13. Casie Kyle says, “That’s not Biblical,”                                    but of course RELICS are Biblical.

In response to Jesus heals through relics, Casie Kyle says, “That’s not Biblical” but of course it is Biblical and here are some Biblical examples. 

Cloths, bones and shadows used in healing!

...So extraordinary were the mighty deeds God accomplished at the hands of Paul that when face CLOTHS or aprons that touched his skin were applied to the sick, their diseases left them and the evil spirits came out of them” (Acts 19:11-12). 

“So they cast the dead man into the grave of Elisha, and everyone went off. But when the man came in contact with the BONES of Elisha, he came back to life and rose to his feet”(2 Kgs. 13:21).  “At least his [Peter] SHADOW should fall on one or another of them” (Acts 5:15). 

There are people who put limits on God by saying that God cannot operate through inanimate objects, and yet the Bible says otherwise.   For some people it is an honest mistake, simply because they do not know that objects are used in healing in the Bible.  Others know that the use of relics are in the Bible and yet deny it.   When you quote the verses, that show God healing through face cloths (that touched Paul) or the bones of Elisha bringing the dead back to life, they will simply dismiss it and run from these verses as fast as they can. 

God even ordered an inanimate object (bronze serpent) to be made and it was used in healing.  “So Moses made a bronze serpent, and set it on a pole; and if a serpent bit any man, he would look at the bronze serpent and live" (Num. 21:8–9).  Never-the-less, there are those Evangelicals who call it idolatry when objects are being used for religious purposes.  This of course begs the question; why do they call the use of objects in a religious setting, idolatry when they are used that way in the Bible?  This is because their man-made tradition opposes the use of objects, but not because there is a Biblical prohibition, because there isn't one.  The verses, I have just cited, are sometimes referred to as Catholic verses, because Evangelical Protestants ignore them and when they are brought up these verses are not explained, but explained away.

God is not limited by the limitations placed on Him by man-made traditions, which ignore parts of the Bible. There will always be those who will say "Relics are not Biblical," because they are not following the Bible.  They often times claim to follow the "Bible Alone" and yet, the tug of their tradition is actually more powerful than their belief in what the Bible says.
