should a christian be sick? is it possible?
Good response in seunfolake; but sometimes it is possible for Christians to get sick or experience some illness even after using wisdom and obeying the natural laws of hygiene and health habits. This is why I appreciate mlks_baby's detailed response. I'm sure Paul observed all the natural laws and health habits he knew how (especially because as a Jew he should have applied Jewish moral and dietary ethics that keeps them healthy); yet he was sick at some point (Gal. 4:13).
There are sicknesses that are biologically related and environmentally causative. However, there are sicknesses that are spiritually determined - especially when the enemy wants to resist a deeply devoted and fruitful servant of God. On the whole, thank God we have an unshakable victory in Jesus Christ.
is like saying can a xtian fail?yes it is possible,if that xtian does not prepare for the exam he will fail gallantly .we all know that ''a proper preparation prevents a poor performance''a xtian can even be poor if he or she does not obey the principles of creating wealth which are 1,save some portion of income
5,buy what you need and not what u want,and so on
. a xtian should'nt be sick,but it is possible for a xtian to sick if he or she disobeys natural laws like not having enough rest,not eating well or at the right time,and so on.a xtian must not be sick if he or she applies wisdom to the right thing with his body system.
every thing in life is govern by principles, any attempt not to abide by the principles, one will definitely face the consequences .Though,God has given every xtian the ability not to fail,sick or be poor.if only we as xtians apply wisdom.
for example,i've not fallen sick for the past 8yrs,i do not only believe that by His stripes I am healed,I also carefully observe my body system,to rest,eat and sleep at the right time.
