Filmmaker Elijah Stephens will be releasing a 95-minute documentary on September 14 called “Send Proof” that he has been producing for six years to investigate modern-day healings. Working alongside the Global Medical Research Institute, the documentary features a range of experts, including Christian apologists like William Lane Craig and J. P. Moreland, charismatic faith healers like Rolland and Heidi Baker, skeptics like Michael Ruse and Michael Shermer, board-certified doctors, scientists, and more.
Stephens said he wanted his film to cover as many viewpoints as possible to be thorough enough so that “both skeptic and believer alike will enjoy it and find it challenging.” He also sees the documentary as a way to prompt “Christians who claim to be supernaturally healed to send in evidence, their medical records, to be researched and possibly be published as case studies in peer-reviewed academic journals.” To set the example of this goal, Stephens has included accounts of medical testing and scientific evidence in the film.
When he examined the healing ministry of Rolland and Heidi Baker, he traveled to Mozambique where the deaf and blind were supposedly healed. He looked at how their ministry was scrutinized by scientists in a study, which was subsequently peer-reviewed, and then published in a respected medical journal. In his documentary, Stephens also covers several other stories of miraculous healings that were also peer-reviewed and published in another medical journal.

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him; God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will? Hebrews 2:3-4
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1
