Did God answer prayer for healing? A Christian cancer patient pray for healing, but God did not heal him and he dies after 1-2 years of radiation therapy, what does this mean? The pastor told the patient's family that it's God will to heal or not heal, dying is not a tragedy for a saved Christian, his soul is saved, he goes to heaven a better place than the earthly world. This is a typical answer, anyone also can say that. How do we really know God's will to heal or not to heal? Is everything supernatural bull-shit?
