Ben Carson is no stranger to most of us. His career highlights include the first successful separation of Siamese twins in 1987. In 2001, Dr. Carson was named by CNN and TIME Magazine as one of the nation’s 20 foremost physicians and scientists. He was selected by the Library of Congress as one of 1989’s “Living Legends.” In June, 2008, he was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bush, the highest civilian honor you can get in the country. Many have called him ‘The Hands of God.”.
In the midst of all of this, he pro-ports to be a man of faith. He spoke at LifePoint Assembly of God in Iowa recently, and moved the crowd by telling them that after three hours locked in the bathroom one day reading Proverbs he became a changed man.
He proclaims his salvation was assured after this confinement by saying:
“When I came out, my temper was gone and I’ve never had a problem since,”
He issues an unapologetic stance that he raises funds for faith organizations and is, “unabashedly and entirely pro-life. Human life begins at conception and innocent life must be protected.” As a devout a Seventh-day Adventist Ben must adhere to the tenets of his faith belief that God transforms, triumphs, inhabits,redeems, creates and loves.
He defends his faith publicly, never shrinking away from confrontation or denial of Christ.
Earlier this week there was a harsh query on where was his respect for life when he wrote a paper in the November 1992 Human Pathology Journal, and in it, he detailed the use of cells taken from two aborted babies?
