Pentecostal Pastors Tell HIV Patients to have faith and not doctors: Right or Wrong?

The question comes to mind if it is right or wrong for Pentecostal pastors to teach HIV patients to put their faith and God and not doctors.  However, with any illness, the Word of God teaches us to have faith in God, because His Word cannot lie.  God gave us His commandments to accept and follow and it is a sin not to believe His Word.  'But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.'  Therefore, we have no choice but to believe God's Word, because it is a sin not to believe what He promised us.

According to, medical staff told the BBC a minority of pastors in England were endangering young church members by putting them under pressure to stop medication.

In Isaiah 53: 5, it says this: ' But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.'  Also in I Peter 2:24, God's Word says: 'Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.'  So, whose report will you believe?  The diagnosis that the doctor has given you or God's Word?  However, when it comes to an individual taking medicine, such as HIV patients it would not be wise to instruct them not to take it until the doctor has told them they cannot find a trace of disease in their bodies.

In the meantime, we will keep these HIV patients in our prayers, but we would hope they use wisdom and continue to have faith while taking their prescribed medication.
