14. Not only Jesus can bring back the dead

ACTS

Peter raises Tabitha from the dead.

9:36 Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did.

9:37 And it came to pass in those days, that she was sick, and died: whom when they had washed, they laid her in an upper chamber.

9:38 And forasmuch as Lydda was nigh to Joppa, and the disciples had heard that Peter was there, they sent unto him two men, desiring him that he would not delay to come to them.

9:39 Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them.

9:40 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.

9:41 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.

 

So Jesus can imbue anyone with the power to raise the dead. There are a lot of women "full of good works" that have died. Why don't Jesus appoint a few more life-givers and raise them from the dead? How about Linda Strauss?

 

"... she was sick and died" Who said she died? Who pronounced her dead? Maybe she was in a coma. Maybe she was asleep. Who really knows? Yet it's accepted without question that she was dead and came back to life.

 

What was her life like after being brought back from the dead?

 

Benny Hinn, a throuoghly discredited faith healer has a lot of "testimonials" too.

 

 

Such nonesense!
