I have a relative who recently found out she has a very serious health problem. In her search for answers and peace of mind, she came across an alleged “faith-healer” named Andrew Wommack.
Seems like a potential false prophet, but because he has a big following and airs daily on TBN, he has some sort of reputability that she’s buying into…
She’s now convinced that miraculous healing is guaranteed and promised to us in the Bible (for example, Mark 26:17-18, Isaiah 53:4-5). I don’t believe this is true. There are plenty of cases where people are not healed despite prayer. And ultimately we all reach the end of our life and will die of some form of sickness or health failure. If this guaranteed healing were true, no one would ever die.
I’m concerned if she isn’t healed, she’ll lose her faith in Jesus.
Do you know of any verses I could point her to? Or have you heard of this Andrew Wommack guy? Any advice on how to handle this?
