scriptural Truth eludes us is we have not opened ourselves up to receive it on a continuing basis. It should be a constant awareness. It is our very life itself!

The medical profession will tell us we need to get rid of pounds, or too much time in the sun! There seems to always be a ‘theory’.
Let’s take a look at this “thing”, this “physical problem” that may need healing. If we examine ourselves, we may find we believe the words, “The body is the temple of the living God”. But upon closer examination, we discover we neither know what the “body” is nor what the “living God” is.
We have been taught there are 2 powers – good and evil, and that we have either good health or poor health. Continue reading
