Do you take medicine seriously?

Many Christians do not. In fact, when it comes to modern american medicine, most Christians fall into two distinct categories: (1) Those who avoid it because they claim only to trust in God and (2) those who abuse it because they have come to trust in it as a god.

If more Christians did take medicine seriously, they would avoid both extremes by realizing the inter-connectedness of the spiritual, emotional, and physical aspects of our health, researching the  history of medicine and pharmacology, and resolving to trust only in the Lord as they make moderate use of modern medical means.

God calls you to take medicine serious:

For in the thirty-ninth year of his reign, “Asa became diseased in his feet, and his malady was severe; yet in his disease he did not seek the LORD, but the physicians.  So Asa rested with his fathers; he died in the forty-first year of his reign.” (2 Chron. 16:11-13)
