    Couple turns to prayer instead of medicine - 2nd kid dies.

    Give 'em the chair!


    PHILADELPHIA A couple serving probation for the 2009 death of their toddler after they turned to prayer instead of a doctor could face new charges now that another son has died.

    Herbert and Catherine Schaible belong to a fundamentalist Christian church that believes in faith healing. They lost their 8-month-old son, Brandon, last week after he suffered from diarrhea and breathing problems for at least a week, and stopped eating.

    But, it was "their time". They didnt die because they were ill and needed medical treatment. It was "God's will".

    They should have prayed for God to show them the way to the right doctor. God rarely works through direct intervention. He works through His creations and His instruments. To expect a direct, supernatural intervention because you pray is a monumental sin of pride.

    Why is it that prayers only work when what is being prayed for actually happens? Say a kidnapped kid is found, or a disease has been cured....
