Yes, that is the definition of criminal negligence.
Of course its neglect and the child can't fend for themselves.
I'm a Christian that knows God wants us to act when we can. We have doctors for a reason. We have advanced for a reason. Just because God can, doesn't mean He will. People who forget human help exists are just doing the opposite of what God wants.
Plot twist: after all the praying, god got tired of your constant praying so he made doctors so you can be healthy
It's negligence, your religion doesn't exlude you from your legal obligation to look after your children.
God gave you medicine. Use it. You don't jump off a cliff and expect God to catch ya
CHILD ABUSE. PERIOD.
Under most law books, you cannot be arrested unless you refuse care AFTER the government steps in. I say that's the line.
