Is using healing alternatives unchristian?
In the Pentecostal mind set, which is not my mind set, healing is viewed as fundamentally Christian. However, all the things that they, and other Christian groups that believe in “miracles” claimed as Holy Spirit intervention, can be and are duplicated in divergent sects; some Christian, some not; some religious, some not. They see unusual events and read into that event the Holy Spirit.
A true Christian miracle is not an unusual event, but a suspension of natural laws, a suspension of the way things are created and upheld by the creator. Example – The raising from the grave of a several day dead man was a miracle. Or the feeding of thousands of people with a few little fishes and a few loafs of bread and to top that off several baskets of left overs was a miricle.
Greg Braden has published a video from the medicine-less hospital in China. You can actually see on ultra sound a tumor in the bladder shrink and disappear in less than 5 minutes. You can see this on you tube.
This was a non Christian, even a non religious, event. This can be duplicated in many healing modalities, Christian and non Christian.
Unusual? Maybe. Is it a miracle in the literal sense? Since it is diversely repeatable, no. It is not the Holy Spirit intervening either.
It may be people tapping into a metaphysical reality that positively affects physical reality. The Christian may view this as the metaphysical reality which God created being used to affect the physical reality the God created. How can that be unchristian?
In the Bible Salomon referenced this principle. He said, “As a man thinketh in his his heart, so is he.” The metaphysical, thinking, effects the the physical, the man. This in general is in healings like augmented reconnective style healing that I do in San Antonio, TX. The metaphysical affects the physical.
The non Christian may view it as one dimension of the universe affecting another.
Whatever name may be put on it, the naming of it is a superficial distraction. It is best viewed as the way things are. Just tap into it, and witness what is.
This type healing may only be viewed as unusual because most Christians and non Christians have been conditioned not to expect things outside the five senses.
If we were people who expected it and tried it, these healings might be viewed as usual, with the occasional need to consult a physician.
Remember Jesus said the one who continues to be sick is in need of a physician. Did Jesus maybe expect the usual to be these healings and only the cases that continued should to be addressed by doctors? Maybe the unchristian thing would be the rejection of the possibility of what we now call alternative healings.
Think about it. This perspective may take a little time to sink in.
