    Question Cure or Heal...

    Hi,
    Is there any distinction between the two verbs?

    Which verb (or any other one) could be used in ritual and religious context when people claim they've been ......ed because they've prayed to God...etc.? Thanks a zillion...

    To cure a disease.
    To heal a wound.
    You may be talking about spiritual healing, but I can't say for sure.

    Re: Cure or Heal...

    The two words can be used interchangeably in many cases.
    There's the term 'spiritual healer', not 'spiritual curer'.
    'Cure' seems to sound more complete though.

    not a teacher
