Charisma Magazine Says You Can Cure Autism

Last week we learned that we don’t need flu shots because of Jesus. This week brings us more good news! Autism has been cured!

That’s right, with a little faith, a little name it and claim it, autism can be a thing of the past.

the Spirit of God taught me years ago with our own son’s deliverance and healing was to first take my authority over a severe autistic spirit that plagued him. I did as He said, and right then and there, the demonic fit stopped and never returned.

You too can cure people of autism if you can be as awesome as this person. Get a load of this line:

The tactics of the spirit of fear are to frighten and cause the parents or others in authority over the child, regardless of age, to back off from the process and to enter into doubt and unbelief. But if you, their caregiver and protector will not falter in your spiritual authority during this process, their deliverance and healing will manifest.

In other words, if your child has autism, that’s entirely your fault for having such pathetic faith.

Wow. How encouraging and edifying. Do you feel the grace and liberty at work?

This is the sort of drivel that passes for doctrinal teaching in our day.

Much charismatic faith healing talk is merely more burden upon already hurting people.

Looking to God for healing is one thing; shaming people with autistic kids because they don’t have enough faith is despicable.

Authors of such articles strike me as Job’s friends. They address somebody else’s pain by lecturing them, telling them they deserve it because their faith is so weak.

We should all be in a state of mourning over the state of the church today.

  1. Looking to God for healing is one thing; shaming people with autistic kids because they don’t have enough faith is despicable.

    I have to wonder about the faith of those who are “shaming” the parents with the autistic kids – why isn’t THEIR faith sufficient to deal with the situation instead of pointing the finger of blame at those who are suffering?

    Peter didn’t expect the beggar at the temple to have enough faith when he made his “silver and gold I do not have…” statement – he didn’t accuse the beggar of lacking faith and leave him where he was. He pulled the beggar to his feet. Any faith exercised at the time was Peter’s.

  2. Many of Christ’s miracles were not dependent upon the faith of the one being healed. The whole concept is twisted and it hurts people.

  3. I think the main proof text that would be used to cover the “lack of faith” claim would be:

    Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

    This refers to people in Nazareth, where Jesus grew up.

    I suggest that the issue was NOT people lacking faith going to Jesus so He couldn’t do anything for them (because they had insufficient faith) – it would be more like people not willing to go to Him for help because He was only “the carpenter’s son” whose mother and siblings still lived among them.
