Neil Beagley: False Doctrine Murders Another Child!

Posted by Job on June 18, 2008

Suffice to say that the person who wrote almost 1/4 of the New Testament, Luke, WAS A MEDICAL DOCTOR!
ABC News: Teenager from Faith-Healing Family Dies

A 16-year-old boy whose family relies on faith rather than medical
treatment has died after suffering from stomach pain and shortness of
breath, police said.

Gladstone, Ore., police said the boy’s relatives, members of the Followers of
Christ Church, told police that he had refused medical treatment after
becoming ill a week ago. Under state law, anyone over 14 has the right
to refuse treatment.

The 16-year-old, Neil Beagley, suffered from an inflammation in
his urethra, a tube leading from his bladder, which made him unable to
urinate, Deputy State Medical Examiner Dr. Clifford Nelson told ABC
News affiliate KATU-TV in Portland. Beagley filled up with urine, and that eventually ruined his
bladder, kidneys and heart, said Nelson. He called it “an absolutely
horrible way to die.”

The teen’s condition could have been treated with the use of a catheter, however, Nelson said.

Sgt. Lynne Benton said the case was referred to the district attorney’s office but did not expect charges to be filed. “They said he declined medical attention,” she said. “That’s the story that the family told us during the investigation. I don’t think we’re going to be able to disprove that statement.” The Clackamas County district attorney’s office declined to comment.

Benton said officers and a medical examiner were called to the Beagley home about an hour after his death late Tuesday afternoon, after church members called the medical examiner. Family members told police that the boy had become ill about a week earlier, Benton said.

A phone message left at the Beagley residence was not returned.

The boy is the uncle of Ava Worthington, a 15-month-old girl who died after her parents did not seek medical treatment for her. Her parents, Carl and Raylene Worthington, also members of the Followers of Christ Church, were indicted in March on criminal mistreatment and manslaughter charges and are awaiting trial.

  1. And where in the Bible was anyone told to refuse a doctor’s treatment?

    If being a physician was such a bad thing would Luke have continued being known as one?

    These cults are sick. Child after child dies and they still do this mess.

    Luke 4:12 (New American Standard Bible)

    12 And Jesus answered and said to him, “It is said, ‘YOU SHALL NOT PUT THE LORD YOUR GOD TO THE TEST.'”

    It’s not God telling these people to watch their children die.

    As for Luke being a physician(medical) WAS is the operative word…He was known as “the physician” in the same way Rahab WAS “the harlot” and Simon WAS “the sorceror”….once they had accepted Christ none of them were those things(Yes I know Rahab was OT but it is said in the NT that they looked forward in anticipatiuon of Christ).

    In the case of Luke since Christ had given him and the other apostles power over all manners of sicknesses it would really seem bizarre to see him applying medical recourse when he had the authority to intercede miraculously.

    No one is “refusing” a doctor’s attention, we simply do not ask for the help because it is not needed. The command in James 5 is to call for the elders of the church…ther is never in the scripture any where an affirmative to call for the physicians. King Asa met an untimely demise for doing so and at one point God is ridiculing the Jewish people for their trust in the “balm of Gilead”.

    The same faith that heals our souls is the same faith that forgives our sins and that faith is exercised toward only God, Christ being the only mediator.

    I do feel really saddened for the Beagley/Worthington family, at a time when they need friends and comforting for their losses they have found little from their fellow man. Well at least once again God will not let them down in their time of crises, man, obviously will.
