God can, and does, cure sickness. He also, however, expects us to use our brain and use the resources of this planet to our advantage. Considering some the biggest contributors to scientific discovery and invention were religious, you'd think people would understand this by now.

I am a Christian. But I have worked hospice enough times to know that God does not cure all people. This has been something I have pondered often and I have no real answers. I like a quote from House MD that was said by Dr. Chase, that prayer belongs in the waiting room and not the operating room.

But I think people go a little crazy with their theology. Denying people treatment because you think prayer will heal him? I tend to think God wants you to get whatever treatment is available. People who don’t use birth control because they think it’s interfering with God’s will…I just picture God facepalming somewhere. Whatever He looks like. Morgan Freeman probably.

What if God only judges weather you deserve to go to Heaven or not? What if all he did was create and judge us? Is there any proof or evidence he has any control over what happens on Earth? I just don't understand why there are so many people who think that God will fix all their problems for them.

Mercy...at least not everyone is like that. xx I'm so glad that child got some care.

Why is it so hard for some "religious" people to accept that just maybe, however surprising it is, God is the reason that medicines and doctors exist at all? There's nothing that forbids one to find help. Not at all.

It's kind of sad when people ignore basic help that's right in front of them. I used to work in a church nursery with ages 3-6. A coworker who had been there a few years longer then I told me this little gem:

There was a family that had two kids, a young son and an older daughter, that would attend. They were vegan, saying all life is sacred, and pretty much wouldn't let their kids eat anything besides Cheerios. As you can imagine, they were rather sickly looking and weak. Well, the girl broke her leg one day, which soon became terribly infected. My coworker, who used to babysit them at the time, kept telling the family that she needed to be taken to a hospital to get it looked at immediately. The family refused, saying that only God could help their child, that they would prey this wound that was slowly killing their daughter away.

My coworker called child services and a doctor saved her.

We must respect their beliefs and decisions though. Apparently, their child dying in a world where a good number of common diseases can be easily cured is not enough to shake their view of modern medicine.

However, most procedures are invasive and sometimes mutilating even if it saves a life. I know a number of religions who revere blood that they're not allowed any kind of transfusion OR donation. It's really up to their leaders to decide what's sensible and what isn't. We can't force them to change their ways though.

Although, it's good to educate them about preventive measures in case their faiths do not agree with the standard curative measures.

Ugh. That's really sad :( but there may be hope yet. I saw that some of their followers who weren't convinced by the "laying of hands" secretly go out and bring their kids or themselves to hospitals and clinics. However, if they didn't agree with that in the first place, I wonder why they took up this religion :shrug:

Several children have in fact died because their religious parents inssited on praying then going to the doctor.
