Ebola Deaths Rise As Patients Turn to Miracles Over Medicine

The spiritualizing of disease has led people to witch doctors and other healers. The modern church in Africa is sometimes seen as an extension of that tradition. As the promise of miraculous healing mixes with skepticism about the dangers and necessity for caution around deadly diseases, some Christians turn to faith-based treatment rather than medical care.

An evangelical pastor also passed away last month after praying with someone with Ebola who came to him for assistance. A Catholic priest infected by the disease has recovered and was able to recently return to his parish in the remote community of Itipo.

“Some people don't believe in the Ebola virus or in the medication provided, others are afraid of it,” said Jose Barahona, Oxfam’s DRC country director, according to Ekklesia.

“Cases of people leaving hospitals and refusing care have been reported, which could have dramatic ...

The Christianity Today article that SA has is quite good as is the sermon of John MacArthur that follows, which is part of the Charismatic Chaos series.

John MacArthur wrote:
Freeman and the Faith Assembly congregation utterly disdained all medical treatment. He believed that modern medicine was an extension of ancient witchcraft and black magic. To submit to a doctor's remedies, Freeman believed, was to expose oneself to demonic influence. Expectant mothers in Freeman's congregation were told that they must give birth at home with the help only of a church sponsored midwife rather than go to a hospital delivery room or to be treated by a doctor. By the way, obedience to that teaching, cost a number of mothers and infants their lives. In fact, over the years, at least 90 church members died as a result of ailments that would have been easily treatable. No one really knows what the actual death toll would be if nationwide figures could be compiled on all the other people who followed Hobart Freeman's teaching.

John MacArthur wrote:
After a 15 year old girl whose parents belong to Faith Assembly, died of a medically treatable malady, the parents were convicted of negligent homicide and sentenced to ten years in prison. Freeman himself was charged with aiding and inducing reckless homicide in the case. Shortly afterward, on December 8, 1984, Freeman himself died, interestingly enough of pneumonia and heart failure complicated by a severely ulcerated leg.

Hobart Freeman's theology did not allow him to acknowledge that Polio had left one of his legs disfigured and lame. Quote, he said, "I have my healing." And that is all he would say when anyone pointed out the rather conspicuous inconsistency between his physical disabilities and his theology. Ultimately, his refusal to acknowledge his infirmities cost him his life. He had dutifully, according to his own theology, refused all medical treatment for the maladies that were killing him, and medical science could easily have prolonged his life, but in the end he was a victim of his own teaching.
