Ok. So I am checking out this Church (everyone is going to be so sick of me talking about this, but hey what's this site for anyway?). This Church is a church that is "lead by the spirit". Well, as I have said before, I have been raised a JW all my life and have not been exposed or seasoned as far as other religions go. And this is a new one to me.
I am currently DA'd and last night I went home to my JW parents to clear out some things in my head. They are both very strong JW's. Anyway I was asking my mom (cause lets be honest, a DA'd boy's best friend is still his mama...lol) about this and her simple (and previously accepted) explanation was "if its a genuine healing, then its from Satan. Miracles are not preformed here on the Earth anymore." My honest and inquisitive response was "where is that said in the bible, or what's your reasoning that they aren't?", and my mom is one of the smartest people I know...so I don't mean to discredit her in the least, but it left me with an unfulfilled need to know. What is the JW stance on this? Do faith healings really occur and are they really part of the macanations (spell check wouldn?t pick this up) of the Enemy? My best friend swears up and down he saw a paraplegic wheel down to the front of the church and walk back. believes in faith healing but not that slam-you-so-hard-in-the-forhead-you-get-knocked-over-and-your-grandkids-in-their-seats-90-ft-away-feel-it....So since I am interested in this church and the message that they teach, I am conflicted. All my life I was taught that this was all part of Satan?s world. I am finding out now, a lot of things are not like I was taught...so any insight (either biblical or unbiblical) on this would be most appreciated and helpful!
