God Made A Mistake!

God Made a Mistake !

If all you do is read headlines or titles, the one above certainly will rile you up if you believe in God.  Assuming that everyone reading this does believe in God, then allow me to explain the sarcasm of my title.  No, I do not actually believe God is capable of making a mistake. I make this inflammatory title statement to call into question our healthcare actions that seem to be predicated on the idea that we were somehow made imperfectly.

Let’s start with Genesis 1:26 from the New Living Translation (NLT)

Then God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us. They will reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, the livestock, all the wild animals on the earth, and the small animals that scurry along the ground.”

I notice that God did not say “…somewhat like us”, or “…like us, but a little less perfect than us.” He said “…in our image, to be like us.”

Now, I’m going to take a “leap of faith” here and say that I doubt God suffers from any chronic illness or requires medications to get through the day. After all, God is perfect. But if we were made in his image to be like him, then why do 68.1% of the population in the U.S. take prescription medications according to a recent study published in the journal, Mayo Clinic Proceedings? Why is it that most Americans suffer from one chronic ailment or another? Why do we feel that we were made so badly that our children need over 50 vaccinations just to prevent disease? Illness and sickness are so accepted that we spend about 18% of this nation’s gross domestic product on healthcare. 

From a faith perspective, the answer is simple. If we were made perfect, then it would take a man-made interference to separate us from perfection. This separation would lead us to sickness, pain and ill health.

Now I know that some of you may be saying, “Do you mean to say that my sickness is my fault?” No, that is not what I’m saying. Fault or blame for illness is a subject for a completely different time. What I am saying is that only separation from the way God intended us to exist could be the cause of sickness and disease. 

Let me give an example. God gave us clean fresh air to breath. However, if we run into a burning building and breath in the smoky air, we will eventually succumb to smoke inhalation.  In a much slower sense, if you smoke, or breathe polluted air for most of your life, there will also be a negative health consequence.  Now, while the smoking would be a lifestyle choice, breathing polluted air may be a result of where you live and not under your immediate control.

So, although the question of blame is best left for another discussion, any interference with the God given process for how we are suppose to function leads to health consequences.

On a more common scale, do we really believe that all the drugs we are putting into our body do not interfere with the normal perfect God-given process for our bodies? Did God make us deficient in the chemicals we add to our systems? Did God make us weak, so that the only way we can deal with a difficult life situation is with anti-depressants? Did he make us so that we need drugs to sleep, to wake, or to produce children?

Most of health care today is nothing more than the treatment of conditions that we should not have in the first place. While I fully understand the need for emergency care in an accident or crisis, most of care today is chronic long-term drug treatment. In fact, if you watch the drug commercials on TV, you will notice that almost none talk about curing an issue so you will not need that drug anymore. Most all commercials talk about controlling your symptoms and continuing to take that drug, presumably forever.

Is our state of caring for each other in our medical system as God intended? I think not! As a chiropractor, I have dedicated my life’s work toward correcting man-made interference to the human nervous system. I know that the controlling system of our body is the nervous system and that any interference to that system will result in poor health.

I do not treat people’s pain or conditions.  I remove interference to the God-given ability of the body to heal itself. When I do this, people heal. I do not and will not take any credit for that healing. Only God heals. My purpose is to remove the one type of physical interference I am trained to correct.

I see every patient as a perfect expression of God’s creation. It is the interference to this expression that has resulted in poor health.  My job is to remove that interference!  God did not make a mistake. We do when we think we know better than He how to heal.


God does the Healing

After looking at the picture of me holding one of my two 6-day-old granddaughters in my office, I noticed the sign above my head that reads, "We move the bone, God does the healing". Upon reflection I realized the miracle that I was holding was created by God.  He gave her everything she needs to be 100% healthy.  The only thing that could prevent health would be interference in the God-given abilities she was born with.

This is why she received her first chiropractic adjustment at less than 5 minutes old. I wanted to remove any man-made interference called subluxations which were created by a very medicalized birth process.

I realize that a chiropractic adjustment does not heal. I do not heal. All healing comes from God.  My only job, and the one to which I have dedicated my life to, is to detect, locate and correct the interference to the God-give abilities from subluxations.

Mother and babies are doing well, they are subluxation free and are expressing their God-given innate health. I am blessed to be able to play a part in this by removing interference from His healing.

God Bless,
Dr Bob


If God made us - why do we interfere?

God heals - We adjust at Braile Chiropractic in Marietta GeorgiaPsalm 139:13-14 
New Living Translation (NLT) 

You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.We were made.

