HE WHO BELIEVES IS NOT CONDEMNED

        Who are those who believe?  Those who have discovered their sinfulness and, desirous to be cured, goes to the Divine Physician for cure.     

        When a person is sick and desires to be cured, and he sees the physician, he welcomes the sight and approaches fearlessly.  Such is one who believes.  He welcomes the sight of the Divine Physician, listens to His prescription in the form of His Commandments and gladly drinks the medication.  Such good patients will surely be healed.  And so with the soul: his fallen nature is cured, he ceases from sinning and, therefore, is saved.  Christ made it clear they will no longer be judged. They will go straight to heaven. 

        There are, however, sick people who go to the physician to find out the proper medication but simply out of curiosity.  They never take the medication or take it carelessly.  Such will not be cured.  The same way, there are people who want to know how to be saved merely out of curiosity but do very little about the spiritual medication.  Such will never be cured.   

St. Thomas of Aquinas
