"The Anti-faith Movement"


Dear friends:
 
A recent post on the Internet blasted the so-called “Faith Movement” and denigrated all who teach it, expressing great sympathy for its “victims.”
 
Suddenly I had a flash of revelation that there have been many more victims of the “Doubt Movement,” which pervades much of the church today.  The Doubt Movement is responsible for untold suffering, unnecessary sicknesses, and millions of premature deaths.  If God’s people just believed and acted upon James 5:13-15, many hospitals would be emptied.
 
This got me to thinking….
 
The Faith Movement has really been mislabeled.  It should more properly be called the “Faith in Jesus Movement,” or “The Bible Is Really True” movement.
 
The anti-faith movement should be called the “Jesus Lied” movement, or “The Bible is Not Really True” movement.
 
Years ago I discovered that Jesus cannot lie (Titus 1:2) and that the Bible is totally true (2 Timothy 3:16).  I made a decision to believe it.  That decision radically changed my life, gave me purpose and hope, and brought multiple blessings my way, including long life and many physical healings.
 
It has not always been easy.  Many times I have had to steadfastly reject doubt, stubbornly hold on to Scripture in the face of contrary physical evidence, or facts, and believe God, but in every case He was faithful and gave me victory.  By the way, facts may say one thing, such as you are sick, but God’s Truth trumps facts.  If God says you are healed, you are healed.  Remember: “Truth trumps facts.”
 
Here is a description, with photos, of when God twice healed me of cancer:  http://www.choicesforliving.com/cancerhealings.htm
 
I am glad I never listened to the anti-faith people, or I would be dead now.  They ought to go join some other religion.  Theirs is not biblical Christianity.
 
Many more testimonies of supernatural healings of mine and others can be found in Appendix 1 of my book, “The Power,” available free at http://www.choicesforliving.com/book/The-Power-1.pdf (page 111).
 
As a testimony of the reliability of God’s Word, I will be age 82 this year and I have not been inside a doctor’s office in almost 25 years, not even for a physical.  I have had some physical challenges, but faith in God’s Word always resolved them.
 
Would you like to be a part of the “Faith in Jesus Movement”?  It’s simple.  All you have to do is to make up your mind to believe Him and what He says (and act upon it), such as:
 
“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them” (Matthew 11:24).
 
{A caveat:  To work, what you ask for must be in God’s will, but His will is revealed in the Bible, and includes thousands of promises.  This doesn't necessarily mean that you can decide you want a new Cadillac, ask for it, and it will miraculous appear in your driveway, but stranger things have happened.  Don’t limit God.  He is limitless, and totally amazing!}
