The subject of healing is often at the peripheral edge of the Christian faith in pop culture. Fringe people talk about healing, but mainstream Christianity rarely touches it. "Miracles," after all, in the popular view, are rare. Why should we talk about sensational events that happen to the few when the majority cannot relate? Besides, if we get the hopes up of the many and they don't get healed, how will that look for Christianity?—These thoughts, I believe, accurately reflect the ideas of many of us.
This thinking results in a very boring, powerless, and almost meaningless faith. The mainstream Christianity we have known is only a religion of the mind, giving intellectual answers to perceived philosophical problems but rarely touching the soul. If Christianity is to survive (and it will), we need an all-encompassing faith that touches the body, spirit, and soul. It's time for a new mainstream Christianity, which is, in actuality, the only Christianity there has ever been.
Healing and miracles are for everyone and they sit at the center of the Gospel, just as they have always been at the center of Jesus' ministry. From the beginning to the end, each Gospel author proclaims that Jesus has come to heal and save anyone and everyone willing to receive.
The Gospel of John says,
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
