The History of Evangelism and Miracle Healing


The History of Evangelism and Miracle Healing

Founded by Jesus of Nazareth, Christianity is the world’s largest religion. Its followers number 2.38 billion worldwide. Christians practice an Abrahamic, monotheistic, and redemptive faith. Evangelism and conversion are key aspects of this faith.

For a long time, evangelicalism has been a diverse and complex discursive community. Throughout its history, it has been characterized by diverse perspectives, a commitment to Biblical moralism, and a desire to make a difference.

During the nineteenth century, American Protestants experienced a heyday. In this period, missionaries fanned out across the globe. The 19th-century Protestant movement was characterized by a new and exciting rhetoric.

This rhetoric was often based on imperialist rhetoric. It argued that Western Christendom had been misled by blinders of Enlightenment reason.

This doctrine elevated believers to an almost god-like stature. It also claimed that Christian prayers would determine the outcome of an end-times cosmological battle between God and Satan. However, this idea was accused of promoting unhealthy obsession with demonic enemies.

Today, the evangelical faith is characterised by a commitment to differences, tension, and threat. These features are evident in the political praxis of the Christian Right. They shape mainstream policies and media coverage.

A recent development within evangelicalism is the “charismatic third wave.” These movements originated from a small, core group of evangelicals, including Ted Haggard, George Otis, and Charles Kraft.

The charismatic third wave departed from denominational boundaries and crossed into a variety of denominations. The movement has since reinvigorated the militancy of the Christian subject.
