'Miracle' as pastor returns from deep freeze

Karen van Rooyen

Pastor Ray McCauley's recovery since heart surgery in May has been called a "miracle".
The Rhema Bible Church founder had an emergency operation after suffering a major heart attack on the eve of an interdenominational prayer day before the World Cup.
This week, church administrator Giet Khosa revealed how the severity of the procedure required McCauley's brain to be frozen for 10 hours.
"Medical science has proven that when someone has a heart attack, lowering body temperature can prevent brain damage," he said. "So can cooling the brain itself.
"Medically, we were advised that the chances of survival were very low, but God has done a miracle in Pastor Ray because he is recovering at an amazing rate. Even doctors are surprised at the speed of his recovery."
Khosa, who said he had been authorised to speak about McCauley's medical condition, said doctors ruled out brain damage.

All sorts of comments, variously snide, caustic and derisive, spring to mind here concerning McCauley’s brain, his noble heart and sub-zero temperatures.

Agreed, its at times really tough to keep thoughts to yourself. It didnt hurt that he probably had top-notch skilled docs by his side 24/7, and didnt have to go to a public hospital like most of his congregation are forced to do. Miracle indeed.....

Just waiting for these idiots to start making the claim that he was raised from death. ::)

Medical science says "freeze the brain, it'll prevent damage". Medical science succeeds. God gets the credit. It doesn't get any more typical.

Of course, God doesn't get the credit for giving "the great Ray" a life-threatening heart-attack in the first place. Perhaps that's to blame on medical science (and not the stuff he's been snorting).
