The Christian narrative portrays James parents as of Strong base of Christianity and acts as the decision makers to their son. Mike and Joanne are displayed to be practicing religious autonomy and therefore struggle to decide either to surrender the life of their son to physicians or God with the belief that God would heal him. The Case study goes further to reveal the many pressing issues linked to the Christian narratives.It explores on the difference in Christian faith for various denominations. Every denomination presents its way of interpretation differently. For example Protestants tend to differ with Baptists. Catholics on the other hand possible through Doctors. Since it is physicians who have the best knowledge in medicine and science to treat diseases and all Christians are called upon to embrace all biomedical applications and science in prevention of unneeded pains or sufferings in respect to human life sanctity.
