So lets all go back a year ago and see if we can find something to attack. That is all you are about PERCY. You are really pathetic.

Old JG is not even here any more(ARE YOU THE PERSON THAT CALLED KAREN A BXXXX) an yet you continue to attack and condemn. To what avail? Does that make you feel like less of a worm?

And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
so with this verse, it indicates that illness and sickness will be with us until that time when God comes back.
Godly people are not immune to sickness and pain, and to indicate otherwise plays into the hand of the devil.

Now PAD, there is no way that you can convince me that God is going to Heal a person that doesnt even believe in Him. but you are welcome to try. GO 4 IT!!
Romans 1:16 tells us, "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to {every one that believeth}; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
now here is what some writer is saying and it is completely FALSE.
Remember that the same principles work for forgiveness of sin as for healing miracles. The Greek word (sozo) to "save" is the same as "to heal." http://www.godspeak.org/hs_lessons/hs14_week4...
that word {sozo}means to save only but these charlatans that want to preach on divine healings will do and say anything to get a dime.see #2.1.
now in the instance of the woman with the issue of Blood, that word is also used and she was healed, however she was {Saved }from death.as I do believe, she would have died if He had not been there
But Jesus, having turned and seen her, said, Daughter, be of good comfort; your faith has healed you. And the woman was healed{sozo}
from that hour.but she was not a heathen. she had more faith than many of us do today.

The Infamous May 31, 1997 Interview: Graham and Schuller
The Reverend Robert
Schuller of
California's Crystal
Cathedral interviewed
Billy Graham.
Robert Schuller: "Tell me, what do you think of the future of Christianity?"
Billy Graham: "I think everybody who knows Christ, whether they're conscious of it or not, they're members of the Body of Christ...God's purpose is to call out a people for His name, whether they come from the Muslim world, Buddhist world, the Christian world, or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ, because they've been called by God. They may not even know the name of Jesus...and I think they are saved, and that they are going to be in heaven with us."
Robert Schuller (overjoyed): "What I hear you saying is that it's possible for Jesus Christ to come into human hearts and soul and life even if they've been born into darkness and never had exposure to the Bible. Is that a correct interpretation of what you are saying?"
Billy Graham: "Yes it is, because I believe that. I've met people in various parts of the world...that have never seen a Bible or heard about a Bible, and never heard of Jesus, but they've believed in their hearts that there was a God."
So, there you have it. The world's most famous evangelist teaches that no one needs Jesus to be saved and enter the Kingdom of Heaven. They're already members of the Body of Christ whether they know it or not! All they have to do is believe in a God--like one of the three million Hindu gods; or perhaps the man-god whom many Buddhists worship, the Dalai Lama; or the Moslem's Allah; or perhaps the Cosmic God of the evolutionists; or the witches' horned god, Pan; or perhaps all that people must do is believe in the New Age deity--themselves--as God!

I just love to get a opportunity to use some big words once in awhile when I get to post to someone who has 125 years of Bible study, now find you a Hebrew concordance and see what this word means."chabbuwrah". it means our healing comes through being joined to God spiritually.

"by His wounds we are healed"

WOUNDS....

It doesn't say:

"by His words you are healed"

During Jesus' earthly ministry, He would often heal people by simply saying the words.

When He healed a paralytic:

Luke 5:24

24 But I want you to know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.” So he said to the paralyzed man,“I tell you, get up, take your mat and go home.”

Jesus, also, healed people by His touch.

But, we are talking about WOUNDS....

What is it about His wounds that would heal us (SPIRITUALLY)???

Jesus’ wounds healed me ~WHEN~ He bore my sins in His body!

1 Peter 2:24

24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

You belong to Jesus, who bought you with His blood.

when we are healed physically it is because He intercedes for us, but it is not automatic.
before bub anointed me for my bad leg, I had went to another church, was anointed and nothing happened. 6 days later, at Bubs church, I was anointed and later at home, I was touched by the Lord.to teach otherwise is not Biblical. sometimes when a person is not healed, people like you come up with ths"well they didnt have enough faith". seen that before from people like you and others on here could say the same thing.

You measure every thing by your own experience...You are not the only

one on earth, as eevidentlly you believe you are.

Your limited faith in God's ability to perform his word

is grossly distorted weak and pitifully un-scriptural.

Your concept of God is that he has no more ability than you have ..

and you evidently believe that you are Messiah..

