When Jesus (God), the originator of the cosmos and creator of all life, specifically human beings, was confronted with an epileptic individual in Mark 9, did he cure his neurological illness by touching his head and somehow halting the incessant random impulses in the brain with his magical powers? No. He exorcized the demon that was controlling this individual’s body. Epilepsy is the misfiring of neurons that unconsciously promotes sudden and awkward movements entirely out of the control of the afflicted individual. Demonic exorcism is not a valid form of treatment. If this is the God who created us in whole, why was he ill prepared to administer the proper care? Doctors today can explain in great detail what exactly happens during a seizure. Why is it that human beings (created by God) are better equipped to care for this malady? If Jesus was the creator of all humanity, why did he provide false information to be inscribed in his inspired word?
One thought on “Jesus and Epilepsy”
According Scriptures and the Only One True God is Jesus the only begotten beloved son of God (and not God).
