What’s the oil about?
Medicinal?
Church understood it for centuries as being sacramental
Symbolic: Healed by ‘Prayer of Faith’ and not by the anointing.
Symbolism of being set apart.
It’s important and significant, but unclear.
What is more important is the issue of prayer.
Paul’s own prayer for healing was not granted ().
What saves? Prayers of Faith- not the oil. The oil is merely a symbolic gesture of singling out the person.
Vs. 16: James is encouraging people to pray confess the types of sins that may contribute to the sin, or hinder the healing.
Confess your sins together: Methodist movement in 17th century: Be open and vulnerable.
New Testament Church:
Role of elders is important: Shepherds of healing
Confession to one another
Verse 16: Whole Church is involved in ministry of healing
Square pegs belong!
Cant make it in.
With a proper diet, moderate and consistent exercise, and the development of a healthy mind-set, I should be able to fit in fine.
