“If there is pain in a memory there is unforgiveness.”
“Medical textbooks list over 60 diseases that are caused by anxiety, stress and fear.”
“It’s not a surprise that anger, resentment, bitterness, jealousy and the rejection issues, fears, words, anxieties cause disease. The American Medical Association says that more than 80 percent of all of our diseases are caused by these emotions.”
“There’s one other verse that kept coming up, 2 Timothy 17. It says, “I haven’t given you a spirit of fear.” And I was born again Christian and I said, I can’t have this spirit. But I knew that I was controlled by all those fears….”
“Jesus came to heal the broken heart, and the broken heart is all of that pain, all that hurt and the things that have happened to us in life. And his blood will take away, as we truly forgive, all of that pain. And then the fight-flight process will stop and healing manifests.”
“The unforgiveness is still there if that emotional pain is still there.”

Video Transcript excerpts:
SID: Hello. I’m Sid Roth. Welcome to my world where it’s naturally supernatural. What happens if you have a terminal disease? You go to the elders of your congregation. They anoint you with oil and you’re not healed. Then you go to the best doctors money can buy and you’re still not healed. Then you go the alternative health route and you’re still not healed. What do you do? My guest says the cause of a high percentage of diseases are toxic emotions. …75 percent of the people that follow his instructions are getting healed, and he says the percentage would be even higher if they would do everything he tells them to do. My guest, Art Mathias, and you found out the hard way.
SID: And in the meantime, his sister develops tumors and she starts studying an area having to do with forgiveness and gets healed, and she sends the tapes to Art. What happened?
ART: Well I was desperate. In that condition I would even listen to something that I thought was about as hokey as it could be that my thoughts and emotions could have anything to do with what was going on in my physical body. But, you know, I was raised in the church and I didn’t think I had to forgive anything. But as I worked through what she taught me about what bitterness was, I learned that I had a lot of resentment and anger, and unforgiveness, which are all parts of bitterness. And so I started to forgive. I didn’t know how to forgive. But I started to work through. I purpose and I choose to forgive. And then there’s one other verse that kept coming up, 2 Timothy 17. It says, “I haven’t given you a spirit of fear.” And I was born again Christian and I said, I can’t have this spirit. But I knew that I was controlled by all those fears of the future, the fear of the pain that I was living in everyday, the fear that I if couldn’t eat anything, what am I gonna do?
SID: I can imagine that fear. I mean, I imagine you almost despaired of life. Life was so horrible.
ART: I couldn’t eat anything. Everything hurt. Life was hell, to be blunt, for me and my wife, probably worse for her. But as I said, “Lord, what do I do with this verse?” Because I knew I was controlled by this spirit, this fear. So just said, “In the name of Jesus, I command this fear to go.” And it was a like a hundred pounds come off my back. And it took me two or three days to figure it out, but when that spirit of fear went, so did those hundred allergies. And then my nerve endings healed. And the arm that was withered from that accident, God healed the nerves and I was able to lift weights, and I got a normal arm back.
SID: So you see, this is what he is saying. He’s saying that God wants to heal us.
SID: But there are blockages in the emotional area, not just forgiveness, in many areas. Not just fear, in many areas. And when you deal with those areas there is just a free flow of God’s healing virtue.
ART: Absolutely. God, it’s His desire, it’s His will to always heal. But we look through scriptures and we find out many times He was unable to heal and He marveled at people’s unbelief. And unbelief is really any form of disobedience. And I was very disobedient to the Lord and having anger and resentment, and bitterness in me. And then we started studying how those toxic negative emotions affect our health from science, from psychology, an area ofpsychology called psychoneural immunology, and from medical textbooks and what medicine teaches about toxic negative emotions, and in what the Bible teaches. And it’s not a surprise that anger, resentment, bitterness, jealousy and the rejection issues, fears, words, anxieties cause disease. The American Medical Association says that more than 80 percent of all of our diseases are caused by these emotions.
SID: And Art, the one thing that most people wouldn’t understand is you have some very precise steps that people have to follow. It’s not just a blanket prayer of “I forgive everyone.” Why do you have these steps? Why not just a blanket prayer?
ART: Because most people don’t understand what forgiveness is. Forgiveness is actually releasing the pain in the memories. Unforgiveness is the anger, resentment and the bitterness, those toxic negative emotions. If those toxic negative emotions are there, there is bitterness, there is unforgiveness. And when we’ve forgiven, truly forgiven, those negative emotions are gone. So really people through a four-step process of I purpose and I choose to forgive, and I cancel Satan’s authority over me, I command that fear to go or that shame to go, and I ask God to come and heal my heart and heal my body, and Lord, tell me your truth about this negative emotion.
SID: Now most people don’t do this. …
ART: And that’s why they don’t experience forgiveness, because the pain has not left their bodies. The pain hasn’t left their emotions. And Jesus came to heal the broken heart, and the broken heart is all of that pain, all that hurt and the things that have happened to us in life. And his blood will take away, as we truly forgive, all of that pain. And then the fight flight process will stop and healing manifests.
SID: But most Christians, they understand forgiveness, but they don’t go all the way.
ART: They don’t do it. We’ve been told to do it, and so we think we have, but the pain is still in our bodies.
SID: If the pain is there, there’s still the roots.
ART: The roots are still there, the bitterness, the unforgiveness is still there if that emotionalpain is still there.
SID: And I have to tell you something. When I read your book, one of the most important things that came across to me
SID: Is getting control over my thoughts.
SID: Over gossip.
SID: Over feeling negative feelings. I mean, I am getting rid of that stress level. It’s so wonderful and I feel the peace.
