They come to be healed. They are people afflicted with everything from paralysis, cancer to blindness. Some travel great distances for a promise to be healed instantly in the name of Jesus Christ. ABC's "Nightline" this week aired a report titled "Turning to Revivals for Healing." In the story, reporter Bill Weir examines the validity of the revivals and interviews evangelist Nathan Morris and revival presider Pastor John Kilpatrick at a revival event held recently in Mobile, Ala. Do miracles really take place at these healing revivals? Are people really cured? Or are they simply "mirages," as the report states, organized it seems with only one purpose — taking people's money?
"People brought all their sick to him and begged him to let the sick just touch the edge of his cloak, and all who touched him were healed."
Miracles are two things — they are real and they are rare. Only because there is a God is the miraculous possible.
