If a God from any religious belief healed everyone, that particular religion would have a lower number of representatives in hospitals, when compared to others. That's not the case. In fact, in a prayer study performed, those who were NOT prayed for did better overall than those who knew they were being prayed for AND those who were being prayed for yet didn't know it. There is no conclusive evidence that says that the prayers from any faith or denomination within the faith are effective with any more efficiency than just luck.
If he is a qualified doctor, with the knowledge and skills, maybe he'll be able to heal some people.
God is certainly able to heal, that's for sure. God works through the hands of doctors, but healing miracles do occur today. I was miraculously healed before and have known other people who were also healed.
For His own sovereign reasons, healing may not come right away. Sometimes it is one's faith that plays a part, and other times there may be a purposeful delay. It may even be that the most important healing that needs to take place is not physical but one that is within. However, whether or not one receives the healing right away or at all, God will give the grace to go through it. The main thing is that when this life is over, we will be made completely whole and restored through Christ Jesus.
God only heals those who ask to be healed.
Also, it depends on what you mean by "heal."
If you mean spiritual healing, then the person has to believe they are a spiritual being and they have to "know" that God can heal them. Christ showed the way.
If you mean physical healing, then the person has to "know" that God has the power to heal them.
That "knowingness" is called "faith." If a person has any doubts, then the desired healing will fail.
Many people don't want to be healed. For the physically crippled or diseased, they cling to their infirmity as a badge of self-righteousness (ego). For the spiritual crippled (practically everyone on this planet), many don't believe in such things, and it has been said that such is the only sin that cannot be forgiven. You have to admit you have a spiritual self before it can be healed.
Ultimately yes. We are all His children. Like spoilt children, we run away but He is all-forgiving and simply awaits our return.
Healing is really the bliss of union or the merging of the individual Soul with God. before this, one also gets glimpses. Loving thoughts.
I wrote an very interesting hub on this recently called "The way God heals"

Are you a Christian who believes in healing?Personally, I do. But for some reason, there is a debate in the church about whether God still wants to heal us today. I don't understand why someone would believe that Jesus would be willing to heal physical sicknesses and diseases when He was here on...

Do you believe God can heal any disease?If, we believe and ask by faith. The woman with the issue of blood suffered for 12 years, she believed by faith and she was healed, and so was many more like her then and today.

Why do so many people look to people for answers that people don't have?"What does God look like?" type of questions really concern me. Which do you find more concerning...the one who asks the question or the one who answers like they know?

Does God answer ALL prayers?God says that if you ask 'anything' in His name, He will do it - according to His words: "Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it." (John 14:13-14) Do you believe...
