You seem to think the sick man didn't have faith.luchnia wrote: ↑Mon Feb 11, 2019 7:18 amSo it would seem there is no one size fits all when it comes to healing. You have the woman with the issue that was healed on her faith where Jesus perceived that virtue went from Him, but with these four men it would seem it was their faith that got their friend healed, then you also have the message in James where it implies the faith of the righteous is enough.
I don't think that's the case.
If he didn't have the faith to be healed he wouldn't have allowed four men to pick him up and take him anywhere.
All healing requires the faith of someone.I tend to look at things of God such as healing in a purpose and orderly manner of process. In other words even though there might be many aspects to healing, it all has to have a solid step through process at its root. The challenge to my understanding on this is that there are so many different cases that don't seem to follow a concise pattern.
It requires the gracious answer by God to the request.
That is the "pattern".
