Belief or Unbelief that is the question.

I've watched many healing testimonies. It seems like there are far more outside of the church than inside, and I think I've figured it out. America and specifically American Christianity™ is about titles, or personal impressions, it's not really about Jesus. You may smirk at that, but hear me out. In churches across this land, the majority, not all, but the majority of people look towards a title or reputation as a source of strength, power, or relationship with God. They will not hesitate to ask the pastor for healing, or someone in the church that has a reputation for healing, but a "normal" person they shun. The "normal" person will pray with them and in their minds they doubt, they don't believe it will happen, and they get what they believe.

It's a shame because a lot of people I know that walk in healing, (incidentally, we all walk in healing we all as believers have the same power through the Holy Spirit, and I know some don't believe healing is for today, and that's cool, I respect their decision regardless), look like "normal" people. It's a shame that someone that God has worked through miraculously to heal thousands could walk off the street into most churches in this country and ask to move in healing in members of the churches and be shunned or laughed at, and only heal a few if any.

So why can more people in the streets, that are not even believers, be healed than in many, many churches around this country?

He went away from there and came to His hometown, and His disciples followed Him. When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard Him were astonished. “Where did this man get these things?” they said. “What is this wisdom given to Him, and how are these miracles performed by His hands? Isn’t this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And aren’t His sisters here with us?” So they were offended by Him.

Then Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown, among his relatives, and in his household.” So He was not able to do any miracles there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. And He was amazed at their unbelief.
