Couple seeks prayer instead of doctors for child. Child still dies.

...and it's not the first child of theirs that this has happened with.

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/04/23/2nd-child-pa-couple-who-seek-prayer-not-doctors-dies-violates-probation-no/

A couple serving probation for the 2009 death of their toddler after they turned to prayer instead of a doctor could face new charges now that another son has died.
Herbert and Catherine Schaible belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes in faith healing. They lost their 8-month-old son, Brandon, last week after he suffered from diarrhea and breathing problems for at least a week, and stopped eating. Four years ago, another son died from bacterial pneumonia.

Sounds like they'll be praying from a prison cell in the near future.

Ill go ahead and tell this story, because it is good for these kinds of topics.

A man's house is burning down. He is standing on top praying for salvation. A fireman shows up on a ladder and is like "hey, Im here to save you, lets go" and the man is like "no Im trusting God to save me". He keeps praying and a dude in a helicopter shows up and is like "hey srsly we should go" and he is like "PRAYING"

He dies and gets to heaven and is like "Whats the deal, God? I prayed for you to save me. Why am I dead?". God was like "What? Didnt you get the fireman and helicopter I sent you?"

Trying to force God to answer your prayers miraculously is nothing short of telling God what to do, and putting him to the test.

I've heard that one, but it was a dude on a sinking ship and three boats.

TC's story is a sad one.

God probably sent all those smart people to medical and engineering schools so they can find cures and save other people.

I assume they will be charged with child neglect.

That's generally what sane Christians believe. I mean if doctors curing patients isn't godly work I don't know what is.
