Many places in the Turah instruction tells us, if we reject the father and do not take His words on how we should live on this earth, we actually defile the ground and curses are released. Disease is one of these curses, greed is another. We are given His words on what is correct behaviour. If we refuse, disaster and destruction reigns.
"AND IT SHALL BE, IF YOU DO NOT OBEY THE VOICE OF YAHUAH YOUR ALAHIM, TO GUARD TO DO ALL OF HIS COMMANDMENTS AND HIS LAWS WHICH I COMMAND YOU TODAY, THAT ALL THESE CURSES SHALL COME UPON YOU AND OVERTAKE YOU."
