Three Attitudes Toward Divine Healing
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. — 2 TIMOTHY 2:15
There are at least three different attitudes toward healing among Christians that I want to explore.
One attitude is held by the group that teaches that healing is not for us today. They base this on the theory that healing is a miracle, and miracles do not belong to us today; they only belonged to the apostolic age. And when the last apostle died, divine healing ceased.
A second attitude holds that God heals today in answer to special prayer or a special act of faith, but it is according to God’s own will in the matter.
A third attitude teaches that healing for the body is the legal right of every child of God and that the child of God receives healing for his physical body on the same grounds that he receives the remission of sin for his spirit.
Confession: I base my attitude toward divine healing on the Word of God. Matthew 8:17 says, “Himself took my infirmities and bare my sicknesses.” And First Peter 2:24 says, “By Jesus’ stripes, I was healed!”
