Caduceus

It is not mere coincidence that one of the disciples of Jesus, was a medical doctor. The Gospel of Luke indicates that it was written by a man that had medical experience. Jesus acknowledged the need for a physician when he said in Luke 5:31, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” This statement is recounted in Matthew 9:12 and in Mark 2:17. From the above Scriptures, we see that Jesus believed in doctors and that he affirmed that it is the sick who need a physician. This submenu does not promote the belief that consulting a doctor implies that a Christian does not have enough faith in God. It is our belief that only God can consider the human heart and discern the intent and the measure of faith that a person has, and no human is qualified to make such a judgment. Rather, the submenu seeks to strike a balance between divine healing and acknowledgement of limited human knowledge in healthcare.
