This paper takes a look at why religion should be concerned with healing. The author examines this topic by underlying the roles that religion plays in society, emphasizing the important role in providing safety and universal truth to people.
“All religions serve a number of important psychological and social functions: they reduce anxiety by explaining the unknown and provide comfort in the belief that supernatural help is available in times of crisis. Religion, therefore, serves to relate suffering to universal truths and provide a safety valve for the manifestation of fears and paradoxical events.”
