 Re:

Why do people think Satan has demonic influence over the world but not the "health industry"? It blows me away.

Do you think that doctors are led by godly men? Do you think the government and FDA are full of godly leaders?

It's like the preacher who wont preach the truth because he has a full pension in his pocket - they willingly turn the blind eye to many things - because they love the money! - and the praise of men!

There is always a cost to pay when you go against the grain, and especially when you are honest and truthful - physically and spiritually speaking!!

I strongly disagree. You can search through PubMed and view the findings of many different groups regarding the "cures" from homeopathic remedies to "cure cancer."


It doesn’t matter how peer-reviewed some things are, the established medical field has tentacles in every area of medicine and they will never endorse non-medical treatment through whole / organic foods or homeopathic medicines because it takes money out of each of their pockets and they cannot allow that. They won’t even publically endorse people to stop eating sugar and white flour or somebody from the food pyramid will sue them!! It’s crazy!

It took a LONG time to get here but I thank the Lord that I’ve stopped drinking any form of carbonated beverages and coffee, I drink organic tea now and I’ve cut way back on sugar; if I want something sweet I use stevia. God is good to provide all these alternative medicines... thank you Jesus!

I’m all for prayer and natural remedies and if a person doesn’t get healed then they better get to a doctor! But I will definitely seek healing through prayer and natural remedies first.

God bless,
Lisa

God have mercy on Chuck Smith, I can't believe they are actually doing thoracic surgery on an 80 year old man, people pray for him! I hope his recovery time is indeed three weeks.

I agree that this thread was started about Chuck Smith. However, I felt inclined to respond to a open-ended advertisement/statement about a "Dr. Coldwell" who makes his living from offering claims about alternative "cures."

Some individuals have quite a bit of faith in the established "non-establishment" and "alternatives to proven medicine" industry. They often point to the scanty "findings" as presented by those individuals while rejecting the observations from the vast majority of doctors, scientists, and medical researchers -- most of whom make less per year that "alternative practitioners."

Now, people have their reasons for believing as they do. Some have a particular background (educational, academic or experiential) that leads them one way or the other. I certainly don't have anything against anyone making their own mind up about such matters -- especially if they do so through credible research (and to applying a "I Thessalonians 5:21" principle to "test everything").

Still, my point in replying is to simply caution those who might make declarations about such things. As believers, we need to be slow to declare absolutes -- especially when we might be wrong. I just feel a need to urge caution. We must all give an account for our words. Even if it is well-meaning, if we make a declaration that ends up being false, we may have unintentionally declared a lie.

However, you are correct that this thread was about Chuck Smith, the founder of Calvary Chapel, and his medical diagnosis of lung cancer. This is a difficult trial, but I trust that Chuck's eyes will be steadfast upon Jesus. I pray for the Lord's testimony to come through all of this...and that the Lord gives Chuck Smith the grace to stand through it all -- even if he can't physically stand on his own.

The Lord bless you all.
