: : : I want to stop taking my medicine and trust in the lord to heal me. Has anybody out there been healed by Jesus. If you have I would really like to hear from you. I really want to live free from medication.\
: : You medication has been prescribed to you for a reason and if you do not trust it, then you have to have a long and honest chat with your doctor. Getting off the medication will damage your health and may lead to all sorts of nasty consequences.
: : I hope you won't listen to all those well-meaning religious people because they are talking complete nonsense. One thing is having faith, and getting the proper treatment is a completely different story.
: : Please think about it and talk to your doctor or a local priest.
: Please allow for different opinions without slandering them.
: Thank you.

Dear Moderator, I'll try my best not to slander these well meaning people in the future. It just bugs me that they would say something like stop your medication and live (or die) with hope.
I find their so called advices harmful and potentially damaging to someone in need of help. Sure you wouldn't want someone to stop their life-saving medication just because someone had told them to rely on 'Jesus' for healing, would you?
