Does Sean Kingston credit prayers and God for saving his life?

Sure looks like it the way. He was in a jet ski accident in June that could have been fatal and the most important thing people want to mention about this is the first tweet he made in Recovery:

“Feeling alot better! GOD IS GREAT! Thanks for all the prayers and support! Love you ALL!”

In the wake of the accident, other celebrities who love telling people they pray (i.e. Justin Bieber) were quick to tweet about how much prayer was aimed Kingston’s way, no doubt enabling fans into believing that prayer will somehow make the difference between Kingston’s survival and death. Never mind whatever skill doctors and medical teams in general might bring to the table. It’s all just God working his magic… gag me with a spoon, as the old phrase goes.

Why can’t people give credit to those who really deserve it?

    Gag me with a spoon, too. My Sweetie had has life-threatening medical crises (that’s a plural) and it’s a wonder that guy is still alive. People tell me that god has plans for him, or that god isn’t ready to take him yet, or that it was god who saved his life.

    Never mind the doctors who performed the emergency triple bypass. God saved him when his artery bisected.

    And never mind the stupendous surgical team who defied the probabilities and saved his right arm which everyone was expecting would be amputated. Those doctors did a stupendous job, against all odds. That operation was legendary, and medical people were talking about it, it was so good.

    And don’t forget dumb luck, blind coincidence. Never mind that sometimes things just happen that way for no reason. Normally I’m not at home at that time, but I just happened to be there that particular day and called 911. Just dumb luck. If I hadn’t been there and sent for the ambulance he would have lost that arm.

    Of course people tell me that it was god who arranged for me to be there that day. I don’t argue with them, nor do I snarl, “Well, if ‘god’ is so damn powerful, why didn’t he just *not* allow the clot to block blood flow into the arm? Why does ‘god’ just *not* cause these things to happen in the first place?” I’m not looking to get into a fight with neighbors – but jeez….

    It’s good that things worked out positively. Sorry he had to go through all that. Sounds awful.
