May it never be! Let God be true, and every man a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.” (Ro 3:4)

Be In Health

I would like some help and opinions. Talk to as many other Christians as you can and ask them about their opinion on this.
Here are the questions.

“As Pastor Wright says in his book, A MORE EXCELLENT WAY, in the case of chronic conditions, where the etiology is unknown by the medical profession, 80% of all illness has some form of spiritual root or sin issue that needs addressing. The problem comes when the Christian believer no longer thinks he should be concerned with sin in his life because he has become a Christian.”

Do you agree with this statement? Is it Scriptural? Do 2 Corinthians 7:1; 1 Thessalonians 5:23 give support to this theology?

Take a look at this website. Just as an example, look at this article.

An endocrinologist would treat diabetes with diet and medication. Unfortunately, an endocrinologist is not schooled in unraveling the spiritual roots of the diseases they specialize in. God’s people are sent into the world for help, when the answers are already there in His Word.

We have had tremendous success in seeing diabetes healed. But, this manner of ministry requires getting involved in people’s lives. The people we see with type two diabetes usually carry high levels of fear. They tend to be perfectionists, highly driven people with no allowance for failure. This performance creates great anxiety and a self-imposed fear of failure. These people are constantly projecting into tomorrow the potential failure of something. We call that morbidity or pre-morbidity. The Bible, however, tells us to be anxious for nothing.
Philippians 4:6; 1 John 4:18; John 14:1
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me.

We classify adult onset diabetes with other fear/stress/anxiety diseases like high blood pressure, asthma, glaucoma and angina because they all involve cell wall rigidity. When there is cell wall rigidity, you have stiffening of the cell walls and osmosis is hindered. In the case of type 2 diabetes, there is resistance in the cells to properly absorb the insulin.

Does this even make Biblical sense to you? I know where I stand on this but I am curious to know how pervasive this is accepted by other Christians?

    Hi teleologist,

    No I don’t believe their stand is Biblical or to be more accurate, complete. I think these people are confusing definitions, Heb 5:9, Phi 2:12, 2Co 7:10. This last verse sums it up nicely.

    Let me also share this with you. My professor of Systematic Theology in his first class, started drawing symbols of our Christian doctrines on the blackboard. Than he explained, when you move away from the blackboard you can see them all and get a balanced picture, however if you “put your nose” into any one of them the rest you can hardly, if at all, see. That was 20 years ago, but I’ll never forget it.

    Because we all tend to emphasise one or the other aspect of our faith, we should be extra carefull and always allow Holly Spirit to bring balanced and complete understanding. What you have here is perfect example of one sidedness in interpreting Scriptures.

    PS And where on earth did they get this? “Is coming again, first in the “First Resurrection” and then 7 years later in the “Day of the Lord.””

    Hi inunison,

    Thanks for the comment. That is a good example of tunnel vision. Do you know how pervasive this type of thinking is among Christians? The circles that I run in are more conservative although I am beginning to bump into this theology now.

    P.S. Where did you get this statement? “Is coming again, first in the “First Resurrection” and then 7 years later in the “Day of the Lord.””

    From the link you provided in your post: “Take a look at this website.” (http://www.beinhealth.com/simple/articles.html)

  • teleologist says:

    Nope, I still don’t see it. There must be something wrong with me.

    In any case, you are right I have no idea what that means. I see the words but it could be all scrambled for that matter, because I don’t understand what it means.

    Thanks inunison,

    Frankly I didn’t read everything on that site and his statement of beliefs is meaningless when I see the way that he has masticated the Scriptures.

    I am no expert in eschatology because I have very little interest in studying the subject. So it is no surprise that I have no idea what he means by the 1st resurrection. Is he alluding to healings during Christ’s ministry and the Apostolic age? And is he claiming that we are in the midst of the 2nd coming? Were the raptured saints (if you believe in pre-trib) involved in the defeat of the antichrist? His interpretations are so far off the mark. I can’t imagine how anyone can listen this anything he says.

    Which brings me back to my question, how pervasive is this kind of, eh…, whatever this is.