 

Many years ago I wrote a short article called " The POWER that made the body HEALS the body - For all Those Who Consider Themselves Christians and Don't Believe that God Creates Junk ."  In this article I questioned why mankind consistently has a lack of faith in Gods creation. I raise the question, "Are we not created in the image of God? Since God loves us didn't He make us with everything we need for health, happiness, and a fulfilled life?"  

I was reminded of this again as I received my daily bible verse from YouVerse. The verse was Psalm 139:13-14 listed above. If you have never read my article, please take a few minutes and open the link.  It will make you think, it could make you angry, and it just might change the way you look at life and health. 


What Would Jesus Do About Measles?

What Would Jesus Do About Measles?

by Marco Cáceres

... the problem with Dr. Offit’s reasoning is that it assumes that allowing children to catch measles and allow their God-given immune system to fully engage and ultimately give them life-long immunity to the disease is somehow abusive . He assumes that doctors and scientists and pharmaceutical companies have come up with a clever way to improve on God’s creation and allow the human immune system to effectively stave off infectious diseases—as if those diseases were not also another one of God’s inventions, probably designed to occasionally test and strengthen the immune system to enable humanity to thrive.

One Gift from the Lord

If the Lord were going to give you one great gift in your life what would it be?

Christian Chiropractor Dr Braile in Marietta Atlanta GeorgiaWould it be riches?

Would it be fame?

Would it be power?

Would it be confidence?

Would it be comfort?

Or would He give you the ability to save?

It has taken me 59 years of my life to recognize that He has given me the greatest gift of all.  Through all the hardships of family, work and life, He has always given me the opportunity to serve, and save.

My wife will tell you that she was in a bad place when we met. She will say that I rescued her.  I feel it is the other way around. In essence, with His help, we saved each other.

My children are adopted and came from unfortunate backgrounds. He gave us the opportunity to save them from the life that would have been much less.

We have an amateur animal rescue were we have saved animals of many kinds who would have been doomed. They now get to live out their lives with food, stability, and comfort.

And as a chiropractor, I get to serve and save people every day.  Although they may not always know what would have followed, I am blessed to know that an adjustment changes the course of their life from that point forward.

All of these things do not always bring material rewards. There are many times in my life when I questioned these choices and asked why it was so hard.  But now I know that the things of this world were not the promise He made to me.  I now know that the gift I have been given was far greater that I could ever imagine.  

I am thankful that I have had the blessing of being able to save.


God or Science

God or Science

God or Science from Braile Chiropractic in Marietta, West Cobb GA

Because something can be explained by science,
does not mean that it is not of God.

For it is He who set up gravity,
He who set the laws which suspend the stars in the heavens,
and He who made the forces to combine the smallest of elements.

So do not ask, "Is it God or science that heals?"
For the master craftsman always uses His best tools.


The First Christmas

The First Christmas

Around 2000 years ago the baby Jesus was born in a manger in Bethlehem. This blessed event would have been looked upon quite differently if seen from a medical perspective. Let us examine some so-called "modern" thinking about this event.

What a big risk our Heavenly Father took when He sent His Son to us in the way He did. First of all, the Virgin Mary was much to young to bear such an important child. Plus, no tests were performed to see if she was even capable of carrying the child full term. Also, Mary was not adequately prepared. She attended no birthing classes, did not practice her breathing, nor did she read up on the birth process.

It should also be noted that some safety procedures were ignored during this pregnancy. I mean, no blood tests were done, no obstetric examinations, no ultra sound, or even the listening and monitoring of the child`s heart beat. And surely, for such an important baby, an amniocentesis should have been done! Not even the proper regime of vitamins were given to the mother for her nutrition. When you think about it, we`re taking a major risk here.

And just think of the terrible conditions for the birth itself. Certainly that stable was not sterile. And with all those animals in the same room it`s a wonder there wasn`t a major infection. Not even simple clean sheets, or a surgical masks for the three Wise Men were used. And I`m quite sure that Mary was not on the proper delivery table with her feet in the stirrups.

If that`s not bad enough, common medical practice was ignored from this point on. Certainly an important woman like Mary should have been given some pain relievers or a spinal block to help ease her discomfort. Of course an episiotomy should have been called for to help out. I`ll bet that a set of clamps weren`t even available in case of need. Not to mention the lack of fetal monitoring equipment in case an emergency cesarean was required. I mean this whole procedure sounds like a nightmare.

