If you were Satan and your goal is to destroy as many lives as you could, what are the two institutions you could attack that would destroy more lives than wars and natural disasters combined?

Phase One: Medicine

If I were Satan, I would capture the medical industry and make it mine. For what other of man’s institutions could potentially inflict more harm?

I would infiltrate medical colleges and teach students to treat disease symptoms, rather then teach them how to heal the sick.

I would teach medical students that chronic disease is the result of natural manifestation, and disclaim any correlation between disease and one’s spiritual state of being.

I would create chemical drugs with lethal side effects, and tell medical students they must use only my drugs to treat their patients disease symptoms. I would tell students that natural substances can be harmful to the body and should not be used or trusted for treatment of the sick.

I would find greedy men who could care less about the well-being of people, and set up a drug enterprise designed to keep sick people sick. I would advertise my drugs on TV so people will ask their doctors to prescribe them.

I would take natural body conditions like pregnancy, acid reflux, hormonal imbalance, sinus infections, high blood pressure, digestive disorders, osteoporosis, diabetes and make them a disease. That way, I could find more uses for my drugs.

I would be clever when using medical terms, so people will begin to believe their body cannot be trusted. I would use terms like, heart attack, spastic colon, and kidney failure.

Next I would mislead patients into believing they have a disease discovered through diagnosis; when in truth all they received is a specific diagnosis with a name. This will make it sound like the doctor has found a disease, and people can be “diagnosed” just in time to take a new drug of mine for the rest of their life.

Next I would use man’s government to protect my medical interests and drug industry. I would set up a Food and Drug Administration, and use it to deny citizens any form of real healing. I would use this FDA to my advantage by making it unlawful for anyone to make health claims without scientific proof. Of course, I would also control the researchers, and medical doctors who publish results of research, so results are kept in my favor.

I would refuse my agents to investigate any claims that suggest a correlation between vaccines and disease and death rates.

Phase Two: Church

If I were Satan, I would fill pulpits in churches with pastors who teach that God no longer heals the sick like people read about in the Bible. I would have these pastors teach that healing must be instantaneous to be called a miracle.

I would disguise the original meanings of the words “heal,” and “save” recorded in the Bible, so their full, true meaning and application is not understood.

I would put fear of persecution and public ridicule in the hearts of church leaders were they to teach that God actively intervenes in this physical world.

In this way I can deny God’s glory of healing by those who bear the mark of His Spirit and wear the name of His Son.

Over time, there will be very little knowledgeable and effective spiritual resistance to my induced sicknesses and disease. People will come to put more faith in medical knowledge than in the God of knowledge.

In this way, I can kill many millions of people because most people are raised up to respect the word and advise of medical doctors and preachers.

If I were Satan and wanted to destroy as many lives as I could, this is what I would do and how I would do it.

Greetings in Christ,

As a people, Christians are sorry lot to look upon. The Bible plainly teaches that physical, emotional, and spiritual healing is available through Jesus Christ. And yet, when you survey most Christian congregations, the number of “saints” with chronic illness, is about the same as those chronically ill outside of the Body of Christ. Is it any wonder most church pews are empty come Sunday morning?

Truth is, Christians today are caught in a kind of vise that squeezes and tests their faith. One side of the vise is God’s Holy Word, from which our faith is derived. The other side of the vise is Church Doctrine, which in most cases teaches adherents that God has ended divine healing in the Church.

So it should come as no surprise that millions of people of faith abandon their faith in God to heal, and leave the Church altogether. Also, it is no surprise that Church leaders urge those in their flock who are sick to consult with a secular physician, without a thought of directing them to God first.

As the author of God’s healing Word, it has become my passion to put God back into healing, and healing back into the Church. I hope you will join me.

You may have been hurt spiritually by you Church. You may wish to work to educate leaders in your church on what the Bible teaches about physical healing. Or you may just want to fellowship with others whose faith in God to heal is strong. Whatever the case, welcome to this public message forum.

There once was a man who wanted to teach himself how to sky dive? He bought a parachute at a garage sale, leased a plane and when the time came, literally jumped into his new adventure. As the man was free-falling toward earth on his very first attempt, he pulled the ripcord only to discover it was not attached to the parachute. Looking down at his fate, he was surprised to see a woman shooting up from below with a burned-out match held between her thumb and fore-finger.

As they rushed by one another, the man yelled, “Whadayaknow about parachutes?”

The woman replied back, “Nothing. Whadayaknow about gas stoves?”

The fable above illustrates how many Christians act when faced with life-threatening illness. They ignorantly turn to man for relief rather then to God.

That we seek counsel from man and not God in such times speaks volumes of how ignorant we are as God’s children. We lack teaching to recognize chronic illness for what it often is, a spiritual attack against our body.

Medical science acknowledges that 80% of all diseases, both psychological and biological, are psychosomatically induced. In other words, the source of most disease begins within our minds or spirits as thought—a perfect place for Satan to do his bidding.

But, what the world calls psychosomatic, God knows as an unloving spirit from the kingdom of darkness. Behind every psychosomatic disease lies an unloving spirit, planting thoughts of fear, despair, rejection, anxiety, worry, and whatever else Satan can get us to accept as true.

Yes, evil can and does exist simultaneously within our spirit, right along with the Spirit of God, if we allow it. The deception begins as the unloving spirit whispers a thought promoting unrest, “I do not like myself.” If we listen to its voice, if we accept the lie, our soul becomes polluted with the same mind-set (I do not like myself).

Our body, operating through the limbic system, then begins to conform itself into that spiritual image, re-enforcing it both biologically and psychologically.

Examples of psychosomatically-induced disease can include high blood pressure, hardening of the arteries, infertility, irritable bowel syndrome, angina, fibromyalgia, Graves disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, asthma, Crohn’s disease, obesity, multiple sclerosis, gastroesophageal reflux disease, and many, many more.

God created us perfectly, but sin changes us. Every thought we have, be it good or bad, produces a chemical and neurological response within.

So long as our thoughts have their origin in a loving spirit, the response in our body helps to maintain homeostasis (balance). When the origin of our beliefs originates from an unloving spirit, the response creates imbalance in our body, and we become sickly if we accept and live the lie. All of us have our spiritual strengths and weaknesses. It is part of our humanity. Temptation is a part of our daily lives as the forces of good and evil do battle for our soul. Satan knows our weaknesses and wastes little time in attacking us at those points.

If your weakness lies in feelings of low self-esteem, Satan knows how to capitalize on it to cause you suffering. If you have difficulty in forgiving others, Satan knows how to use that defect to make your body rack with pain. If you struggle with worry and fear, Satan knows how to use these emotions to create tumors in your stomach and colon. He is a master at doing this.

Drug manufacturers promote drugs by saying they offer temporary relief of disease symptoms, but they do not and cannot deal with the spiritual roots of the disease. Satan knows this. His plan is called “disease management,” not “healing.”

Satan knows that by keeping you in agony, your faith in God could waiver or break. But even if you do not wavier in faith, Satan’s greatest weapon against God is taking you to an early grave.

This is what makes Christianity so excitng, so very much a living faith, because it is God who heals spiritually rooted disease through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
