Restoring Health Care as a Ministry eBook
Contrary to the secularized health care system of the western world, the Bible establishes health care as a ministry which falls under the jurisdiction of the priests:
"And THE PRIEST shall look at the mark on the skin of the body, and if the hair in the infection has turned white and the infection appears to be deeper than the skin of his body...he shall pronounce..." (Lev. 13:3).
Abdicating Health Care - Was it a Wise Move?
When the Church decided to secularize health care, it removed from the education of western doctors and nurses, and from their practices and policies, God, the Bible, and Spirit-anointed revelation, as well as the anointing of the Holy Spirit to heal. Thus, traditional health care went off track with resulting death and destruction to the patients under its care.
Today, God is raising up an alternative approach to vibrant health which incorporates the Bible, Spirit-anointed revelation, the healing power of the Holy Spirit and several biblically-grounded natural lifestyle practices.
The Christian must explore, understand and avail himself of all biblical and Spirit-anointed approaches to vibrant health. Applying these could save your life, as well as the lives of your friends, your families and your loved ones.
The book Restoring Health Care as a Ministry evaluates 31 health care modalities, both traditional and alternative, to see which are compatible with biblical principles. The book concludes with the suggestion of a methodology which integrates biblical, non-invasive, natural, and spiritual approaches to health care.
Our prayer and goal is that God will raise up Christian Lifestyle Centers in every community. These centers will offer biblical, spiritual and natural approaches to vibrant living.
Be prepared to have your world turned upside down. If you are not, then please do not read this book.
