Even Jesus said go to the physicians.
That's why we have physicians, they have been given the knowledge and wisdom to heal. But then again, some of them don't.
Jesus is the Great Physician, but He also told us to have wisdom. And doctors have knowledge. But at least Jesus won't cancel your insurance policy.
But medicine can only do so much. A torn ligament can be repaired. I have Multiple Sclrosis, it is not fixable, but it is healable. I can go through
this with God and have faith in Him that it might one day be cured, but my hope rests in Him healing me, and if He chooses to heal me through the
medical establishment, then I would not have a problem going that route.
Heal us and we will be healed. In other words, send the cure, we already have the sickness.
Do you know how many people told me all the ways Multiple Sclerosis could be healed? I have been told to drink fruit juices, drink milk, don't eat
certain foods, use other things, have chiropracty, everything, except have faith in God. Those ways are just as destructive and damaging because it
gives a false hope.
But I would never say to anyone they will always be healed in this life. Sometimes you have to accept some illnesses won't be cured or healed here.
But as God gives the knowledge, some people are cured of many things. But prayer is a good place to start, and faith is a good thing to have. It is
only wise to seek help where help is.
I have seen miraculous healings in my life. I believe there are times for miraculous, but to me, it is a miracle also of why we have all the medical
knowledge. I'm still waiting, with hope, for the cure for MS, and not just for me but the 2 million people worldwide and their families. I would
never take hope from them either. And I would not give them false hope.
But the man's problem in the OP, is that he didn't act on faith, which is what we are supposed to do. He just sat back and waited. It does not mean
one does not have faith to go to a doctor, it means they act on faith.
