Concerning healing: Is it God's will that anyone become sick? Does God partner with death? Does God have a "revealed" will and a "secret" will? Did Jesus ever tell someone that they were sick for a reason, and turn them away? Did He ever tell them that by their momentary light affliction God was working in them an eternal weight of glory? Didn't Jesus heal everyone that came to Him? Why do we make up false doctrines to hide our laziness and fallenness? Why can't we just admit that God doesn't heal through us because we don't have compassion on the sick, nor do we have faith or hope (true Biblical hope; not wishing)? Wouldn't God love it if we were just real with Him?
