I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Tulsa is the buckle of the Bible belt.
Tulsa’s loaded with poor saps from all over the world who attend two famous charismatic “colleges.”
They receive lots of expensive training in bad doctrine.
Given there are so many charismatics around, it’s no surprise I’ve had two fools on separate occasions come up to me out of nowhere and rudely tell me:
“If you had enough faith you’d be healed.”
Isn’t that rude?
Response One to “If you had enough faith you’d be healed”:
“I’m not sick.”
The next few minutes go badly for them.
I obliterate their dangerous, rude, and incorrect theology. I explain to them that the only thing that matters is that, “God someday will give me a new body. But not here on earth.”
I should instead say, “God someday will give me a new body… You busybody.”
“I pray for my relationship with Him; I don’t pray for the selfish things you tell me to do.”
“Throughout history, when people see miracles, they have more unbelief, not more belief. Which you’d know if you ever read a Bible.”
It is They Who Have No Faith:
They leave feeling sick for picking me to play their game.
Which obviously means they didn’t have enough faith.
Which is true.
How Weird is this One?
The second fool who came up to me with that line told me later in the conversation that he was a surgeon!
Why would he put faith in himself and not in God to heal sick people? Hypocrite!
No wonder Hollywood mocks Christianity so much.
