In common usage, faith healing refers to notably overt and ritualistic practices of communal prayer and gestures (such as laying on of hands) that are claimed to solicit divine intervention in initiating spiritual and literal healing.<quoted text>
Oh, I wanted some Beam after reading the post-
Jas 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.("That ye may be healed" speaks of a physical healing of an illness....sins are forgiven...not healed)"
It was the "physical healing of an illness" as a result of the preceding prayer that got me to "faith healing", Ox.
Show me these words in my post "gestures" "laying on of hands".....
