I would have believed her. Having seen the instant healing that she experienced, I would not doubt anything that she said.

If I were a character in the story, I would have relied upon my own basic concepts as well as intuition to start believing the story of Leah Warner about God. To some extent, I would have applied my rationality. I believe that 'fame' is one of the signs of such an occurrence of true manifestation of God. The attitude of Dr. Marcus towards the incident in the story is an ideal one!

I think I would have believed her. I believe in the One who gave the message, not the one who delivered the message. I believe that God can and does speak to people, and the message that Leah received was not unlike something God would say based on the Bible. Her medical recovery was irrefutable.

Years ago I would not have believed her because her message did not fit with my religious beliefs. Now I might think she had a true vision and accepted her message.
