One wonders what it takes for Oregon’s Followers of Christ Church to decide that perhaps it is time to modify their religious guidelines. After the death of Ava Worthington which is now a criminal matter here, now his cousin has died from lack of medical intervention. The sixteen-year-old boy, was the latest victim of the church, which appears willing to run out of children before they run out of faith.
It appears that the group again used the power of prayer to heal him as they did with 15-month-old Ava. Beagley had inflammation in a tube leading from his bladder – the urethra – that made him unable to urinate.. The result was that he filled up with urine — eventually destroying his bladder and kidneys and causing heart failure.
Oregon recently lifted protections for such faith-healing, so this could easily become a criminal case.
