Sidlow Baxter states that there are four different attitudes concerning healing and miracles in the history of the Church.
In summary they are:
1. Signs and Wonders ceased with the end-of the Apostolic age. Anything which appears to be such is either spurious or not occurring by divine means.
2. Signs and Wonders ceased because they belonged only to the earliest centuries. They ceased because they were no longer needed as “divine credentials” since the Church had been widely established and officially sanctioned.
3. Signs and Wonders faded out gradually as the condition of the organized Church deteriorated.
4. Signs and Wonders have never ceased among true Christian believers, but have occurred from the Apostolic age until now.
