Questions & Answers

If you are healed, but then fall ill again, does that mean the healing wasn’t complete?

From the October 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Q: If you are ill and are healed, but then fall ill again with the same condition years later, does that mean the healing wasn’t complete the first time?

A: Your earlier healing brought convincing proof that the Christ operates in human consciousness to destroy the belief in illness. You saw, to a solid degree, your link with divine Love as God’s precious child. So let’s reconsider your very important question in this way: Could the healing method of the divine Principle, Love, be incomplete? Could God’s love for you ever be denied its effect? Seen in this way, your answer to the question would be a firm no.

But just as we understand that sickness is a belief, a mortal error, we need to see the aggressive suggestions that would reject Christ-healing. It’s subtle, this thought confronting you that illness has some reason to return. It is just as erroneous as the belief in the illness itself. And it is equally without substance or reality.
