No matter the manner of humankind in disbelief. God is real.
Peace and Love,

THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY AND HEALING
PART 107: HOW THE SICK BENEFIT
the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
As the days of life roll on the
righteous know of an eternal resting place. However as they pass through this
foreign land there is Peace and Joy. Peace and Joy is seen in the hearts and
minds of the righteous that know God. Therefore the sick are rendered comfort
and the weak are given strength.
It is for sure that the believers are
well aware of the great benefits the sick receive from religion. However the
medical community and those that have heard about (but don't know God) God are
still grappling for answers.

Dr. Harold Koenig is the Director of
Duke's Center for the study of Religion/Spirituality and Health. In the October
(1998) International Journal of Psychiatry in Medicine it is reported that
those who attend weekly religious services have healthier immune systems.
This was the 1st study that found an association
between religious activity and immune functioning. The blood levels of
Interleukin 6 (IL6) and other substances that regulate immune and inflammatory
responses were lower in those that practice a religion.
While many studies have been clouded
in mystery as to faith unseen the study of immune functioning influence
political discussions regarding the role of religion in public life. Here we
see questions regarding moral behavior impacted by religion. The question of
fidelity in marriage and martial stability is also affected by one's religious
Hence this survey as a means to test
these questions gains prominence we see the results of faith. "
Andrea Neal argues further:
"With such data available, it's hard to understand why government
officials shy away from public policies that give religion a prominent
Meanwhile questions centered on the
"separation of church and state" are raised. Also, there are concerns
regarding the so-called Christian right. Thus much of the conservative thinking
is advocated by people who also claim to know God. For the record the
FreedomJournal reveals that some know God and some do not. However, who will
benefit the lost and render positive decisions for the public good? Will it be
the Flaming Liberals with no morals who hate God and God's people? Will
right-wing conservatives that take the Bible and distort the true messages of
God stand up for God and for God's people? Well are all Liberals ungodly and
are there any Godly among the conservatives?
It is for sure that if more people
would attend the church of their choice we would have fewer problems. For
example many crimes, divorce, un-wed pregnancy and drug addiction would be
reduced. Also, various health problems would be at a minimum.
