"We have uncovered many testimonies of how the power of God has healed patients and when doctors hear this kind of news, they become curious. They want to know if it's true or just a story that someone has made up." -Dr. Joonha Hwang
(Brisbane, Australia) - Dr. Joonha Hwang, a top South Korean doctor who graduated from medical school in his homeland, has a medical license as well as a PhD in Neurophysiology, has revealed why he believes in spiritual healing. In an interview during the 8th Annual Christian Medical Conference held in Brisbane, Australia, he said that he has given up his medical practice to dedicate his life to investigating miracles that cannot be explained medically.

"We have uncovered many testimonies of how the power of God has healed patients and when doctors hear this kind of news, they become curious," he said. "They want to know if it's true or just a story that someone has made up. That is why we put on these ‘Spirituality and Medicine' conferences each year and then present medical data before and after the patient got prayed for. As far as I know, we at WCDN, are the only Christian medical organization that invites doctors to come and hear from other doctors and are then able to openly discuss the evidence of divine healing."
Why was Australia chosen for the latest conference?
"Australia," replied Dr. Hwang, "is a very westernized and secular country with what we first thought were just a few doctors who were interested in divine healing. At first, we were actually worried about inviting Australian doctors because, as I said, it is so westernized and very secular, but we are pleased to say that we found some very good Christian doctors here who are interested, in fact very enthusiastic, about using the power of God in medicine. So I am very happy about that."
I then asked him what he would say to doctors who do not believe in divine healing and do not believe that God can heal.
"I want to say, please come to one of our WCDN conferences and you can see for yourself, the evidence of divine healing backed up with clear medical data and then you can ask any questions about your doubts or curiosity, and you will become convicted that God is working now just as He worked in the past in the Bible period."
