Miracle Healing in Christianity

Christianity is the world’s largest religion with a population of more than two and a half billion people. It is a monotheistic religion based on the life of Jesus of Nazareth.

The Bible is full of stories of healing. In fact, many Christians believe that walking in faith will keep you from getting sick.

There are three major types of healing. The first type involves prayer, the second uses sacraments and the third involves a supernatural intervention.

In the early Church, a miraculous healing was a sign of a person’s faith. An example is Philip’s exorcism of demons.

Another miracle-filled moment was the infilling of the Holy Spirit. This was a sign that God was bringing someone into His presence and cleansing them of sin. Many Protestants attributed their “new birth” experiences to this miracle.

One of the more common miracles a Christian might see was the deaf-mute man who was healed of his affliction. Typically, the miracles are not performed in front of a group. Instead, the miraculous takes place in a private home.

Interestingly, the miracle that has been most credited to Christianity is not one that takes place in church. Although the Bible tells us that God can heal the sick, the miraculous happens outside of church walls.

During the age of Enlightenment, a number of skeptical philosophers and scientists began to question the historical reliability of some of the most dramatic miraculous biblical texts.

Regardless, the true Church of Christ believes in the miraculous. They follow Apostle James’ inspired biblical teaching.
