Spiritual Disease, Spiritual Cures

Commenting on Colossians 3:1-4, Hendriksen writes

“It was indicated that there is no material cure for a spiritual ill, that neglect of the body will never heal the soul’s sickness but will aggravate it, that heaven-born individuals cannot gain satisfaction from earth-born remedies. Christ, he alone, is the answer, Christ in all the fulness of his love and power”
