Modern Medical Science Heals Blindness Better than Jesus

    I posted some time back that I was having vision difficulties. At Sydney Eye Hospital it was determined that I had no other serious eye problems except a growing cataract.

    I was referred to another hospital for a removal of the natural lens in my left eye and its replacement by an artificial lens,

    Had that operation a week ago - no problems except my iris did not expand enough to permit the lens procedure, so they had to use hooks to expand it, turning a less than 30 minute operation into a 90 minute procedure.

    All very professional and first class treatment. Can now see clearly with my left eye maybe there is better vision than I've had for a long time.

    I reflected that Jesus healed on one person on that day, while the hospital I attended replaced the lens for 9 people who had this problem,

    And best of all for me, no charge at all because its covered by Australia's socialised medical system.

    I'm happy for you and glad you can now see very well.

    We have to remember that the recorded miracles in the bible does not mean those are the only ones to have occurred. There is a lot that was not recorded.

    The other 8 had no insurance!

    "There is a lot that was not recorded",

    Tenacious,how then do you have knowledge of these unrecorded miracles? Or do you mean that they are not in the Bible but recorded elsewhere?

    Fulltime, I too have had successful cataract surgery thanks to the miracle of modern medicine and the Aus healthcare system.My perception of color is now a little different,I love it. One eye sees blue light and the original equipment sees yellow light; very obvious when viewing white objects. Fascinating!

    I'm glad the procedure was successful fulltimestudent. It's reassuring to know if I need to have that done in the future I may see improvement in sight I hadn't had for a long time. It puts a positive spin on it thanks.

    I have cataracts in both eyes. Not severe at the moment, but will need to be done in next two years. Totally amazing results from people I have spoken to about it. Modern science can do so much now. Its not surprising that in the UK, however much money we put into the National Health Service there will never be enough to keep pace with all the advancement in medical procedures.

    @ Tantalon

    No, the bible itself says in John 21:25 that if all the signs/miracles Jesus did were written down all the books in the world could not contain the volume of them. I know it's hyperbole but it signifies he did many more than what was recorded and left for us to read.

    This reminds me of an older JW loyalist I once knew being disturbed at the prospect of nanotechnology being used to artificially prolong the human lifespan...

    ...and theorizing that God would drop the Big A to prevent it (similar to confusing the languages at Babel to prevent humankind from somehow reaching the heavens), as if such an advance would be in opposition to the shorter lifespans imposed on us by the expulsion from Eden.
