About Me

Mark 8:
The Healing of a Blind Man at Bethsaida

22They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”  24He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”  25Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. 26Jesus sent him home, saying, “Don’t go into the village.”

I chose this Bible verse for the name of my blog because I believe it illustrates two important aspects of improving one’s vision.  First, Jesus put his hands over the man’s eyes twice; this shows the importance of persistence.  Second, the end result was that the man’s vision became clear and remained that way.

Anyway, I’ve finished college and live in Arizona.  I created this blog so that I could help others and be helped by others in my journey to clear vision.  I hope my blog is at least as helpful to the readers as other vision improvement blogs have been to me.

    See the bottom of the new homepage at http://www.iblindness.org. I’d like to add your blog there. Is that okay?

    So, did this just seem cool for your name, or are you really “religious” also?

    FIAT LUX!

      I am a Christian, and I thought this would be a good story to post on my blog. While the means of vision improvement (a miracle) were obviously different than the Bates method, the story shows that people have always desired clear vision.

    I’m a Christian as well, and think it’s also important that besides putting his hands over the eyes, Christ actually used saliva to probably lubricate the man’s eyes as he massaged and cleaned them. It’s not magic. It’s not even really miraculous. He talked with him and to him, and used trial and error to figure out what was needed. He also pointed him in the right direction. It all makes sense.

      While I do agree that there were some physical/earthly components of the blind man’s healing, I still believe that God’s power was the main factor in this case. It’s also wonderful how Jesus showed God’s love to the man through his conversation and actions with him.

    Oh! Jesus also put the man in forward motion! Really, this example has just about everything we need to know about natural vision improvement.
