Devout Christian Scientist and actor Val Kilmer is attributing his recent recovery from oral cancer to his faith in the love of Jesus.
iResponding to a question about what he wanted people to know about having and beating cancer in a Reddit AMA Q&A session Wednesday, the 57 year old opened up about the role of his faith as a Christian Scientist.
"I am very grateful for all the prayers and good thoughts from around the world. People that know I am a Christian Scientist make the assumption that I have somehow endangered myself. But many, many people have been healed by prayer throughout recorded history. And many, many people have died by whatever was modern medicine," Kilmer said.
Mary Baker Eddy discovered and founded Christian Science, according to the Christian Science website. The faith appreciates God as "infinite love, and so invariably good that a clear glimpse of this through prayer has power to heal, redeem, and restore anyone."
