You read about it every once in awhile where a child/adult died due to relying on their faith instead of modern medicine. Wouldn't you think that there comes a time that your child in not getting any better and that a doctor would be the best thing for them?

I think adults have the right to make medical decisions for themselves and their children. I do not think it is morally right to deny your child medical treatment for serious medical conditions. An ear infection will most likely clear up on it's own. Cancer needs to be treated. In the end though it is the parents who would grieve and have the burden of guilt not any of us. The government needs to stay out of peoples faith even if that means the parents do not seek out western medicine for their children. I think the only time a parent should be prosecuted for medical negligence is if they did nothing. Believing that faith will heal your child isn't doing nothing. Those people are doing what they honestly think is the best most responsible thing.

PRAISE THE LORD .... There are noting wrong with going to the doctor but I know a doctor that has never lost a patient and His name is Jesus. Faith healing can work all the time if you believe in the power of healing if you believe then greater is he that is in me then he that is in the world john 4-4 If you read the book of mark it talks about healing. God has used me to heal. My uncle had cancer and I believe and prayed for him and he was healed because I had FAITH that he was going to be healed. But you have to have the power of the holy spirit.

cont............ Some people us the words like but and if and you can't use but and if in the power of prayer to heal someone cause once you say but you just put doubt in you spirit. Because when you say but you going to use another path if prayer don't work. like medicine or going to the doctor.And he or she breath the same as you the doctor that is! And once you said if you failed in the prayer. But if you stand on the word the true living word of God and do as the bible says lay hands on the sick and THEY SHALL RECOVER. Like Jesus did. Hope this helped love ya in Christ
