As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Why shouldn't Christians be Healed in the Name of Jesus?

    Jesus healed and commanded His disciples to heal. So why shouldn't Christians be healed in the name of Jesus?

  • #2
    First, find true followers of Jesus. Then, you won't worry about how many are or are not healed. (they have (as a GIFT of GRACE with SALVATION) immeasurable Joy, unspeakable Peace, and True Righteousness, as written throughout the New Testament) (no matter what the circumstances, including being beaten, arrested and imprisonment, etc, as in the Bible) .

      So if a Christian in a wheelchair shows up where the true followers of Jesus are, there would be no healing? Surely the true believers would heal the person in the name of Jesus.

      Jesus came that we may have life and have it abundantly.

      John 10:10 ASV American Standard Version
      The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.

      And Jesus told us that believers would do the works that He had done.

      John 14:12. ASV American Standard Version
      Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto the Father.

      Since Jesus healed the lame, then true followers (believers) also should do likewise.

        Indeed your premise is true but certain qualifications must be met and God can reveal to us what some of these qualifications are.

        Perhaps God has already provided you some understanding on what some of these qualifications are in this regard which will make you topic more spiritually deep than what is on the surface in regard to healing (restoration).

        God bless you,

          They SHOULD BE, and often ARE.

            My experience is that churches VERY rarely experience a healing in the name of Jesus.

            What churches or parts of the world often see healing in the name of Jesus?

              Moreso overseas, where there's no Doctors, Social Security, Insurance, Visa, or Discover Card.

              Here in the U.S. the FIRST CALL we make is 911.

                Ok, now this makes sense.

                  THE OTHER ISSUE is that OVERT MIRACLES OF GOD carry a BURDEN OF RESPONSIBILITY for those who witness them. They must be handled PROPERLY (understood, and witnessed to as a testimony of God's POWER) otherwise the Pearls before SWINE situation happens.

                  The REASON Jesus didn't do miracles in his home town, was that He (by the Holy Spirit) KNEW that the people there would NOT handle them appropriately, and would be guilty of trampling the TRUTH of God underfoot, adding to their condemnation. His FAMILY, in fact, really didn't know Him for WHO HE WAS.

                  In a day in the U.S. church, where the color of the carpet in the sanctuary is MORE IMPORTANT than being a minister for HIM, that we don't see the Miraculous is easily explained.

                    This explains it quite well.

                    It is fundamentally necessary and healthy for Christians to acknowledge that God foreknows nothing uncertainly, but that He foresees, purposes, and does all things according to His own immutable, eternal and infallible will. This bombshell knocks "free-will" flat…

                      Scripture please.

                        So you're a senior member at CARM with over 16,000 posts and you don't believe in healing in the name of Jesus?

                          Those snakes looked docile, possible drugged, possible already milked of their venom. Snake handling alone does not make a Godly ministry.

                            Red bolding mine.

                            Do not misrepresent what I have said. Show any post where I said that I don't believe in healing in the name of Jesus.

                            How long I have been here and how many posts I have been has nothing to do with my question.

                            I asked you for scripture, but since you think the bible is tampered with when it contradicts you, I doubt it will be forthcoming.

                            Next time, just ask what I believe instead of gross misrepresentation.

                            Mark 16:15-20

                            15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
                            16 The one who believes and is baptized will be saved, but the one who does not believe will be condemned.
                            17 These signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new languages;
                            18
                            they will pick up snakes with their hands,
                            and whatever poison they drink will not harm them; they will place their hands on the sick and they will be well.”
                            19 After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, he was taken up into heaven and sat down at the right hand of God.
                            20 They went out and proclaimed everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through the accompanying signs.]

                              A few years ago I prayed for Kevin in Columbia SC when he was maybe 12 to 14 years old and had down syndrome. I prayed to God the Father for miraculous healing and that he be made whole in the name of Jesus Christ. And then later the Holy Spirit told me in my mind that he had been healed.

                              Praise the Lord for miraculous healing. Amen
