Are we affecting our culture or is our culture affecting us? “Getting sick people well without drugs or surgery since 1895” at one time was our motto,as was “drugs are dumb whether pushed or prescribed”. How has that worked out for our profession and its culture?

    It’s Gods will.

      Was that sarcasm or are you truly an atheist/agnostic?

    I believe that God is omnipotent and he is running the world so what is happening with chiropractic is his will, why would that view cause you to think that I am an atheist?

      Being all powerful does not mean “running” everything. If God’s will were exercised none of mankind would be perishing. You are leaving free will out of the equation when it is what got us in this mess

    William, whoever said that God was not running everything, that God’s will is not being carried out, the bible?

      Richard, I allow my granddaughter to have a few spoonfuls of ice cream because she wants it (her volition) but my overall plan says when that educated desire on her part is enough. My educated intelligence is smarter than hers. God allows our free will up to a point (He did not create robots with no will of their own but will not allow people’s volition to supersede His overall Plan.

      Where did you find your revelation of God’s will – I certainly have not seen it in the true Bible

    I agree, God’s plan is to have medicine serve 99.9% of the population and chiropractic serve 0.001% of the population, just because our small intelligence thinks that everyone should be under chiropractic care doesn’t mean that it’s God’s will. I hope that at some point God’s will is for chiropractic to serve more of the population but that is my will. I don’t think that practicing medicine with a chiropractic license has done much good and may eventually cause the end of the chiropractic profession. I hope to continue to correct vertebral subluxations to allow a greater expression of life.
