The Ministry of Healing

Since 1948, close to a decade before Ghana’s independence the classical definition of health as proposed by the World Health Organization (WHO) has been in operation. WHO defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity. This well-known definition proposed by the Hippocratic School has faced many criticisms, mainly from its seemingly unrealistic possibility of attainment in this life or even in the hopeful unavowed life to come. But in reality, how possible is it for someone who once suffered from a particular ailment, like Alzheimer’s disease, to recover entirely from it and to claim complete and sound healing in body and mind?

We hear the many stories of how Jesus spent more time healing the sick than preaching. Therefore, it is no argument how badly humans require healing, and so will go all lengths to find it; healing for the soul, healing to mend a broken spirit, and healing for the feeble body.

Many are the conspiracy theories surrounding the new kid on the block, the coronavirus pandemic; so much for a kid, uh? A backfired bioengineered biological weapon from the Chinese to the western world? A genuine pandemic as the former pandemics that has hit humanity in times past? The plaque, cholera and the flu, they haven’t been any friendlier. Through all of these, the ministry of healing continues to go on, healing found in the herbalists’ pot, in the physicians’ prescription, the surgeons’ incision and the Midas touch of the man of God.

Centuries have passed by and diseases still live among us. They live in the Asian and Arabian societies with all the indigenous spices, in the African home filled with herbs tried over generations, even in the western culture that has birthed ultramodern state-of-the-art technology and inventions in medicine. Rare, contagious, genetic, congenital and fatal diseases of all kinds and shapes have dared to evolve with the human race, with all of its complexities, to stay relevant; playing the role of “determinant” in the game of survival, in some cases revolutionizing the entire livelihood of the “higher animals” and bringing them to their knees.
