So, my girlfriend is telling me about a friend of hers who works as a nurse in the E.R. This girl had a woman come in a few weeks ago, with grapefruit sized breast cancer lumps all over her breasts. They had been neglected to the point that they split open, started to ooze and had become infested with maggots. The woman came in, not to be treated, but to have them cleaned out because they had gotten to the point where her husband would not have sex with her anymore. That's why she came in. Not because her life was threatened, but because her husband looked at the oozing, maggot infested tumors and wouldn't have sex with her. Apparently, enormous tumors are okay. Even oozing tumors are okay. But he draws the line at maggot infested oozing tumors. When she was questioned about why she had not sought treatment, she said that if she was meant to be healed, then God would heal her and that it was not her place to interfere if He chose to let her die. She was fully insured, by the way. The nurse said that this was not the first time she had seen someone refuse treatment on the grounds that they didn't want to interfere with God's Plan. Is this something that's more common than I've been led to believe? Isn't one of the tenents of the Bible that God helps those who help themselves? How is that any different from not eating and counting on Jesus to provide you some form of magical nourishment? Anyway, not really counting on great discussion coming from this, just thought some of you would find the story as unbelievable as I did, and I'm sure this wouldn't have lasted two minutes in the Lounge.
