I'd heard of gospel singer Dwayne Woods and his testimony of how God healed him of HIV about a year ago and my initial thought was disbelief. It's not everyday that you hear of someone who tested positive come out and tell you that through prayer and faith the virus had been completely wiped out of their system. After all this is a disease that has no cure and has claimed the lives of millions of people over the past 25 years.

I truly believe that over two decades into this epidemic we are either infected or affected by this disease. It took me a really long time to watch Dwayne give his testimony because honestly I was a little skeptical. But then I thought to myself as a christian we believe that God can perform miracles, then why not in the case of Dwayne Woods and other people living with HIV or any terminal illness.

I'm posting this because I believe that somebody who comes across this post might benefit from Dwayne's testimony. Somebody who may feel like they have nothing to live for, somebody who may feel like they're used and unwanted goods, you're not in the fight alone, God is still in control.

i may believe the man once had a HIV test that gave him a false positive and now he rightly tests negative... but there is no willing suspension of disbelief gonna happen here... but sloppy lab work is not a miracle.

gI saw this testimony as well and was moved. It was a reality check. We are automatically skeptical ("false positive" "sloppy lab work") of anything that goes against our pathetic conditioning (especially Black folk--"The man's" word is our gospel). Mr. Woods is not alone in this. There are thousands of documented cases of persons with HIV and AIDS who are now healthy and show no signs of this in their system. Because we are slaves to the idiot box (tv) we often lose sight of the fact that HIV/AIDS is one of the most profitable industries out there. We dont hear of these 'healed' people because most adverstising is done by pharmaceutical companies who can potentially lose billions if we stop believing in their prescriptive poisons. Any person diagnosed with any condition must first make a critical choice: get busy living...or get busy dying. If you choose to live, then you've got to take a leading role in restoring your health. Do not rely soley on a "physician" who spends most of your consultation reading charts and numbers as if you are not a living breathing being! Dewayne Woods attributes his to a miricle and he is absolutely correct! As we are all entitled to miricles. Others who have been previously infected may contribute it to other factors. Regardless, each individual is having his/her own experience and is entitled to perceive how they please. Let's stop with the ignorance and sweeping judgements! After all, we live in one of the richest, technologically advanced countries in the world. So why are we the fattest, most diseased and constantly slipping in education? HMMMM. Come of folk, out shit stinks! Time to wipe our ass and flush out the toxins! To Dewayne and all the others, keep letting your light shine!

I saw the testimony; however I am still very skeptical. Whatever his sexual orientation, I would perhaps not have UNPROTECTED sex with anyone. His disease might be UNDECTABLE that is why he feels that he is CURED. I am no scientist and I am not bonfied Christian, but I do have HIV. I really don't appreciate DEWAYNE telling everyone that he is CURED, I mean if he really was CURED, there might have been more speculation to it that went beyond TBN. I love his music and he has an awesome voice, but I honestly believe that he is being very careless. Many people believe that homosexuality is some sort of demonic behavior that possesses the body. I grew up in a loving household, was never molested, or LURED into homosexuality; my reason for being gay was because I was attracted to MEN since I could even remember. I was smart for following my heart, but I was not smart in trusting someone that I thought I love, that is why I got infected, not because I was promiscuous. But my point is that he might have really had some issues and he felt that his reasoning for getting HIV was because he was being punish, so he might claim that he is not GAY, he has been delivered, he now likes women, but the real reason is that he was hurt, he needed someone to blame, so he blamed gay, or what not. But I don't know if that is his case, but I bet you that it is part of the reason. But I wish him all the luck, I hope he continues to take care of himself and not lose sight of his "prior" condition.

To all who posted there comments. I have one thing to say.If you don't believe in God or have never read the bible then of course your not going to understand his testimony.That's why the bible also states that we perish because of the lack of knowleedge. It also states that those who are not of the spirit those things that of the spirit are foolish to you. So unless you are a christian his testimony is foolish to you. Not only that faith is the substance of this hope for the evidence of things that we can not see.If your not a christian or no the word for yourself then your not going to understand his testimony. God is a miracle working God. He performed many miracle in the bible and he is still doing it today. We walk by faith and not by sight. We has christian don't exspect non-believers to believe the things that we believe because your not living the life. Not to believe that Dwayne woods was healed is just like not believing that God is a healer. So to you all who don't believe. I pray that you don't find yourself in that situation and you need help. The bible also speaks against judging that same judgement that you past on some else you also will be judge by that same judgement. Not only homosexual people get aids either.People all different kinds of sexual prefernces can get HIV/AIDS.Just because somethings seems different to you,doesn't mean it can't or it didn't happen. The doctor gives the results, but God has the final say.

I am not a person thats here to bash gay people but I just read in some of the comments about this guy being gay saying that a gay spirit is not demonic and justifing why he became gay. a demonic spirt has not a face but homosexuality is not right and it is a sin.I don't know how Mr. Woods Got it that is not my Concern. Obviously he has made a mistake and learned from it and God have for given him and has healed him and he is making known of God's Wonderous Works and I not saying that he is or ever was gay because aids does not just claim homosexuals but it has claimed many people of different Walks of Life.If some of the gay people would read in the bible in Romans 2:21-32 verses about men leaving the natural use of the women burned in their lust one toward another men with men working that which is unseemly and to add my little bit is nasty for a man or a women Then god turned you over to a reprobate mind. I know God is a Healer I believe mr woods testimony about God healing him of Aids.God is the same god he changeth not and in his word he healed all sickness and dieases. I'm not worried about how he got it. if you concentrate on that then you are missing the big picture all together. Miracles, Yes, I still and will always believe in the Miracles and the Wonderous Works of My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I do not see very many posts on this subject because in the eyes of the religious community much of it is taboo. I applaud this young man for speaking out about his condition and boldy attributng his healing to God. I am praying that the churches of our day become more open to people who are experiencing these issues and will lovingly embrace everyone who reaches out, especially those who are bold enough to go public. I know Mr. Woods is not saying that he is willing to be the HIV poster boy but he has a tremendous testimony that can really affect the lives of our young people with a message we all need to hear and share young and old. If I could, I would bring him to my city and have a rally around him to bring glory to God's name! I live in Syracuse, NY and I am a woman pastor of NZCD and I feel the pain of what our young people are going through especially with regard to sexual orientation. Let me say my little peace here. We christians like to focus on outward sin, but what about the sins of ommission and sins of lack of faith, doubt fear and unbelief,I call them the big 4. We don't have to place a specific name tag on sin ie. an act of sin but, we can generalize and say everything that is not of faith is sin. For first we must believe that he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently or earnestly seek him! Bottom line. So lets get away from this sin tagging and name calling and examine ourselves and see whether or not we are in the faith and leave the judgement to God. Love yall!

I enjoyed Dewayne's interview on TBN,on how he was healed,the problem with us is that we put GOD in a box we believe in science more than we believe GOD.We forget that we serve a faithful GOD who among other things heals.Like Dewayne i believe that one day i will posting my own testimony of being healed and to all those who are believing GOD for the same he can do it!

I believe that God is able to heal you from anything and I KNOW that God did it and just like he did it for him, he can do it for anybody but it's according to your faith be it unto you. All you got to do is believe God and walk in your healing, and everyday believe God that I AM HEALED!!!! God honors our words but you got to know how to walk in what I call CRAZY FAITH.
