Just noticed this article on the BBC website. It details some stuff of people who claim to do faith healing as well as the various trials. It does conclude with pointing out that those who make the claims never come up with evidence.
Anyone come across any faith healers?
Can't say I have any direct experience with faith healers. I remember a man in my church was had an experience with Oral Roberts via TV. As I recall the story, the man was suffering with sever back pain. He was watching Oral Roberts on TV. Roberts was closing his show by calling out about various ailments and declaring the people afflicted with them as healed. The dialogue between the man and his TV went something like this:
Roberts: And there is a man out there with sever back pain.
Man I knew: YES!
Roberts: And this back pain has been with him for some time.
Man I knew: Yes! YES!
Roberts: And he has not found any relief.
Man I knew: YES! YES!
Roberts: I declare you to be healed in the name of Jesus!
The man said the pain went away and never came back. I have no reason to doubt his sincerity. Was it psychological? A self-healing chiropractic maneuver? God working through Oral Roberts and TV? I cannot say with absolute certainty.
I know he was convinced that he was healed by God via Oral Roberts while watching Roberts on TV.
