So I know healing is being talked about on the Joyce thread, just thought we could do something here about the discussion. The debate is does God want us well and if so why aren't Christians being healed all the time or for that matter like Major had said, why aren't hospitals being cleared out with healing. So far there are two sides to this discussion. God allows us to go through death, sickness etc... for his Glory or to make us a better Christian or God wants us well and it is our faith that prevents us from receiving the supernatural healing of God. Does God cause illnesses in our lives to test us or does this come from Satan and nature taking its course? I would like people to present their case with scripture and maybe real world situations that you have encountered. After some nice discussion and everyone presenting their case others that are stuck in the middle of this can take the info, pray about it and see what God tells them. I believe there are versus that support both sides, I just don't want heated arguments about it. Let people ask questions from both sides and have a good debate. Thanks.
