    Francis MacNutt is another writer on the Christian healing ministry who associates sin with disability. MacNutt explicitly names disabilities as a sickness and goes on to say ‘Our physical sickness, far from being a redemptive blessing, is often a sign that we are not totally redeemed, not whole at a spiritual level’. Does this mean separation of body vs soul in demonization? Robert Borders
