Are faith healers for real?

Are faith healers for real?

There is no doubt that God has the power to heal anyone at any time. The question is whether He chooses to do so through those who are called “faith healers.” These individuals typically convince their audiences that God wants them to be well and that through their faith—and usually a financial offering—God will reward their faith by healing them through the power of Jesus.

By comparing the healing ministry of the Lord Jesus to that of the modern faith healers, we can determine whether their claims have any basis in Scripture. If, as they say, they heal through the same power and in the same way that Jesus healed, we should be able to see marked similarities between them. However, just the opposite is true.

There have always been false healers who prey on the suffering and the desperate in order to pad their bank accounts. Such behavior is the worst kind of blasphemy because many whose money is wasted on false promises reject Christ outright because He does not do what the healer has promised. Why, if faith healers have the power to heal, do they not walk the halls of the hospitals healing everyone and releasing them all? Why do they not go to Africa and cure all the AIDS cases? They do not because they cannot. They do not have the power of healing that Jesus possessed.


This sounds like our political system where democrats are "faith healers" that will cure your ills regardless of your troubles. If it is hot, they will fix it. No money for school, they will fix it. Can't pay for food, they will fix it. No housing, they will provide tents. Just have faith.

Too many shams obscure the very few who has the ability through Christ to heal and the person afflicted need to be known to actually have a disease or affliction that can not be cured by medical science. Christ won't heal those whom either put him to the test, has caused the problem themselves by their personal / social behavior or has to mindset to not believe if nothing happens afterwards. There must not be a man made remedy (God help those whom help themselves). Example Christ will not cure someone with covid if they refused to take proper steps to had prevented it to begin with. The person asking for help must have a very strong belief in the faith without reservation.

Hope there is a special place in hell for those whom scam for their personal financial benefit having fakers coming up to be "cured" (that goes for the fakers as well). :angry:
