You mean like putting your faith in a preacher who says mental illness is demons, mustard seeds are the smallest seeds, don't wash your hands, and doesn't know when figs are in season?

I agree, that is pretty dumb.

Whether faith is good or bad depends on what or who you have faith in. If you are sick and put your faith in a doctor who understands your illness and knows how to cure it, it is good. If you put your faith in a quack who is incompetent it is bad.

Trust, based on past evidence and experience, is not "faith".
If you really had *faith* you would just pray, and not go to doctors.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.
