Healthful Living, Page 53

214. The course professed Christians generally pursue in following fashion, irrespective of health and life, brings upon them a train of evils which they charge back upon Providence, and place arguments in the mouths of infidels wherewith to assail Christianity.—The Health Reformer, November 1, 1870.

215. God is not responsible for the suffering which follows the non-conformity to natural law and moral obligations to him.—The Health Reformer, October 1, 1871, par. 3.

216. Sickness and premature death do not come without a cause.—How to Live, 61.

God not Responsible for Disease

217. When standing by the graves of their children, the afflicted parents look upon their bereavement as a special dispensation of Providence, when by inexcusable ignorance their own course has destroyed the lives of their children. To then charge their death to Providence is blasphemy.—Testimonies for the Church 3:136.

218. They should not charge the result of their own sinful course upon our gracious and merciful Heavenly Father. He doth not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men.—The Health Reformer, January 1, 1873.

219. Mothers are slow to learn that the suffering and death of their children is the result of their own course. They do not become intelligent upon the subject of how to live to prevent disease and premature death. What a thought! Mothers are the murderers of their own children, and are mourning over their death, and are trying hard to be reconciled to Providence, which they think has bereaved them.—The Health Reformer, January 1, 1873.
