Christians fighting flu bug with more than just vaccines

See also

According to a January 3 article in the USA Today, the influenza bug has officially been reported throughout the United States. The strain is similar to the 2009-2010 strain which lead to the deaths of over 250,000 people.

The article goes on to say that North Carolina has the most reported deaths: 13.

According to Wikipedia, sneezing and coughing are not the only ways a person can be infected. You can also be infected by having contact with bird droppings or contaminated surfaces.

Doctors believe that your chances of being infected can be minimized by frequent washing of the hands, keeping your hands off of your face, and avoiding those who appear to be ill.

Many men and women do not get vaccinated against the virus for spiritual and other reasons.

One Christian stated the following:

“This is not another debate on miracles versus medicine. Christians take aspirin and headache pills just like anyone else. But, according to the Holy Bible, there was a time when sickness meant the elders of the church visiting, the sick being anointed with oil, and prayer. That is still a recipe for healing.”

Does the use of over the counter medications demonstrate a lack of faith?
