News For This Month: Medications
Medications Restricted by Different Religions
Medicine is anything that is associated with preventing, diagnosing and treatment of illnesses. All people experience some signs if they have an illness. The doctor then determines if the person has a disease. The doctor then gives medication mainly in form of an injection or swallowing drugs if he/she discovers the person is ill. A religion is a group of people with unshakable belief in supernatural powers.
The major religions in the world are Christianity, Muslim, Hinduism and Buddhism. These groups have strong unseen powers that determine a person’s destiny. These religious groups advise their followers to avoid the use of some medication, drinks and food among others things completely. Use of the restricted things by the members of these religions is going against the rules and it has consequences. The following are the medication restricted by different religious groups.
Christians should avoid using abortion and children control medication. Family planning medication are medicines that controls the number of children a woman can sire. Abortion is the act of removing the fetus from the womb of a pregnant woman. God instructed Adam and Eve to go and fill the world after He created them. Christianity restricts the methods that control the population including medication. A Christian should stay clear from birth control and termination. A Christian is supposed to read Billy Graham Quotes and like the Christ Like Media Facebook page to learn more on this.
The Church of Christ members should keep off from the use of medicine. In case a Church of Christ member gets sick, he/she should avoid visiting a hospital. The member is supposed to seek medication from a Christian Scientist Practitioner who heals through prayers. A member is only supposed to visit the health facility if he/she has broken bones. The doctor will only set the bones then the member should seek prayers. Members of this kind of churches normally die because of diseases since their scientists are unable to cure many diseases.
Some Christianity groups and Muslim restrict the use of some animal-derived drugs. Pork products are barred from Muslims and some Christianity groups. In the Bible, Jesus drove out some demons from two demon-possessed men and sent them to a herd of pigs. Immediately, the pigs went down a steep rock into a large water body where they died. These Christianity groups argue that if you consume pork and its products, you will get demons. In the Quran, Allah has restricted the use of swine flesh and its products.
Rastafarians are barred from using medication derived from animal products. Rastafarians are vegetarians. They are supposed to only consume lightly cooked foods. These are the drugs that should be avoided by various religious groups.
