Reiki and Christianity?

I find it odd that most christians demonize Reiki. It is believed that Reiki is the form of healing used by Jesus. In the sermon of the mount Jesus even says "all that I have done, you can do. Go, and be fishers of men."

He trained his 12 disciples to HEAL people and yet, modern healers today are dismissed as anti christian loonies.

Ironic, is it not?
For those of you who doubt, Reiki does work. I have lost count of the people I have helped. And yes, I encourage my patients to seek medical attention. I like having doctors come to me and ask how I have healed their patient.

it is very ironic
but the answer I usually get with things like healing etc is …
if it doesnt come from God it is from the devil
so anyone who is not Christian is not recieving these gifts from anyone but Satan

what Satan wants to heal people for , I have no idea

    I’ve never even heard of it. You provide no source for your "most Christians" factoid. I assume fundamentalists would revile it if it involves non-traditional healing; otherwise,I can’t imagine organised Christianity would even consider it worth commenting on. The Church takes no position or I would have heard of the matter. Ironic,is it not?

    Jesus did not train His desciples to heal, He gave them the power to heal. There is a difference. The spiritual gift of healing, along with other gifts of the Holy Spirit are not given to every one that is saved. Some have this gift, some have other giftings. I don’t have all the answers, I know that it is not God’s will to heal everyone physically, but to heal us all in out spirit to be reconcyled to Jesus and God’s plan for salvation.

    Reiki is not a Christian practice, I don’t know much about reiki, but it is not the same as what Jesus practiced on earth. When He healed a person (except for the soldier that had his ear cut off by Peter) every one He healed he told them that" their faith had made them well, and to go and sin no more". Faith in who Jesus was was the condition of the healing, and to believe he was the annointed one, the Messiah, the Christ, the Son of God (or God in the flesh) was what allowed Him to release His power of healing. The Apostles healed because of their faith in Jesus as God. No personal internal energy was used, it was what God had blessed them with.

    But even the healing was not the miracle, the miracle was when Jesus told the man atr the pool of Bethsaida, "Do you want to be healed"?, or when he told Nicodeamus out of the blue "You must be born again". For you see Jesus new what you hearts desire was, what your real need was, and as you came to Him, he just went to the end of the matter, why you were there in the 1st place.

    To know your need, or you hearts desire, or you mind before you can utter the thought yourself, That is the miracle of God. Reiki cannot do this thing.
