By Rev. Sandy & Kirk Moore



Q: My child has a very serious illness and I have always tried to use prayer and non-medical remedies for treating him. I don¹t believe in Western medicine very much, but I am scared and don¹t know what to do. What do you suggest?
Riverside, CA

A: It can take a great deal of courage to resist the prevailing "wisdom" of society when faced with such difficult decisions as the care of an ill child or another loved one. I want to commend you on considering alternatives to what society expects of you.

That said, our philosophy teaches us that God is in everything, including Western medicine and its practitioners. Your child¹s illness may be seen as a sign that some of your beliefs need to be healed/changed. If you are willing to look within and ask for the guidance of your inner knowing, you will receive answers to your questions.

In the words of Dr. Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science, "All disease results from a sense of separation from God." As we open our hearts and minds to the Divine Intelligence of God, we are healed of the false beliefs that underlie all dis-ease and dis-harmony.
