“Dont place your faith in modern medicine. God is much more powerful.”
You should pray to God for a cure to your brand of insanity. God does not practice medicine, and your insinuation that He doesn’t want man to practice medicine, and instead to substitute prayer for treatment is particularly cruel and darkly inspired.
I think what he meant to get across was not to place your faith totally in medicine and doctors (in man and man’s intelligence alone). God’s healing can work through a good doctor’s diagnosis and treatment ability, the medicines and herbs that are given with care. Just don’t believe that that’s ALL you need for healing, or that God isn’t the one behind the healing. He can work through the medicine, He can work through prayer, He can work through other people, or if He chooses, He can work directly on a person. We don’t know all the ways and reasons why He heals one person one way, and another person, a different way, and a third person, who is not physically healed. There are reasons.
Besides the Apostle Luke was a physician and there was no rebuke of his profession by Christ.
Sometimes whatever is going on to the sick person isn’t the main thing God is trying to accomplish. i.e. Perhaps the sickness of one patient and their recovery is something that gets a doctor or nurse on the path to receiving Christ. Perhaps someone who is weak in faith, praying for another person, has their faith strengthened by the ordeal. Perhaps through the sickness itself the sick person comes to Christ. There are always reasons, we are not privy to all of them.
