At the Intersection of Science and Religion

Wow! Heavy thoughts all week. I have really spent the last week digesting some deeper questions I needed to explore. I started off by examining my purpose this year, spoke on the pandemic and its impact on healthcare workers and today I want to dissect the role of religion on health and wellness.

Is there a relationship between science and religion? Or is it mutually exclusive? Does God heal? Or is it science that does the healing?

Now, this is a topic I’ve explored many times in my head. I have had many debates with friends and family members. Some of my colleagues agree, and well others disagree. And that’s alright! The great thing about being alive today is that we can live in a world and disagree peacefully.

I am at a point in my life where I know the answer to these questions. Now, many may argue with me, some may disagree, but I truly believe that healing comes from God.

I know, I know. How can someone who works along with science, study medicine, take care of patients, believe that healing comes from God?

It’s simple! I have seen it. I have lived it. My testimony is enough evidence for me. The testimonies of my family are enough evidence for me.

Like someone telling you that you have 4 months to live, but here you are 1 year later, not only alive but thriving.

Please do not be fooled. I am aware of how important medicine is in treating illnesses. And how many change research has brought to the treatment and management of diseases along the course of history. I support the medical community, I am apart of the medical community, and proudly so!

I will tell you this; I believe in science, medicine, and research. Also in technology and healthy debates. But, I also believe God heals.

I am not forcing you to believe, not one bit. We each choose which tenants to live by; religious or not. The life I have lived is much different than yours.

Please share your opinions on this below. What do you think?


  1. Like you, I believe medicine is a gift from God. If you’re interested, you can find a list of some of great Christian scientists here: You might, also, enjoy reading the books by John Lennox, a respected Oxford mathematician and Christian apologist. Blessings, A.

    I am a living testimony of of God’s healing
    I was diagnosed with a rear liver cancer almost one year ago, had an unsuccessful course of treatment but I am alive until now. My doctor is amazed at my improvement. I attribute this to the prayers of my church family
