Charles Capps, Word of Faith teacher, mimics Copeland as he teaches power of our words to create reality saying “You can have what you say! “ “ I don’t deny the existence of disease. I deny the right of that disease to exist in this body, because I’m the Body of Christ” (The Tongue p. 43.) “This is not theory, It is fact. It is spiritual law. It works every time it is applied correctly.” His wife got cancer and was medically treated. So where's the power that is claimed for his own personal miracle.
Ruth Carter Stapleton, ( Faith Healing sister of former US President Jimmie Carter) believed in faith healing and refused medical treatment for cancer. She died in 1983 of the disease.
Ruth Heflin who was 60 years died of cancer Sept.15, 2000. Yet she firmly believed “I suddenly knew how easy it is to raise the dead and to heal all manner of sickness and disease.. how easy it is to see blind eyes open and deaf ears unstopped” (Harvest Glory her 1999 autobiography).
R.W. Schambach, is one of the favorite Faith Healer's on LeSea and TBN. He has said “You don’t have any problems, all you need is faith in God.” and on TBN recently he stated “God will heal you”. But its reported that he got a quadruple heart bypass from doctor (not doctor Jesus). What do those who hold to the faith teaching say about their own leaders doing this? It is for the most part ignored.
What about their healing, their confession is not their possession. It's not working for them either. I know some may mean well and naively teach this but it more harmful to believe in fantasy than to face the reality of truth and have time to do something about it.
Why did none of the people who are deathly sick call for Oral Roberts or go to a Benny Hinn crusade? Why didn't they send for a prayer cloth from Parsley or get a trinket from Marilyn Hickey. If what they teach is true none of them should be sick for long, they should all have supernatural healing.
Why not? Maybe they know something that you don't? They do not trust their own welfare into their hands of faith. There are many Word Faith teachers that are getting medical attention. Instead of being healed by faith, they go to medical doctors to get their bodies repaired like anyone else. None of these folks got a “miracle” or received “divine healing” directly from the hand of God or themselves. They did what every person with common sense would do, they got medical help.
