BAPTIST RESPONSE TO HEALING

The Baptist Church was formed in America {early 1700's} at a time when Medicine and Pharmacy was in its infancy and many people became sick and died over simple Infections!

The baptist Elders followed what the Bible says to do as to the sick:

"Are there any sick among you? Let him call for the Elders of the Church,
and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord."

"And the Prayer of Faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up.
And if he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven." James: 5:14-15

But, the sick grew sicker and died, and very soon the Baptist Church Elders realized,
THAT THERE WAS NO DIVINE HEALING POWER AT WORK IN THEIR CHURCHES!!!
And their congregations were growing more and more restless with each passing death!

Rather than looking at their "twisted" Church Dogma {such as their false Eternal Security Doctrine/ a misplaced emphasis upon Water Baptism and a lust for capital punishment} they chose to accept a much "darker path! THEY INVENTED A LIE!

The Baptist "Elite" twisted a single verse from the New Testament and proclaimed --

DIVINE HEALINGS ARE NO MORE!
Healing ceased in 99 a.d. with the advent of the Bible.

"Love never fails! But whether there are prophecies, they shall end, whether there are tongues, they will cease, whether there is knowledge it will pass away."

"For we know in part and prophecize in part."

"But when that which is PERFECT has come, then that which is in part shall pass away."
1 COR:13:8-10

The above passage is clearly speaking about the SECOND COMING of Christ!

When Jesus THE PERFECT returns-- the prophecy will be completed! We will not need the Gifts of the Spirit to build our Faith for we shall not even need faith any longer:
We shall see the LORD a Paul continues:

"For now we see {The Lord} in a dim mirror, but on that day, Face to Face."
1 COR:13:12

"Yet the Baptist Elders proclaimed THE PERFECT is the Bible, not the Second Coming of Christ -- And the Hellish Lie of "no more divine healings was born!

The problems with this teaching are:

1 - The Masses did NOT have a copy of the Bible at the end of 99 a.d. There were very few copies of the Gospel; each having to be written by Scribes with quill and parchment!

The Bible itself: The Four Gospels and the Letters was not placed into
A Collection/Book until between 350 a.d. - 400 a.d.

The Bible was not mass produced until 1611 a.d. - 1700 a.d. and to this day not every person upon Earth has access to the Bible.

2 - The Bible itself says to "pray for and lay hands upon the sick and GOD will heal them." Ja:5:14-15

SO BAPTIST MINISTERS AND PASTORS STILL PROCLAIM THE LIE:
THERE IS NO LONGER ANY DIVINE HEALING!

Worst of all, if a person is ever healed,
These same twisted Ministers will claim that
Satan/Lucifer is the source of this healing!

In the Gospel, JESUSwarns that
"Men's traditions will render the Word of God Void = Powerless..."

R. Jerry Falwell and about 10 million Baptists are proving this to be so sadly true! {MK:7:13}.

TORTURED PENTECOSTAL RESPONSE

Many Pentecostal Churches have a different response when someone is not divinely healed or no miracle happens! Rather then consider maybe something they are teaching is wrong: they actually turn-on the sick party and ACCUSE them of "lacking faith."

I have seen a Child die of a disease and a Pastor actually tell he grieving parents "it was their fault because they did not have enough faith." How twisted and cruel can you get?

THIS IS WHY LOVE MUST GUIDE OUR DOCTRINES.
WHY ALL THAT WE TEACH MUST BE BASED-UPON LOVE!

In the Gospel, Jesus said, "If we have faith the size of a mustard seed, our faith could move a mountain." {Matt:17:20}.

A mustard seed is one of the smallest seeds in nature. Jesus is telling us that we only need a tiny amount of Faith for GOD to answer our prayers! Thus the "lack of faith" response of so many a Pentecostal Churches goes directly against what Jesus taught!

There are many factors why a person is not healed or a child, who is prayed for, dies.
However a "lack of faith" is never the reason! {To even say a prayer, takes at least a "drop" of faith}.

So few if any are healed in the Churches today! The Baptists say "No healing for today.":
Many Pentecostal Churches say 'lack of faith..." and they never consider their false, twisted Teachings are what is CHOKING-OFF the Power of GOD! {Mark:7:13}
"The traditions of men render the Word of God," void -- of no effect!

God Bless You
