I believe there are reasons why a dying person should live a little longer and for those who's lives are cut short. I knew a young man, for years was struggling with drugs. He gave himself to the Lord while in jail. He was released and found dead in an apartment. Haveing faith is being positive and to look ahead because there's a destony out there to be lived. On the physical side, our bodies have a way to cure itself. Drugs interfear with that process and people die. Doctors do not have a cure for many ills and neither will a multitude pills help a host of illnesses.

Having faith in the intervention of God is a belief that goodness should prevail. There is nothing wrong with that. But even those with little or no belief in God would want medical treatments to continue on a dying loved one, especially when that's a child.

Relying on Divine Intervention and refusing the proven benefits of medical for a dying loved one is irresponsible. God would want us to use the tools It's provided to us.

Once the organs are gone or the brain is dead it is over. If not their is a chance. their is divene healing, psychic healing, spiritual healing, mind healing. body healing. What about energy it heals. We could go on on energy their crystal energy, mineral energy, metal energy then you have mind energy body energy you have spiritual energy and psychic energy good energy bad energy evil energy and healing energy. The study did not talk about that. It work for some people and not for others. There all no rules I say it up to you and God.
