Her father, Dale Neumann, was found guilty by a US court of killing his daughter by praying for her recovery rather than seeking medical care. Neumann's wife, Leilana, was convicted earlier this year.
Medical experts told the court that the girl could have survived if she had received treatment, including insulin and fluids, before she stopped breathing.
Neumann, who in the past had studied to be a Pentecostal minister, was reported as saying, "If I go to a doctor, I am putting the doctor before God," he said "I am not believing what he said he would do."
This tragic act of misguided faith prematurely ended the life of an innocent young girl, who's parents lost sight of the fact that they had a duty to love their daughter as well as God.
Example: To shout + What you say when you feel pain = A colour
Answer: Yellow (Yell + Ow).
01 A light brown colour + To leave = A dance.
02 A store's announcement + A type of women's clothing = A buildings location.
03 A vehicle + An animal pal = A floor covering.
04 The ocean + A father's boy = Part of the year.
05 Another name for dad + A yellow veggie = A white fluffy snack.
Good luck with solving this brainteaser!
In the 18th century when many men wore wigs, the most important men wore the biggest wigs. Hence today important people are call big wigs.
BITE THE BULLET
This old saying means to grin and bear a painful situation. It comes from the days before anaesthetics. A soldier about to undergo an operation was given a bullet to bite.
This phrase comes from John 20: 24-27. After his resurrection Jesus appeared to his disciples. However one of them, named Thomas, was absent. When the others told him that Jesus was alive Thomas said he would not believe until he saw the marks on Jesus' hands and the wound in his side caused by a Roman spear. Jesus appeared again and told Thomas 'Stop doubting and believe!'
If a fleet won a clear victory the ships would sail back to port with their colours proudly flying from their masts.
