I feel your grief over the death of your friend. Perhaps then this is not an appropriate time to ask my question, so I hope my question is not offensive or intrusive on your time of grief. Yet on the other hand it takes the question out of the world of theological abstractions, to the place where as they say the rubber meets the road.
A few years ago, I dialoged with you on this blog about healing (July 25 2010). Your position was that God wants to heal Godly people. When I pressed you asking why this seemed to be the exception rather than the rule you said:
“It is because is terribly wrong, because the Body in America is in a very poor condition, because we are full of unbelief and the world, because God’s glory will only rest so far in the midst of sin and corruption — among a host of other reasons. I would encourage you to read my 1991 book Whatever Happened to the Power of God for more on this.”
Yet now we add your friend to the list of evangelical Godly men like Ravenhill with his stroke and Billy Graham with his Parkinson’s disease, who have not been healed. Has this affected your view on healing?
I tend to lean towards Norman Geisler’s take on this. His position is that there are no unconditional promises for healing. How do we know? Because if this were the case no one would ever die. For every time some conditioned threatened to take a life, we would call the elders and pray and they would keep on living.