From this point it still got worse. No surgical instruments to cut the cord, no silver nitrate for the baby`s eyes, no fetal intensive care unit, no alcohol rubs, no temperature control cubicles, no suction of the child`s nose or throat, none of the modern safety precautions that should have been used.

The more I think about it, the more I`m convinced this entire procedure was a menace to the mother and child. Someone should be liable for mal-practice in a case like this. With the state of things as they were, I`ll bet the child Jesus never even got His required vaccinations!

I don`t know,... but if it were up to modern medicine, this should have been done much differently.

God sure took a big chance.....

... or just maybe we need to rethink the things we think are necessary, and stop interfering with normal God-given miracles.

 

Cherish the miracles we all receive this holiday season,

Dr Bob


Belief that we can be healthy

Posted: May 29, 2014

Faith and Healing God's way at Braile Chiropractic Marietta GA

The plaques and writings on the walls of our clinic offer an inspirational message, but they also offer a literal one.   The three that come to my mind are:

  • “With God all things are possible.”
  • “We move the bone God does the healing.”
  • “Faith makes all things possible not easy.”

These are more than just nice words, for they are a truth and a basic when it comes to health. Over the years I have been blessed to see people heal from things they were told would take their lives.  I certainly do not claim to heal them as healing comes from a source far above me.  But it is that same Power that created us, that heals us.

When someone is healed from something they did not expect, they often refer to it as a “miracle”.  It is interesting to note that when someone heals from something they expected to recover from, they do not call that a miracle.  I submit that it is your belief system that determines if something is called a miracle.

If we truly believed that “all things are possible”, then why would we doubt that we can be totally healthy?  I meet people daily who insist they can be somewhat better, but have a liturgy of excuses why they must continue to have the health issues they have.  Many of the excuses sound like these:

  • It’s hereditary; everyone in my family has it.
  • There’s nothing that can be done for ( fill in the blank ), I just have to learn to live with it.
  • It’s just seasonal allergies.
  • It’s stress, or I’m depressed.
  • At my age, I’m expected to have these things.
  • If I take my medication, I have it under control.

If all things are possible, why do we accept excuses for not being healthy?  In Mathew 9:22 Jesus says, “your faith has healed you.”  In several places in the bible Jesus makes this same statement. He did NOT qualify his statement by saying, “you can heal if you go a live a life without stress, or if you had different parents, of if it is not allergy season.”

As a chiropractor, I understand that I do not heal or cure anyone.  As one of our wall plaques clearly states, “We move the bone, God does the healing.”  Understanding where all healing comes from, and having faith that all is possible, removes the fear that a health issue cannot be concurred.  


Blessed to be a chiropractor.

Sometimes God just gives you a message that you have to write down and act on.


I Cannot Save You - I Cannot Heal You

Posted: February 10, 2013
By: Dr Robert Braile

As a Christian, I know that I cannot save you.  Only Christ can do that.  I can, however, lead you to Christ where you can be saved. Most Christians see it this way and understand that they do not actually save people.  God Saves!

For me healing is the same way.  As good as a chiropractor as I might be, I cannot heal even the simplest of problems.  In fact, no doctor can heal or cure you. There has never been a doctor at any time in any place who has healed or cured anything.

Who heals you ask?  The answer is the same, God does.  You see, if I could heal, then I could walk into a funeral home, give a great adjustment to a corpse and the person would rise and walk again.

What is required for healing is the one thing that only God puts in you, Life itself.  So what do I, or any doctor for that matter do?  Well the best we can do is to remove obstructions from that God-given ability to heal, that everyone already possesses.

Each one of us can heal just as long as there is life in our body.  The human body is a wonderful creation of mechanisms that control every aspect of health and healing.  As a chiropractor, I remove interference to the nervous system that controls all function in the boy, thus allowing the body to heal. 

Even a surgeon, faced with a patient with a bullet wound, can only remove the bullet, the obstruction to healing.  Then it is up to the body’s own God-given ability to heal the wound caused by the surgeon.

People often underestimate the amazing ability God has built into our bodies to heal and be healthy. All too often we, as a society, turn to drugs and procedures that do not heal and in fact decrease health.  Fear, and lack of faith in our God-given healing power are often the reason that people turn outside first, instead of looking for a healing answer within.

For over 30 years I have been blessed to see what many may call miracles. People call them miracles because they did not expect the result.  I just call it another day in the office.  Maybe it is because I expect miracles.  I see life itself as a miracle.  My job is simply to remove interference from the God-given ability to heal, and watch the “miracles” unfold.
