Thinking about healing
Sometimes I feel as if the local church needs a healthy theology of healing. I’m not speaking of my local church or any church in particular. I just wonder….
What is the responsibility of the local church toward suffering, sickness?
What role/function does the Bible demand of the local church?
Often the individual enduring the crisis is expected to muster the faith or bare the burden.
Does the local church need a more faithful theology of healing? A deeper exploration of Scripture and a pastoral paradigm of healing within the local church?
I’m close to really researching and writing about this..your thoughts
