This came up on another thread and rather than posting my thoughts there, since it was off-topic, I thought I'd start a thread on it. Consider this verse: On the other thread, someone said that somebody in their SS voiced the view that this verse does not apply to the church today. I tend to agree. After all, this was a specific promise given to Israel, was it not? Even if we are called by God and this verse is for today, then what land is God going to heal? I'm really interested in others' views on this, all views.
