Since a 1906 revival in Los Angeles, people around the world say they’ve been cured by the Holy Spirit after preachers with the Gift of Healing laid their hands on them. Skeptics scoff, but science’s explanations are kind of vague. So what’s going on here?
Listening to this podcast, with religion in general on my mind, was extremely challenging.
Since a pentecostal revival in Jerusalem, people around the world say they've been saved by the Holy Spirit after Jesus and the Gift of Salvation was bestowed on them. Skeptics scoff, but science's explanations are kind of vague. So what's going on here?
Some days, the answer is "faith."
Other days, I feel duped.
But what I found most interesting was that anyone, of any religion or non, could listen to this podcast, replace "Faith Healing" with whatever they believe, and the outcome would be the same: mankind taking advantage of others, for the purpose of personal gain. Yet, so few question or consider or even imagine that they might be wrong, that their beliefs and answers and absolute truths may very well be a hoax.
Because to question another's belief is expected, even divine; questioning one's own is weak and immature, even wrong.
Which just sounds scary to me.
