There is a myth that if people really trusted God for healing, they would in fact be healed. When people who believe that myth aren’t healed, they feel guilty. They look for the supposed “secret sin” that is keeping them from being healed.

Christian friends and family may tell them they need to pray that God will show them their sins so that he can heal them. They might tell the sick person that he or she needs more faith, and prescribe more prayer and Bible study and fasting as the way to get God to heal them.

Let God Be God

Photo of Mike FeazellMay I ask you a couple of personal questions? 

You don't have to respond out loud; silent answers will do. The answers are for you, not for me.

Here's the first question: Has your child ever gotten a bit rebellious, uncooperative or disrespectful?

Who Is God?

Is God a nice old man in the sky? A cranky being who wants to dish out “justice” on you? Is he like a human father or mother?

Charles Haddon Spurgeon was England’s best-known preacher for most of the second half of the 19th century. In a sermon he gave when he was only 20, Spurgeon declared that the proper study for a Christian is the Godhead. Here is a quote from that sermon—it’s one of my favorites:

Perichoresis - What's That?

A discussion with C. Baxter Kruger, founder of Perichoresis, Inc.

Question: Most of us can’t even pronounce perichoresis, much less spell it. What does it mean?

Baxter Kruger: Some years ago a woman walked into my office around Christmastime with a stack of newsletters in her hand. She was crying, and she slammed the newsletters down on my desk and said, “I just feel like a pile of junk!”

I said, “What is wrong?”

God's Names and Titles

The names of God and the words used for God found in the Old Testament reflect a Semitic world’s commitment to the relationship between the nature of anything and the name of that thing. The name could not be divorced from the nature of the actual being of the thing. The revelation of God belongs to the divine freedom of the Self-Naming God. The various names of God in his acts with his people in the world cannot be divorced from his actual nature and being. All the names of God must refer to who he truly is with Israel and the world.
