Do you think you have the authority or privilege to jerk Jesus around? Some do.

We wish.

    Yes! Well, I think quite a lot of the successful “miracles” could be achieved using psychological manipulation, i.e. “we should be healed, otherwise we lost faith” complex. I was curious about that question once when I was watching a healing session: can Jesus really be told what to do, hereby suggesting that, somehow, the people doing the “healings” control God. I think God can work in wonderful ways in people’s lives, however everything should be tested.
