The Bible tells us to seek help when we are sick. People who teach healing is not for today must have to go to great lengths to explain away the following Scripture:
Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
(James 5:14-16)
Instead of making a tradition against healing, we should have traditions in our churches for healing. The early tradition was to have the elders of the church anoint with oil and pray for the sick. When the sick were prayed for, they were healed. If they had sinned, they were forgiven at the same time.

If God wanted some people to be sick, why would the Apostle James write this statement? He said if there be "any sick" among you, God will heal him if he is anointed with oil and prayed for in faith.

It seems as if the Apostle James expected all the sick people in the church to be healed. He did not question "if it be God's will." He did not say to let people stay sick a little longer to learn a lesson. He said the prayer of faith would save the sick. It is always God's will to heal those who come before the church and petition healing.
