Nearly 2000 years ago the baby Jesus was born in a manger in Bethlehem. This blessed event would have been looked upon quite differently if seen from a medical perspective. Let us examine the so-called "modern" thinking about this event.
If that's not bad enough, common medical practice was ignored from this point on. Certainly an important woman like Mary should have been given some pain relievers or a spinal block to help ease her discomfort. Of course an episiotomy would have been called for to help out. I'll bet that a set of clamps weren't even available in case of need. Not to mention the lack of fetal monitoring equipment in case an emergency cesarean was required. I mean this whole procedure sounds like a nightmare.
About Faith and Health:
I am Dr. Bob Braile and I am a Christian, Husband, Father, and Chiropractor (in that order), who has been greatly blessed by our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. I, and many of my colleagues who also feel their lives have been blessed by Christ, have decided to not hide our beliefs behind some man-made unwritten rule that says that you can not express your beliefs in a professional healthcare setting.
I also believe that real science should not be in conflict with our faith. The fact that a process is scientific does not mean that it is not from God, as it is He who set the universe up to work the way it does. However, in manís own arrogance, we sometimes use pseudo-science to think that we know better than the creator how to care for our bodies.
