13. I refuse to pray that way.
There is no "combining" prayer and medicine. Here's what happens when you do both: If you pray and apply medicine, and the patient gets better, it's because God healed him. If he doesn't, it's because medicine failed. Once God is involved, He always "wins." No one ever says, "Wow, God sure let him down. Darn God."

If there is a God, and he is all-powerful and in control of everything, he certainly doesn't need my prayers.
