“If Jesus came into our world merely to heal sick people, then he failed woefully” says Fr Kelvin Ugwu
Catholic priest, Fr. Kelvin Ugwu, has shared a think-piece about Jesus Christ and his true mission on earth.
In a Facebook post, Ugwu stated that if Jesus came into the world to only heal the sick, then he failed woefully because he didn’t heal every sick person, and those people he healed still died.
According to him, the core message of Jesus Christ is salvation and healing and miracles are merely an avenue to demonstrate his power to save.
See what he wrote below;
“The hard truth that you may not want to hear is that if Jesus came into our world merely to heal sick people, then he failed woefully.
You know why?
Even during his days, he did not heal all the sick people. He could have simply removed sickness, but he did not. And till tomorrow, we will still have sick people with us. And you reading this, you will also fall sick at one point in time.
Healings or miracles as we see them today were never his primary reason for coming into our world.
In fact, those he cured of different sicknesses and diseases, still fell sick and they still died.
Lazarus that he raised from the dead, still died.
Christ healed because he is God and because if he has power to give you salvation, what is sickness that he can’t cure? So, all his miracles were to point you to believe that he can give you salvation.
Those of you that think the Christian message is all about miracles and healings, you have been deceived.
Those of you that run to churches because in their advert they drew wheelchair, women giving birth or carrying babies, and other things should know that church is not hospital. Even your so called minister claiming to be doing the healing has a private doctor. Go and check!
It is the economic situation of your country that is necessitating all those abuses. The day you will have good healthcare, you won’t see any of those.
The central message of Christ is SALVATION. This is why, of all the miracles he did, the thief he promised paradise on the cross, will always stand out.”
