Deuteronomy 34:7

Moses was one hundred and twenty years old when he died. His eyes were not dim nor his natural vigor diminished.

When Schrute won salesman of the year. That was my favorite episode.

From his speech:

“Blood alone moves the wheels of history!”

I don't need to live in fear just because you do.

I do not live in fear. But you apparently live in fantasy land.

Nope, I’ve looked at the stats and that just ain’t so. This is a big part of the problem with Social Security. When it was first set up, with 65 as the retirement age, most people didn’t live a whole lot longer than that, and plenty died younger AFTER reaching an age where they had paid substantial amounts into the system. Just comparing people who reach adulthood, life expectancies have increased dramatically.

If it seems like a lot of well-known people from centuries past lived to what we now consider a ripe old age, keep in mind that those were not average people. Their success was probably in large part due to the fact that they were of above average robustness to begin with, and also lived long enough and in good enough health to continue making significant contributions to society for many years after acquiring the experience and wisdom of what was then an average lifespan.

My sister just turned 49. So, if you want to help, pray for her...

Father... I will to give you all praise honor and glory and thanksgiving for that which you wrought in Jesus Christ with you raised us up and seated us at your own right hand in heavenly places. I will to invoke the victory of the resurrected Jesus Christ over all sin of the old man, Satan, demons, curses powers and principalities not only in this world but also in that which is to come. I also will to receive only from you through Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit and in that I stand in agreement with you and pray that Rick.Donaldson's sister's will be honored in this matter.

Amen!

Are you seriously asking for prayers for your sister?

What you fail to understand is that a son of God that is Baptized in the Holy Ghost can heal and cure the sick...

And here you reveal your spiritual infancy. It isn't the son of God that heals--it is God Himself. Just like it wasn't Moses who parted the Red Sea.

Grow up. God can use medicine, herbs, and drugs to cure just as well as He uses anything, or anyone, else. Do you also decry surgery? If not, how do you reconcile the use of anesthetics on the patient? If you do, then point out in scripture (specifically and obviously) where that profession is explicitly damned. You're merely trying to shove God into a box in which He doesn't fit.

I’m sorry, I don’t see a scam. Have the news agencies picked up the story, highlighting the young man who died? Yes. That said, the main ideas the news stories universally get across are not to panic, and to use common sense hygiene, such as handwashing after a visit to the restroom, and not using a fellow student’s towel after gym class.

Antibiotics have saved millions of lives. If you disagree, remember how many people died just in the Civil War from blood poisoning, or septicemia. However, some bacteria are developing resistance to the older antibiotics.

The articles in the media are warning people against overuse of antibiotics. I would think this is a good thing. Nowhere have I seen a call for socialized medicine from these recent events. I did see a radio talk show host blaming illegal immigrants, but the high school in Bedford county has very, very few students who might be illegal.

My Dad came home from his CABG surgery with a PICC line and Vancomycin IV’s 3 times daily for 2 months knocking off MRSA.

I was asking that the person doing the ranting to stop ranting and do something good instead of screaming for no apparent reason. Yes. I was asking for prayers for my sister too. This hit us all pretty hard after losing mom like we did many years ago. I dont understand the “MRSA Scam” stuff since I haven’t kept up with it.

I gathered from the poster’s initial attacks on those who “go to the doctor” and the “witchcraft” statements that there is perhaps something else wrong here in this thread. But, a few days ago we did discover my sister had cancer.

I just find it very incongruous of folks to, on the one hand attack medicine — which does do wonders daily, and claim prayer is the ONLY thing that will help you.

Perhaps, this individual might figure that the help that we get from BOTH places might be beneficial. I certainly believe it will for my sister.

That’s all.

Thank you.

I'm glad they know it exists and what the treatment is, or else it's likely he would die from it.

That's the point narby. According to the fear mongers of late there is NO TREATMENT for this latest boogeyman they are trying to created.

Hmmm, let me guess: you’re fond of handling poisonous snakes, drinking strychnine, and speaking in tongues?

My family, friends and I do not have health insurance not because we can not afford it but because we do not need it.

Great. You are part of the statistical multitude of the "Uninsured" being used to try to get mandatory government administered health care for all. Be proud.

You might condsider picking up a high deductible per incident 'catastrophic care' plan, unless you folks are good at setting your own bones.

Or maybe you can afford orthopedic work out of pocket.

Some things are likely to yield less than optimal results if done by amatuers.

Your money, your lives, your choice.

Does it hurt you to be a bigoted anti-Christian ignoramus?

So, were you vaccinated for polio? Measles, Mumps, smallpox?

If so, how do you explain your current condition of ‘perfect’ health?
