“People are dying for the lack of the gospel message; eternal separation from God in Hell is their future. We are in a position second to none to reach the lost in our local area. We certainly have a greater access to non-Christians in a congenial environment than most fulltime ministers….Our territory, our peculiar mission field, is our patients.”—
These are words by Dr Richard Scott, a GP who told to a suicidal and depressed 24-year-old patient that he should become a Christian, because Christianity might offer him a great benefit, greater than the religion to wich the patient adheres. The patient left the consultation very upset and he felt Scott had belittled his own faith. Scott stated that “to prescribe Jesus” was merely an exercise of his “professional judgment”.
So, for this guy, evangelism is part of the job of doctors. And he thinks it’s a good idea to say to a vulnerable patient that he should abandon his belief to embrace Christianity. Because, this is the message, Christianity will help you with your problem.
Somehow all this makes perfect sense, but you need to have no ethics.
