Chapter 11—Disease and Providence

209. The violation of physical law, and the consequence, human suffering, have so long prevailed that men and women look upon the present state of sickness, suffering, debility, and premature death as the appointed lot of humanity.—Testimonies for the Church 3:139.

Disease the Result of Natural Causes

210. Many persons complain of Providence because of the discomfort and inconvenience which they suffer, when this is the sure result of their own course. They seem to feel that they are ill-treated of God, when they themselves are alone responsible for the ills which they endure.—The Review and Herald, October 16, 1883.

211. Are these ills visited upon the race through God's providence?—No; they exist because the people have gone contrary to his providence, and still continue rashly to disregard his laws.—The Review and Herald, July 29, 1884.

212. The souls and bodies of people are fast becoming corrupted, a mass of disease. This would not have been the case if those who had claimed to believe the truth had lived out its sacred principles.—Unpublished Testimonies, January 11, 1897.

213. There is a divinely appointed connection between sin and disease. Sin and disease bear to each other the relationship of cause and effect.—Testimonies For The Church 5:444.
