Do we thank God?

The news this weekend is rather exciting. A child in Mississippi is said to be cured of HIV.

Scientists believe a little girl born with HIV has been cured of the infection.

She’s the first child and only the second person in the world known to have been cured since the virus touched off a global pandemic nearly 32 years ago.

Doctors aren’t releasing the child’s name, but we know she was born in Mississippi and is now 2 ½ years old – and healthy. Scientists presented details of the case on Sunday at a scientific conference in Atlanta.

So, if we thank God for this, and I believe we should, then do we also allow that God has allowed other children to die of the disease, not to mention the millions of adults?

Regardless of our theological questions here, I believe God has endowed humans with wisdom through science and scientific pursuits and as such, we see something science has given us that so-called faith healers could not. Come to think of it, this happens a lot. We should thanks God for this day and worry about the other theological implications of such praise tomorrow.

Also, for goodness sake, don’t cut funding
