Bad Faith
The Ultimate Test of Faith October 18, 2016
Jehovah's Witnesses avoid blood transfusions because of the Biblical mandate to "abstain from blood." Christian Scientists understand sickness as an illusion that can be corrected through prayer. It's one thing for an adult to choose spiritual approaches to healing, but what if a child’s life is at stake? We talk to two guests: a medical doctor who studies vaccinology, and a former Christian Scientist who says she was persuaded by her church not to take her dying son to the hospital in the late 1970s. From August 2015.
