(Brisbane, Australia)—Christian doctors and medical professionals will be traveling from many different countries from around the world to prescribe "spiritual healing" as an answer to sickness in the 21st Century, during a unique conference in Brisbane, Australia from June 11-12, 2011
The doctors will examine actual case studies of miracles presented by various respected doctors as they search for evidence of Divine Healing at the 8th Annual International "Spirituality and Medicine" Conference to be held for two days at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Brisbane, Australia, is the capital and most populous city in the Australian state of Queensland and the third most populous city in Australia.
Earlier this year, Brisbane and other parts of Queensland was devastated by floods and besieged residents were forced to watch the monster river consume their homes and livelihoods and then had to confront the devastating destruction and putrid, tar-like sludge left by the receding waters.
The floods forced the evacuation of thousands of people from towns and cities in the state. At least seventy towns and over 200,000 people were affected. Three-quarters of the state of Queensland was declared a disaster zone.
But now, as the city and the area recovers from such devastation, it plans to welcome hundreds of Christian medics who will be examining data presented by their peers about "miracles" that they believe prove that God has intervened in impossible situations.
The event is being sponsored by the World Christian Doctors Network (WCDN), an interdenominational organization composed of Christian medical professionals from around the world who believe in divine healing.
"WCDN wants to motivate Christian medical professionals to reflect the love of Jesus Christ and to be a witness for Him in their professional life," explained a spokesperson for the organization.
He went on to say, "Two thirds of medical schools in the US, including Harvard and Johns Hopkins, offer courses on spirituality and faith in their curriculums, largely because patients are demanding more spiritual care. According to a Newsweek poll, 84% of Americans said that praying for others can have a positive effect on their recovery."
Along this line of thought, a group of Christian medical doctors started WCDN to tackle issues on spirituality in the context of the Christian medical practitioner, with its main intention of influencing and equipping Christian doctors "by sharing the goodness of Christ in the form of proclaiming the Gospel principally through the healing ministry."
As in all of their international conferences, the medical professions will be searching for cases of divine healing with verified medical evidence. Several of them will be making presentations and afterwards, their peers are then able to question them about whether this is a verifiable miracle or not.
"During the walk of Jesus here on earth, a major strategy He used to proclaim His Lordship was to heal the sick," said the WCDN spokesperson. "It is our role as His expert witnesses to testify to the works of healing by the Power of God with verified medical data, therefore giving the glory to our Father God who is the Almighty and to Him who is the Healer, the Lord Jesus."
