    I took the liberty to not answer some of the questions that are not applicable

    I'm not sure if you heard the radio program... It isn't "why the god in question needed help from doctors" but rather why the doctors needed God. Doctors couldn't fix the problem

    And I was using the point that average "people" doesn't represent "doctors". If you want to think that the doctors are just flipping the word without understanding... I can't do anything about that.

    Again... not the subject matter. "Does happen" is one thing but "remission" has nothing to do with both cases.

    Here is a good example.

    9 The next day as the three travelers were approaching the town, Peter went out on the balcony to pray. It was about noon.
    10 Peter got hungry and started thinking about lunch. While lunch was being prepared, he fell into a trance.
    11 He saw the skies open up. Something that looked like a huge blanket lowered by ropes at its four corners settled on the ground.
    12Every kind of animal and reptile and bird you could think of was on it.
    13Then a voice came: "Go to it, Peter - kill and eat."
    14 Peter said, "Oh, no, Lord. I've never so much as tasted food that was not kosher."
    15The voice came a second time: "If God says it's okay, it's okay."
    16 This happened three times, and then the blanket was pulled back up into the skies.
    17 As Peter, puzzled, sat there trying to figure out what it all meant, the men sent by Cornelius showed up at Simon's front door.
    18They called in, asking if there was a Simon, also called Peter, staying there.
    19 Peter, lost in thought, didn't hear them, so the Spirit whispered to him, "Three men are knocking at the door looking for you.
    20 Get down there and go with them. Don't ask any questions. I sent them to get you."
    21 Peter went down and said to the men, "I think I'm the man you're looking for. What's up?"

    Could we say that you would know by the results?
