Chaplain Explains Why And When God Heals People. Readers respond:
It is fascinating to read your posts. I know exactly where you are coming from. That firm belief in the Truth you have dedicated your life to (I was a missionary for 20+ years), and all the evidence that somehow it doesn’t quite work like you expect, and all the excuses why, the compulsion to let God off the hook for not fulfilling his promises. And having to point to things like “peace” and “joy” as spectacular evidence of promise fulfillment.
As I read your posts I can’t help [seeing that] you are here with deep questions about the disconnects you are describing in the Faith.
I encourage you to step back and read your own posts from a position outside the Faith – just as a thought experiment – and see if you see what I see.
All the best on your journey.
