A moral question may hinder the recovery of the sick.
Lurking error, lust, envy, revenge, malice, or hate will
perpetuate or even create the belief in disease. Errors

and more of spiritual.

tramples upon the divine Principle of metaphysics, for God
is the only power. To succeed in healing, you must conquer
your own fears as well as those of your patients, and
rise into higher and holier consciousness.
(True government of man)
If it is found necessary to treat against relapse, know
