If you’re looking for guides to teach you how to walk by sight, and to doubt if God loves you in Christ, you really need to listen to Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. On the other hand if you prefer to live by faith and not by sight, and don’t want to doubt God’s love for you in Christ, then you probably shouldn’t consult Bill Johnson and Randy Clark.
Bill Johnson and Randy Clark were asked why miracles and healing are so important today. Bill Johnson gave an answer that really doesn’t rally anyone to stretch their faith, or live by faith at all. He talked about how God has the power and resources to heal.
“If you have resources and you don’t take care of a need, then your love is questioned.”
Bill Johnson is giving us room to question God’s love if he doesn’t heal us, even though he has the power to heal. Forget about stretching our faith and calling us to walk by faith and not by sight. (2 Corinthians 5:7) Forget about saying that hope that is seen is no hope at all. (Romans 8:24) What Jesus did on the cross isn’t really a trump card that proves God does love us in Christ.
Randy Clark also gave a resounding call to live by sight and not by faith. He said that without miracles and healing, the gospel for some is just a moral code or philosophy. Further Clark gave emphasis to miracles and healing as THE way God shows his glory. That really is a top rate tactic on his part to get us to live by sight. If he wanted to get us to live by faith, he might suggest that the gospel is the very power of God unto salvation. (Romans 1:16)
So if you want the top advocates for living by sight, and doubting if God loves you in Christ, listen to and read all of the materials you can by Bill Johnson and Randy Clark. It’s rather interesting that these two men known for their amazing faith, are actually better at promoting the exact opposite.
