Abstract:

The theoretical proposition of John Wimber, the founder of the Vineyard Fellowship, in relation to the disease is a product of several factors. On the one hand, the changes that took place in evangelical theology in the second half of the 20th century under the influence of pentecostalism, and on the other, the socio-cultural transformations of American society, which did not remain indifferent to the functioning of religious communities. The denomination, led by Wimber, was created under the influence of the counterculture. Wimber himself combined his evangelical experiences with the theology of dynamically developing pentecostalism. An important part of it is demonology and the theology of healing. Wimber synthesized these two theological subdisciplines, showing the strong connections between demonological aspects and the etiol¬ogy of the disease.
