In our previous lesson, I talked about the fact that it is God’s will to heal, and that healing is part of the atonement. Much more could be said, because even if you accept it and have seen it in the Scriptures, it still raises a lot of questions such as, “If it’s God’s will to heal us, why isn’t everyone healed?” There are many reasons, and I’m just scratching the surface on the things I know. There is a lot of information that I simply am not able to get into here, but if it’s God’s will to heal, I want to address part of why people are not healed. One of the reasons is ignorance. You cannot operate in something you don’t know or understand, and in my own life that certainly was true. I was trained to believe God’s will automatically came to pass, that I had no authority, power, or say-so in it. So through my ignorance, a number of things happened. My dad died when I was twelve-years old and two or three people had died in my presence by the time I was twenty-one. I was praying for all of them to be healed, but I didn’t see healing manifest, not because it wasn’t God’s will, but because of ignorance on my part. Ignorance is a reason why things happen, but it’s not an excuse. It’s like the law of gravity: a person could say, “Well, I didn’t realize that if I walked off a ten-story building it was going to kill me.” You don’t have to realize it to have the full impact of that law to work against you. People are ignorant about some of God’s laws. They don’t know how His healing system works, so ignorance is killing a lot of people.
