Those of us of the faith community are grateful that an Aug. 23 letter writer (“Survivor had great help, but it was not divine”) has figured out how God acts or should act. People have been puzzling over that question for centuries. Despite his somewhat narrow view, many of us would prefer to see God’s hand in healing and help — as in the case of an American doctor brought back from Africa after he contracted the Ebola virus — even if it is not always according to our preconceived notions.

The Aug. 23 letter writer’s complaint about “toxic theology” misses a key point: It is that so-called “toxic theology” that inspired the good doctor to go to Africa to treat those living in poverty and lacking medical care in the first place.
