Reader Gloria Copeland claims you can have immunity from the Flu by repeating “I’ll never have the flu”! "Just keep saying, 'I'll never have the flu, I'll never have the flu.' Inoculate yourself with the word of God." “We got a duck season, a deer season, but we don’t have a flu season,” she said in a video posted to Facebook last week. “And don’t receive it when somebody threatens you with, ‘Everyone’s getting the flu!’
” This word of faith teaching from the Copeland’s is false and sickness does not equate to a lack of faith in the person suffering. Notice that Paul told Timothy to use a little bit of wine in his water to stop his stomach ailment: 1 Timothy 5:23 Stop drinking only water, and use a little wine because of your stomach and your frequent illnesses. He did not simply tell him to pray a repetitiousness prayer, he advised him on how to heal his sickness through a form of medicine.
