There is a quote in this article that is remarkable:
“There is a special value in these public healings,” says Nemeh in explaining why he conducts them. Often on his feet for ten hours or more at each service, Dr. Nemeh says, “Healings and miracles that happen in front of our eyes inspire believers and persuade the skeptics to become believers because they witness physical proof of God’s work.”
Issam Nemeh, M.D., a cardiothoracic anesthesiologist.
The following video describes Dr. Nemeh this way: “Can the power of prayer heal? Can faith cure terminal disease? In this News Channel 5 special, Ted Henry reports on an unprecedented number of faith healings happening right here in Cleveland. It’s Ohio’s greatest untold story: HEALING MIRACLES”
The obvious question, Dr. Nemeh, is simple: Can you heal an amputee? If not, why not?
According to the article, here is a typical healing:
Local psychotherapist Mary Richards, M.A. has experienced that proof first-hand. Suffering from severe neurological issues and vertigo, Richards was discouraged when physicians throughout California were unable to help her. So she set search on the internet for alternative ways to treat her condition. She discovered Dr. Nemeh’s website www.pathtofaith.com, and found testimonials of people who had been healed with Dr. Nemeh’s intercessory help.
Richards telephoned the office, and after praying with Dr. Nemeh found some immediate relief. Subsequent calls led to more relief and final healing. Mary’s husband, Pastor Channing Smith, of Transfiguration Episcopal Church amazed at the change of his wife’s condition and grateful for her complete recovery, invited Dr. Nemeh to hold a three-day ecumenical event.
Lots more testimonials here: Testimonials
It is predicted that 100,000 people will come to see Dr. Nemeh when he visits San Francisco. 100,000 delusional people.
Why are they delusional? Because Dr. Nemeh can’t heal amputees, or anyone else.
But what he can do is create a facade of healing, tap into the power of coincidence, and then rake in money from desperate people. If you visit Dr. Nemeh’s web site, you find the true reason for his “ministry”:
There will be a $20.00 charge per ticket.
What a surprise! Just like every other faith healer, it is all about the money. Get 1,000 people to show up, that’s $20,000. Work 10 hours, that’s $2,000 per hour. Not a bad way to make a living! Just like Benny Hinn:
If you are a Christian, and if you think Dr. Nemeh is for real, please use your intelligence. Watch the video and note that it clearly says, “not everyone is healed.” That is true – the vast majority are not. Then note that zero amputees are healed, even though it is claimed that God is providing the healing. If God is providing the healing, then God should be able to heal anyone, and everyone.
Then look at the case of Jessi Kicham, who is given two minutes at the end of the video. This is a classic case of coincidence. It is claimed that “God has healed her”, but her speech is nearly incomprehensible. If a perfect “god” had healed her, she would be healed. What you are looking at is the natural healing that would be taking place with or without Dr. Nemeh. This is the power of coincidence that Dr. Nemeh taps into to make his claims, and to then charge $20 per head. It is all about the money, and the money is made possible by the superstitious delusion of Christianity.
If you would like to heal your delusion, you can do it without spending a dime. See this free book:
