N this, the judge said: “I praise your zeal, and you are

happy in your well-founded conviction. And if your Lord

and God would also show me the mercy that He showed

to you and your 2 companions, I certainly would speak the same

words. But since we are now talking about this matter anyway, I

just want to attract your attention on something.

[2] Look, your almighty Helper is – as far as His body is

concerned – also a human being in whom much supernatural

power resides which we cannot grasp, and which lived also before

in the human being Moses, who was a foster child of a pharaoh,

and which then also lived in many other prophets, as this is known

to us from the Scripture of the Jews.

[3] All these exceptional men also performed great things and

signs. Nevertheless, as far as their body is concerned, they all died.

Whereto their souls have gone, no living being knows now with

absolute certainty. It is believed indeed, for many valid logical

reasons that the souls of many very great and virtuous men live on

forever in a happy spiritual kingdom and that very pious men also

associated oftentimes with such happy spirits. But I and certainly

also you and several of your companions have no experience about

this, and in this matter we must be satisfied in just believing it.

[4] If your new God would finally die anyway what concerns

His body – in a violent manner among the vengeful hands of His

many enemies, or just like any other man in a very natural way –

would you then still remain with your assertion?”

[5] The doctor said: “Even stronger and more serious than now,

for His body is certainly not His mightiest active being, but only

O

97

His, as it were, omnipresent active Spirit that must live forever.

For if He would not live forever in the same might and power, then

who has created a suitable body for Him by which He can be quite

as visibly active now for us blind men as He was active as a pure

Spirit since eternity?

[6] The fact that He helped me from a distance makes it obvious

that it is not His to us visible body that is active, but only His

Spirit, while His body was not present. So His active power and

might are certainly not proceeding from His body, but from His

eternal Spirit that is completely present everywhere.

[7] That spirit does not need the actual activity of the body, but if

He nevertheless clothed Himself with a visible body, He certainly

did it only to make Himself visible, more understandable and more

accessible to us men who are completely blind in the spheres of the

spirit, and to reveal to us His eternal will and its endless power and

might in an understandable manner.

[8] When He will have reached the goal with us, calculated

according to His endless wisdom, and undoubtedly out of pure

love for us men, He will not need anymore His body that is now

visible to us, and He will dispose from it in the manner that

seems right to Him.

[9] If He also will allow His extremely blind and hardened

enemies to lay their hands on His body, or that He will lay off

His body in another way, will not change anything to my words.

For one time He will be invisible again to us men, but still

eternally active like He was active since eternity before assuming a

body. For if He did not exist before, then no other existence would

be imaginable.

[10] That He certainly is a Master and Lord over all existence

and life I conclude from the fact that He must thoroughly and most

clearly know about the healthy and sick arrangement of our body,

and this into the smallest fibers, so that He then, with the power of

His will can bring that which in the course of time became

damaged, sick and unusable, into a healthy condition, and usable

for the natural life, which I as an old and surely very experienced

98

doctor must certainly understand. For how could one give a

suitable means to a sick person to recover his lost health if he

would not first know what is wrong with him, and which part?

[11] But our perception, observation and opinion is and remains,

despite all our experience, nevertheless extremely rough and

disordered clumsy work, because it is impossible for us to see and

evaluate the inner relationships of our physical life’s machine in its

numberless smallest parts. And therefore, with all our good

knowledge and will, we are never capable to repair a serious

disease, even not with the most powerful and most effective

medicines, for we do not see the actual, maybe smallest sick spot

in that extremely artful life’s machine. However, the Creator and

eternal Master of that machine can see everything in one glance

and knows thus very precisely where the mistake is, and knows, as

a result of His eternal all-wisdom, the right means that is present,

and must be present, in His Spirit, in order to immediately restore

the damaged part again into the right order and activate it.

[12] If you, dear friend, carefully thought about this, you also will

realize that I cannot and will not turn away one hair’s breadth from

my first assertion, even if the body of my God would die a

thousand times. For I am more convinced than my now very

healthy existence that His body is not Himself, but only a means to

reveal Himself more closely to us men than would be possible in a

pure spiritual way. If He, for instance, would have touched me

with His hands, and only after that I would have been completely

healed, then maybe I would share your concern. But since – as

I told you before – was healed from a distance, merely by His

Spirit, He also will remain, without His body, the One He was

since eternity.

[13] Take up my opinion really deeply into your mind as a full

truth, and turn to a firm belief in the almightiness of His will.

Ask Him also to heal your body, and then you will receive what I

have received in miraculous way.”

[14] The judge, who was completely amazed about the solid

perception of the doctor, said: “I thank you, dear friend, for this

99

teaching of yours. You have changed my mind completely, and I

share now completely your opinion. O, if your and now also my

only true God would also want to help me as He has helped you,

I would praise His name only, and this throughout my whole life,

and loudly proclaim His honor to everyone. O Lord, and now also

my only true, almighty and living God, help also me from my

already long lasting great suffering. Let Your holy will heal me.”
