“Dont place your faith in modern medicine.”
Could you please clarify exactly what your point is? It sounds to me that you’re implying that only sinners suffer from disease and that “modern medicine” does not cure illness.
Maybe I read it wrong.
No, Paul himself was afflicted (eyesight if I recall)- he also advised Timothy about his stomachs frequent infirmities.
Christians, regardless of faith, service or station are subject to have a thorn in their side. It serves to build compassion I believe for those who also suffer.
We should minister to those in need. Not rebuke them for lack of faith!
I don’t reject science; “gnosis” in the Greek text. But, if you reject God’s capacity to deliver and heal you miss a lot of opportunity.
