Most people do not have complete faith in God. I guess this would be good because some people may get in harms way just to prove their faith. Unless one is a fanatic suicide bomber, the results may not be what is expected.
The recent news of an actress undergoing a preventive double mastectomy to prevent cancer is an interesting subject for those concerned with the subject of faith. The women with her particular genes has almost 90% of a chance of developing breast cancer according to researchers. With the surgery, she has reduced her risk to 5%.
For those who claim to have complete faith in God, would you have undergone this treatment, or would you have depended on God and waited? If you do go through the procedure, would your faith in God be lessened?
Her reasoning was that she has children, and wants to do everything possible to take care of them. This is an extreme giving gift to her children, and her husband, but where is the faith in God? Where is the faith that God will help her beat the odds?
I believe that the majority of people will not accuse her of a lack of faith. She has the research to back her actions. Who would not afraid to go into combat. Who would not be in fear of an impending hurricane. The dangers of these events are known like the risks of the cancer gene. Maybe it is faith or belief that God will give us the wisdom and guidance to make the right decision, is what is the most important.
