This morning at the church during the bible study they were again talking about physical healing by god of various ailments. We were then asked to write down anything which was on our minds. I wrote (roughly) this and the speaker read it aloud to the group out of his own volition. Mine was the only writing read out. Might have helped some along the way toward deconversion, but again, hard to tell.

KIR wrote:Psychological pain is well documented to cause physical illness on occasion (psychosomatic/psychogenic illness).
It stands to reason that peace of mind may well cure physical illness from time to time then. Belief in a god(s) may well cause such peace of mind sometimes, although I doubt it is the only such cause possible.
