Faith healers and a dead 15-year-old
LOUDON, Tenn. - Members of a religious group who believed prayer would heal a terminally ill teenager called on God to raise the girl from the dead this week. That didn't happen, and Jessica Lynn Crank, 15, was laid to rest in a local cemetery.

But controversy over the case lives on.

Jessica's mother, Jacqueline Crank, 41, and her "spiritual father," Ariel Ben Sherman, are charged with aggravated child abuse and neglect.

Crank and Sherman, who heads the New Life Ministries religious group of which Jessica was a member, may face murder charges for allegedly failing to seek medical testing and treatment for Jessica after being urged to do so by personnel at a clinic. ...

And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need, not a physician: but they that are sick Luk 5:31. Though Jesus had the power of healing, he acknowledged the usefulness of physicians. Jesus told a woman, "thy faith hath made thee whole." Mat. 9:22. In this, and other passages, we understand that it is by faith that we are healed. Hence the name "faith healing". If you muster the faith to be healed exclusively by Divine intervention, you WILL be healed. If not, you should pray to God that He guide the physician in finding the way to help you.

All though for the most part this faith healing buisness is for the birds. I do believe in Divine healing in fact that is the only kind of healing their is. In James the Bible sais if any be sick among you let him call for the elders of the church. Notice Gods Bible doesnt say form a healing line. They misquote the verse in Isaiah saying by His stripes we are healed they never read in Peter wheere He quotes that verse and sais By whose stripes ye were Healed. Pointing to the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Thanks Matthew Stone from Baton Rouge, LA. I totally agree with your statements on this story. I have almost zero faith in the medical profession. I've seen them mess up too many people. I guess, according to Ryan from In. that I fall into the category of those who are too blind to see that God has given us doctors to be a help for our body. I do believe in seeking medical help from alternative sources, not necessarily doctors. I also believe in prayer to the living God. But you just about have to research the condition for yourself rather than putting your blind faith in a doctor, who is most likely not a Christian, and very often treats you as a commodity rather than a person.

The parents of Jessica Lynn felt in their hearts that they were following the word of God. We should all follow their example and heed His word in our own lives. The government has no business interfering in our personal relationships with the Lord and Savior and it's a travesty that this girl's death, which was our Lord's will, has become the basis for the persecution of honest and true worshipers of our Lord.

This sought of thing is sad, and perhaps arises out of a misunderstanding and misfocus upon Jesus' miracles. Jesus was a healer, though his physical healings were primarily to show us that he has the power to heal us spiritually (Mt 9:1-7). Its far more important we have faith in His spiritual healing, and be like Job and Paul when it comes to the physical afflictions, remembering Romans 8:28. Im sure Paul never shyed away from medical advice, but he would have sought and acted upon it in prayer.

Joe Richard makes a good point; that it is wrong to neglect resources God has given us, medicine in this case.

On the other hand, let's keep in mind that we need to evaluate those resources. Christopher Reeve, for example, would have us to believe that the murder of dozens of embryos for his benefit is "medicine."

So let's use the legitimate resources, but keep an eye out for those who would introduce sin into the resources we are blessed by.

I believe a form of religion not substantiated in the new testament was practiced. Although I believe this practice is not of our Lord, I also believe christians(especially) are in no position to condemn. Only the mother is experiencing the full brunt of the loss of her daughter. The rest is between she and God. Hopefully her daughter got saved during her life and is now in heaven with Jesus

Though I don't know exactly what to think about this particular case, this kind of thing is something that we ought to think and pray about. The reason is that a law that mandates medical care comes almost necessarily from the materialist point of view. It promotes a religion that is not ours.

How is it that they would be so blind that they could not see God has given us doctors to be a help for our bodys. Yes we should have faith that God will heal us but it does not have to be a maraculous healing we as christians should be sober minded and not going to the doctor out of faith is not a bible based step of faith.
