"Now, does this mean that if someone is born with a disease that may kill them, it's God's plan to keep mankind pure(perfect)?"
A very good question, Sharon!
First, I believe that only spirits really exist. And disease does not kill the spirit; disease only makes spirits cry and then improve!
To add, let me say that I believe that all life is only one body, the body of God. And God's Body is All Spirits, And in order to sustain Life, God's Power must continue to flow throughout. To remain alive, all Spirit Parts must be connected by Love in a magnetic process I think of as Spiritual Physics.
And each human being is only a spirit cell in the big body of God, as are animals, plants and all other living beings. I believe that God's body, therefore is a fusion of many spirits, each with a planned special function in God's overall plan of Creation.
At the Garden of Eden, I believe that God allowed Adam, the Spirit of Man, to begin a Creation process of strengthing spirits, and ensuring their connection, starting with Eve, The Spirit of Woman. And so God allowed Adam to create flesh bodies to capture spirits. And Adam, believing thoughts he learned from Satan, God's Angel of Purification, that he, Adam was as God.
Adam freely chose to attempt to use God's Creation tools to satisfy his own lust by trying to capture spirits into flesh bodies that he made. God knew he would do this. It was part of Creation's purification plan.
This resulted in Adam's spiritual communication breaking away from God, temporarily, and initiated a short process (in God time) of refining The Spirit of Man into the purity needed for God's Perfection.
God did not plan disease, per se. Disease, as I understand it, is simply an ugliness in physical bodies that irritates spirits, but continues only for a short time during the purification process of man. And all of the pain we dwell on results from being captured in flesh containers, given to us by Adam, God's first man. This pain teaches us to hate the lust of man and search to God for our own purification through Love.
And as new broken, imperfect spirit parts are generated during the birth process, man lives on with God's life and spirit, still in every cell, searching diligently to find new ways to ease pain, heal disease, and stop its spread, as men of cloth seek God in prayer for healing, all natural and necessary parts to God's marvellous plan of Creation.
Remember, there is no magic to Creation. Everything comes about in a natural, explainable, orderly process, as God fulfills His Plan, purifying us all as we are lead to fulfill God's desire for One Kingdom of connected (Loving) illuminated (Lighted) purified Cells in One Body, The Body of Christ, God's Spririt of Love.
So, as in the sense that you do not make dirt when you wash your food, God did not create disease when he creates purity in His Body, although dirt is needed to grow food and disease is necessary to show where purity and healing are needed.
Again, only spirits really exist for eternity. Our physical bodies are merely throw-away shells, that die and decay back to dust.
Make any sense, whatsoever?
These are my beliefs, opinions if you like. I hope they motivate you to continue thinking and searching beyond everything we have ever been taught in a marvellous quest for Truth.
May God bless you abundantly,
