Dear Mike;

Thank you so much for your post. I wish I could write in such an eloquent manner.

Jesus Christ is the true Healer. I have witnessed this FACT time and time again in working with terminal patients.

Thank you for validating the fact that secular medicine plays an important role in the healing process.

I believe that it is imparative for folks within the Christian community to understand that while MANY doctor's do not advertise their personal walks of faith, they do subscribe to the plan of salvation in the New Testament. It would be unethical for them to treat only folks who hold to Christian faith. In the year 2005, sound medical practice does not discount spiritual beliefs, be they Christian, Jewish, Muslim or whatever faith an individual practices. Go to any hospital today, and you can request to meet with a licensed minister from any recognized faith. You can even request to meet with a Rabi, Monk, or Cleric. I have been witness to Doctor's, Nurses, and Clergy holding prayer intervention before a patient goes in for surgery, or before they draw their last breath.

UBF dictates twisted Biblical words that have (and will continue to) thrown people beyond the limits of mental and physical health. There is no healthy balance between body and Spirit for members in UBF. The sad fact is, most members do not realize this until it is to late.

People who are suffering with mental illness do not have a moment to waste. Help is available at all medical facilities and I promise that no one will judge or criticize your walk of faith.
