Miracle Healing in Christianity


Miracle Healing in Christianity

Christianity is a religion based on the life of Jesus of Nazareth. It is a monotheistic, Abrahamic faith that has 2.38 billion followers worldwide. Christian practice is centered on the belief that Jesus was a savior and has achieved redemption by his death and resurrection.

The practice of healing and prayer became central to redemptive praxis. Christians were expected to pray for the sick, and saints had prayers that were likely to produce healing.

By the fourth century, church growth accelerated. Some Protestants and cessationists fled urban corruption, while others continued to preach the gospel in large services. Evangelists also remained dedicated to evangelism.

Healing and prayer were often limited by church leaders. Some believed that they could not obtain healing unless they performed miracles. Those who did pray for healing usually used incantations or spells. They attributed sickness to the devil.

The early church had an order of exorcists. Many Western missionaries were cessationists. Their practices were influenced by Neoplatonic concepts of the body as a prison for the soul.

Jesus and the apostles cast out many demons. They anointed the sick with oil. This became a sacrament and was used for spiritual preparation for heaven.

In the Gospels, there are many stories of healing. One example is the leper who was restored by Jewish Scriptures. Another is the deaf-mute man who shouted praises to Jesus and was healed.

During the nineteenth century, a charismatic renewal movement developed in the United States. This movement shifted the focus from human failure to God’s love.
