Is sickness a result of being cursed or of being put under witchcraft spells?

It can be either or both. When Adam sinned and was cast out of Eden, the Lord told him: “Cursed is the ground because of you,” Genesis 3:11. God had specially prepared the garden for man and man could have had everlasting life.

I have a friend that believes that God uses the devil to kill Christians when it's their time to come to heaven. I told her no, God doesn't need to use the devil. Please clarify this for me and give me scriptures to prove it to her. Thank you!

Can Satan drive out Satan?
