I was reading the letter of James before and I came across a verse which a brother on my judicial comittee shown me:
14 Is there anyone sickamong YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15 And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him. (James 5:14-15)
What does this word 'sick' mean? Here is the Watchtower definition:
The older men, or elders, are called upon to respond to the needs of the flock. How? Not by merely hearing a confession. Rather, since spiritual sickness is involved, something needs to be done in order to “make the indisposed one well.” (The Watchtower 2010, 9/1, p.24)
Who said anything about spiritual sickness? According to Strong's, the original word used is 'Astheneo', refers solely to physical sickness, such as leprosy. It was those prayers from the elders in the first century, just like Jesus performed in the gospels, that allowed them to heal such sicknesses. It had nothing to do with spiritualy, hence we have another scritpure that has been taken out of context and twisted to fit the needs of the WTS.
