But Kurt, if I become a Christian will be healed of this disease and never get sick again? A. Well, God is indeed the Healer and we should look to Him instead of to so called healing evangelists. Might not happen physically before you see Christ's face, but we all should look to Him before we look to doctors, to clinics, to Obamacare etc. God can indeed deliver any from bad habits, from sicknesses, and even restore people, but we are living in a sin-cursed fallen world here.. and as lost people continue to get sick (we see it weekly, and now the Ebola medicines are running out), so do Christians catch sicknesses. Lost people still die of cancer and so do Christians. God in His wisdom decides who He will physically heal. We just don't know why He heals some believers here, and then all others will catch permanent healing (as He brings em home to heaven). Don't blame! He didn't sin. But we know He has a good plan for us all. When we run into something we don't know or understand, we just fall back on what we do know and understand. He loves you!
You and I need to tell em it straight instead of PMA (positive mental attitude) feel good stuff only.
With all due respect, John, you need to admit it and quit it. Yup, you'll need to become an honest worker, and quit the drugs n gang banging, quit all the carousing and thievin'.. yes, quit getting blasted and loaded at the same time or at different times. But let me also say that the things that you'll gain in the will be so great that you won't even miss the old things or old life you gave up. In fact having the Lord in your life and all that you'll gain in Christ will be so wonderful that it all will even be worth dying for ..if necessary.
Why give em the neg and the poss? Well, cuz we only need to think about what is at stake and important repentance and faith in Christ are. Only in the Gospel is there the "power of God to salvation" (Rom 1:16). No wonder Paul mentions "anathema" for those who misstate the Message.