Every thing has to Go you way and by what you say or you attempt to dominate and destroy those that disagree with you by character assassination and bullying.

2Co_10:12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.

Eph_3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think,

according to the power that worketh in us,

1Th_2:13 For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us, ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God,

There is a reason the Roman Catholic Church is ... as you say ... hated and picked on the most!

That reason IS:
FOR 1500 years she waged WAR against those who were NOT Catholic. Their own leader SANCTIONED TORTURE AND MURDER OF 'HERETICS'! and this is one of the main reasons there are now so many Protestant denominations ... everyone is trying to figure out how to get away from the entrenched Catholic teachings.

Show me another Christian *denomination* that has murdered MORE so called heretics than the Catholic church, and I will say you have a valid point. I don't need to sy your point is valid, because I know in advance you can't point to a more murderous *so called* Christian church.
The Catholic church CALLS itself "Christian" but that doesn't mean that it is.

PAGAN ORIGIN of the Eucharist:
http://www.mtc.org/eucharst.html
The doctrine of transubstantiation does not date back to the Last Supper as is supposed. It was a controverted topic for many centuries before officially becoming an article of faith, which means that it is essential to salvation according to the Roman Catholic Church. The idea of a corporal presence was vaguely held by some, such as Ambrose, but it was not until 831 A.D. that Paschasius Radbertus, a Benedictine monk, published a treatise openly advocating the doctrine of transubstantiation. Even then, for almost another four hundred years, theological war was waged over this teaching by bishops and people alike until at the Fourth Lateran Council in 1215 A.D., it was officially defined and canonized as a dogma.
I read the whole article,interesting to say the least.

preston,never saw that interview,and did hear of it till now.Robert Schuller is he of the same way of thinking? He at times seems very liberal as his denomination sways to and fro.

You know lots of people today are considering a broad faith like the one mentioned in the interview.Billy Graham is not my lord,nor is he the one I pray to.If of course that interview is true,and what he said is accurate,I am sadened by that.He could have said, people's hearts are being prepared to receive Christ's message of salvation. I understand where he is coming from,but I cannot agree that, as those people remain in darkness and do not hear the gospel,that they receive salvation through Christ.We might as well not even waste our missionaries,and the efforts to bring the gospel to every creature.

Billy Graham has come a long way if he has resorted to that,his son never says things like that.

I am convinced more than ever that persecution is the only thing that will separate the sheep from the goats. If those believers in prisons,and labor camps in various countries hostile to Christ,believed that it does not matter what you believe in the way of religion,if you are good and believe you can have Christ,even if you never know or hear His Name,than why suffer in prison or a re-education camp?

Buddhists in Myanmar are persecuting the Karen Christians,what is the point of being persecuted for Christ,if in fact those Buddhists do not really need to hear the Gospel?

If what Billy Graham said in the interview with Robert Schuller is true,than all those believers who languish in prisons and labor camps for preaching Christ,are wasting their time.Besides it is not our role on this earth to declare who is saved and who is not,but to present the Gospel of Christ,which shows men how to be saved.

I cannot even judge Billy Graham here,and his words will have to be judged by God alone.Only God our Father is JUDGE,and we cannot condemn any man or woman.

The Gospel declares that Jesus Christ died for all human beings,and that they should be given the opportunity to receive Him by faith,but they need to repent and be baptized for the remission of sins.The challenge for all human beings is to take the risk and follow Christ,in order to find out about His salvation.Unless people do such,they will die in their sins.

Roman Catholic DOUBLE-SPEAK 101

The RCC doesn't change it's teachings? Baloney!

Per the (Infallible) Council of Trent - Canon I: "If any one shall deny that the body and blood, together with the soul and divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ, and therefore entire Christ, are truly, really, and substantially contained in the sacrament of the most holy Eucharist; and shall say that He is only in it as a sign, or in a figure, or virtually,— let him be accursed."

("accursed" -- under or subject to a curse; doomed)

But today, the RCC says not all non-believers are accursed or doomed.

To anyone but a Catholic, that is a 180 degree turn-around.

What always draws me to Christ is the infinite love that brought Him to be tortured, spit on, humiliated, and finally crucified for those ,like me that didnt deserve it.Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism do not have that. Also where Muslims can say they have the word in the Quran Jesus is the Word.Jesus waited patiently for me to have my little intellectual journeys where thought I was so smart to know Buddhism or philosophy. When I was all done He took me in His arms and saved me.
