Prayer without action

James McGrath has an excellent post on the issue of the parents who refused to seek medical care for their sick daughter, choosing to rely, instead, on prayer.  The girl slipped into a diabetic coma and died.  The parents have been charged with second degree murder, but people have argued that this was their religious right.  James decided to approach it from a biblical perspective, and after discussing the issue in the context of three passages from the bible, he concludes

This is yet one more example of a “Biblical” Christianity that doesn’t know the Bible. Behold the damage that it does. Dare we go so far to say that those who advocate these ignorant forms of Christianity are complicit in murder?
