Get out of the “Blame Game!”

Last week and the week before we talked about the fallacies of the “100%” criticism. The “100%” criticism claims that we have no right to teach the biblical doctrines of faith and God’s will to heal if we don’t demonstrate them

Do You Get 100% Results Ministering Healing?

In part 1, part 2, and part 3 on the “new faith movement,” we looked at how today’s “faith movement” tends to differ with many past faith and healing movements. Some of the main points were that the “new faith

The Answer To Job’s Question
