What I am confused about are the channels which show large crusades by people who claim be able to heal. Mr Hinn in particular springs to mind. I am not wanting anyone to think this is an attack on what they believe or specific individuals because I really do not know enough and that isn't the right thing to do.
It just doesn't add up to me. When I hear what these individuals speak of it certainly all sounds according to God's word. They acknowledge our Lord and do things in His worthy name. I just can't accept the falling down on a stage by a touch of a hand, the weird voices, the idolising of one individual who can apparently do this. It just doesn't make sense. Are these individuals really healed? Are they really feeling the Holy Spirit upon them? My understanding of the Bible was that this was exclusive to Pentecost?
Or are we being deceived in some way? Are people deceiving themselves? I just don't know. I would love for it to be all above board but the showmanship also worries me.
Why is such a huge spectacle made of it all? Why so many on stage? Why so lavish?
So what are you thoughts on this? Please feel free to share them with me.
