God made our bodies so we can cure the disease we have if we listen to what he has told us.
Yes, true we have to listen to HIM, we should ask HIM what to do, not just listening to our body with our own strength.
How do you think we cure disease? It would be very sad if there was no hope.
Yes, HOPE is a powerful medicine. But God doesn't want to give us only the "good" one, HE wants to give us the "best" one. Solving the symptomps is just the "good" one, but solving the illness is the "best" one.
Birth defects are the result of a toxin in the mothers body. Maybe mercury fillings, maybe a vaccine, maybe something in the food, air, or water, maybe a drug, maybe alcohol or maybe a virus. The developing babies do not have as much of a resistance to toxins as the mother. That is why it is so important for the mother to stay as healthy as she can.
So, how to fix the problem which the baby has (the birth defects that causing a disease) not the mother's?
God did not intend for these babies to be borned with defects.
But, quotes from the Bible :
1. John 9:1-3 (As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”3 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.)
2. Job 2:3 (Then the Lord said to Satan, “Have you considered my servant Job? There is no one on earth like him; he is blameless and upright, a man who fears God and shuns evil. And he still maintains his integrity, though you incited me against him to ruin him without any reason.”)
3. Job 2:7 (So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord and afflicted Job with painful sores from the soles of his feet to the crown of his head.)
Should i make the conclusion from the above quotes? God lets sufferings (e.g. diseases) happen to people for so many reasons, so HIS works could be done through us or to test us.
