Medical Science

First of all, if you get sick, its your own damn fault.

If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee. —Exodus 15:26

When you are sick, rely on faith-based medicine. Prayer and faith alone will cure you.

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up. —James 5:14-15

For as it says in the Psalms,

The Lord … healeth all thy diseases. — Psalm 103:2-3

And as Jesus said to the woman who touched his garment,

Thy faith hath made thee whole. — Matthew 9:22Mark 5:34Luke 8:48

Or just touch your religious leader’s handkerchief or something.

So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. — Acts 19:12

But whatever you do, don’t go to a doctor. God is insulted if you trust science more than faith.

And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians. — 2 Chronicles 16:12

I remember being so in love with the story of the woman who was sick until she touched Jesus’s cloak from behind. I used to think it was so beautiful and awe-inspiring what believing can do. Key word: Used.
