Jim Baker, No Not That One, Preaches the Most Horrific Healing on Demand Sermon

By       (Page 2 of 5 pages)   1 comment

This is a bizarre statement. The gifts are given as the Holy Spirit wills, not Jim Baker. 1Corinthians 12 teaches us that not everyone has every gift. Do all have the gifts of healing the bible asks? The answer implied in the original language was NO. These were rhetorical questions. Now let me be clear. God CAN still heal. God does still heal. The choice to however is His and His alone. Sometimes the person is called home regardless of our prayers. Despite this poor theology, not all of our prayers are answered in the affirmative. Jim Baker believes he already knows the will of God for every single person on the planet, saved and unsaved and that is to be healed. This is the sin of Lucifer, as Baker is usurping the role of God and denying His sovereignty.

"Mark 16 says they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover." - Jim Baker

This is listed as one of the signs that will accompany new believers but Mark 16:9-20 is widely believed to have been added to the text and not actually written by Mark. The language is inconsistent with the rest of the book. As such, we NEVER base doctrine solely on these verses. That said, the verse does not state that every person will be healed. Just that one sign is healing upon the laying of hands, indicating God can heal them. Not that He must.

"Unfortunately, in the church we have a lot of believers who don't believe. They have been taught the wrong things. If we had a three-day healing conference and you came the first day, received prayer and nothing happened, you came the second day, received prayer and nothing happened, you came the third day received prayer and were healed, guess what - God didn't change, you did." - Jim Baker

This is the usual refrain from the Bethelites who preach this nonsense. That we who insist that God is God, and His creation does not have His power, must somehow not believe. If they mean not believe in crackpot doctrine that tries to steal the power of God, yep, I do not believe. The bigger problem is this ridiculous example he gives. It is amazing that he does not see the logical disconnect he preaches because he staunchly preaches against works saying that people often think they must do something in order to receive their healing when that is exactly what he is teaching. This imaginary person had to do something in order for God to finally heal them on the last day of the conference, no? It is a cleverly disguised works theology that incorporates preaching against works!

"I was driving over here and just enjoying Him, singing in tongues." - Jim Baker

Really. I just included this because it gives us a window into how unstable his grasp on doctrine truly is. I am reminded of someone who once posted on Facebook gibberish and claimed that she was writing in tongues. We do not write in tongues. We do not sing in tongues. To claim so shows just a breathtakingly poor understanding of the bible. He follows this by citing Psalm 107:20 and Proverbs 4:20-22 as somehow proof of his teaching. The Psalm verse simply speaks to God healing the people of Israel, but we are not Israel. The Proverbs verse says that there is healing in His word and there is! But not on demand from the creation!

"It is always God's will for you to be healed, no matter how good, bad or ugly you are.

God is not up there waiting for your faith. He has already said yes. He died for your sins and in the same way, paid for your healing. If you listen to this and take it to heart, it will be impossible for you to stay sick." - Jim Baker
