I guess god's magic only works for a short time, because later she will be in pain again. They will go to doctors, but are very stubborn when it comes to listening to one, because god will take care of it.

As I mentioned before I find this a seemingly contradictory marriage. I mean the blending of the joyful music and rejoicing, with the hatred. I wonder if the megachurches like Hillsong push the hatred angle.
