If you missed last week’s introductory article to this subject, be sure to catch up on what you missed! When a person is told that the reason he or she is not healed is always his or her fault, and this also includes tragic accidents and death, we believe this [...]
In the 1980s, Asher and I studied the subject of healing with great intensity. We studied the most prominent teachers on what the Bible teaches about healing.

This statement is a representation of not only many young people today, but of even some older people who are in their senior years of disillusionment with congregational life as they experienced it. Yet, it is so very different than what would have been stated decades ago both by Jews [...]
