A close Christian friend of mine has a 10 year old daughter who has brain cancer and has trusted in the Lord consistently until the cancer got worse and there was no hope given by doctors for a cure. I know my friend is desperate to get her child healed but recently went to a Tong Ren session and said there would be a ‘doll and a hammer’ used.
“I was quite disturbed about this and sent her an email begging her to not do this. I believe it is against the first commandment. She is angry with me and went to this session anyway. I worry that this practice will only make matters worse for her child…what do you think?”
