Calvary BFC
What is the relationship between sickness and sin? Job’s friends thought that it was a direct relationship, but they were wrong. The modern world thinks that there isn’t much of a connection, but that is also wrong. James 5:13-20 helps us discover the actual connection between sin and sickness. Knowing this connection helps us thrive in life and helps us help each other.
