We thank God for healing, thanks so much @harrys-queen hun
My dear, I have read what you wrote and contemplated it for a bit. Sometimes, interpreting the Bible can be tricky. Obviously, in the time it was written, they hadn’t even begun to comprehend such things as assisted reproduction. But there were Physicians who did take care of the afflictions they had at the time. In Isaiah 38:21 it reads: Now Isaiah had said, “Let them take a cake of figs and apply it to the boil, that he may recover.” An instruction from God. Also, Mark 5:25-29 makes reference to a doctors, i.e. A woman who had had a hemorrhage for twelve years, and had endured much at the hands of many physicians. Even in St. Paul’s letter to the Colossians (Colossians 4:14), he referenced Luke, the beloved physician, who sent his greetings.
God is not against science or medicine. He created it. He blessed man with the intelligence and ability to develop it. Like @oluwakemine said, there is nowhere Panadol or painkillers are mentioned in the Bible, but that doesn’t mean taking them is a sin. So, in my opinion, there is nothing sinful or unfaithful about seeking medical intervention.
As for sperm / egg donors, my personal preference is for anonymous donors. If I were to use a donor, that would be my preference. But people are different. My first cousin has just opted to go that route, and wants her younger sister to be her donor. Someone who used to be a member of our family, @ipheoma, was a surrogate for her aunt. So it’s all about preference really. For me, I just think it’s best to avoid any complicated relationships later on.
But I’d love to hear what everyone else thinks. @pearl @bibi @ldike @adaoraa @smiley @bosa @nekky @bally @noredia @dford @thisyrismyyr @bsquare @jumjumjum @aadetoyin @temotighoken @tumininu @muanya @mamaz @missirregularversion
