Immunity

Research is showing a modern phenomenon. The body’s immune system is acting out.

Basically, the immune system needs healthy activity. It needs to fight off enemies. A dog needs to walk or run. But, today’s society is keen to be clean. Almost sterile. The absence of germs and bacteria tempt the immune system to act out. The immune system can overreact or turn on the body itself.

The phenomenon is the extreme opposite of plagues induced by filthy conditions in which the immune system can’t keep up with the enemies.

I look at it from a mental standpoint. Let’s say we keep our mind clean, really clean. We have no negative thoughts. And, then we wonder why this sweet pure mind gets attacked by Alzheimer, a disease, or intellectual and moral idiocy.

An immune system is part of our human framework. By staying away from negative thoughts, the immune system has too little to do and starts looking for other targets.  It can attack some of the good thoughts that lead to progress.

From 21st Century Science and Health, “Entire immunity from the belief in sin, suffering, and death may not be reached at this level, but we may expect a decrease in these evils; and this scientific beginning is in the right direction.”

It is not practical to make tremendous effort to have a positive, spiritual mind. We have not ascended. We have the immune system built to face up to negative thoughts and, with Love, God, destroy them.

“I call upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, and I am saved from my enemies.” Ps. 18:3, ESV

On the offense team
The cliché, “The best defense is a good offense,” makes sense even to non-sports people like me. It can be applied to ball games, military combat, and I believe, it can be applied to religion. Too much defense and there is a lack of vision ...
