500 Doctors from 26 Countries Gather to Present Evidence of Divine Healing
CEBU CITY, The Philippines, June 8, 2006 (LifeSiteNews.com) - More than 500 physicians from 26 countries gathered June 1-2 for a conference at the Grand Convention Center, Cebu City, the Philippines, in which medical doctors from around the world presented scientific evidence of divine healing.
The theme of the unique gathering was “Spirituality and Medicine” and was held under the auspices of the World Christian Doctors Network (WCDN), founded by Dr. Jaerock Lee, senior pastor of Manmin Joong-ang Church, Seoul, Korea.
“WCDN is an international Christian medical organization that addresses not only urgent questions facing the Christian medical community today, but is also the first of its kind that objectively confirms and examines instances of healing by the power of God,” said a spokesperson for the organization.
Delegates were delighted toÂhear of a congratulatory message for the conference sent by Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, President of the Philippines and also from Francisco T. Duque III, M.D., Msc., the country’s Secretary of Health.
Keynote addresses were delivered by the Hon. Antonio Yapha, Jr., M.D., Chairman of the Committee on Health and a member of the Philippines’ House of Representatives, and the Rev. Bishop Romeo Corpuz Sr., President of All Creation Global Network Ministries, Inc.
“The conference emphasized God as ‘the healer’ and an exchange of notes on cases of divine healing through prayer,” said the WCDN spokesperson.
Following the lecture on “Spirituality and Medicine III” by Dr. Joonha Hwang M.D., Ph.D., Chairman of the WCDN, real medical data backing claims of divine healing were presented by physicians on maladies such as gastric cancer, quadriplegia, intracerebral hemorrhage, severe disability, thoracic tumor, Celiac disease, infertility, facial burns, tennis elbow tendonitis, liver cirrhosis, and other incurable diseases.
“When the presentations of God’s healing were complete, the audience responded with applause and then shared with one another about the grace they had just received,” said the spokesperson.Â
Dr. Sven Frederik, a participantÂfrom Denmark, remarked that, “If this kind of medical conference could be held in northern Europe, many intellectuals would accept the power of God.”
