For three decades children of this congregation have been dying because of this. Do you think the person in charge should go to prison for murder? Or for neglect?
(Sorry I can't find a link since I saw it on the news.) It was reported on CNN though if you're wanting to look in to it and can find it online.
I think it is neglect. I feel God gave us doctors and people knowledgeable to help.

My younger boys have friends that are the same age and brothers also;they belong to a similar type church.The mom has type 1 diabetes and her church has encouraged her to lift it up to the Lord.As she deteriorates and is less involved with her middle school boys we are watching them turn on some wrong paths.She is married to their dad but he embraces the concept also.I am an active Methodist and we believe docs can be instruments of God I have tried to explain that concept because I care and worry about them all.She tells me God will provide.Parents do get sick and sometimes are not able to be all, well that is just life sometimes but this is just upsetting.I think these type churches should be held accountable for their preaching if it directly is the cause.Sorry such a rant this is just upsetting as I watch these sweet boys disappear and little thugs emerge unchecked.

I have mixed emotions about this. People should be able to practice the beliefs and religion. If you are an adult, you should be able to decide 100% about your choices. No one should interfere.
Kids, I'm not so sure about. I wouldn't want the government deciding my kids health care. Some people consider not vaxxing your kids neglect. Others look at all forms of natural or homeopathic medicine as dangerous. Other people deem vaccinations the equivalent to poisoning your kids. Who decides what is appropriate or not?
