Too many people in the church carry falsehood: if people are sick or suffering, they must have hidden sin.”

The worldly version of this is: “If you are suffering, you must have done something to deserve it.”

The Bible never says this. Today, Chara’s friend and mentor Laura Chica sits down and unpacks why we believe this and what the Bible really says about our sickness and sufferings.

Scriptures Referenced: John 9, Job, Galatians 6:7-9, Proverbs 16:25, 1 John 1:9,
