Why are people who wear hearing aids and CIs not accepting of their deafness compared to those who would be healed by Jesus?
Are people in wheelchairs less accepting of their condition because they use devices as opposed to waiting for healing from Jesus?
I don't think there is anything wrong with using devices to make your life easier. It doesn't mean you don't accept that you aren't deaf. I think the problem is more that other people don't accept that they are deaf!
I am hearing, but this struck a cord with me. I'm wheelchair bound, and I have been most of my life. I really hate it when people try to push their own agendas on others. Being healed by God is a very personal thing for someone, and I don't think we have a right to judge for someone what is good for them. If we are healed by God, wonderful, but if we're not, that's okay, too. We should accept ourselves for who we are. Afterall, we are all unique!
