Why would anyone believe that an imaginary “god” can heal?

Why would anyone believe that an imaginary “god” can heal? Is it just blind superstition brought forward to the 21st century through absolute ignorance? Case in point:

Faith healing in Oregon: A picture worth a thousand words

Another couple from the Followers of Christ church in Oregon City stand accused of criminal mistreatment for deliberately withholding medical care from their child. Timothy and Rebecca Wyland of Beavercreek believe in treating sickness with prayer rather than medicine, even when prayer doesn’t work.

Their infant daughter, Alayna, has a serious eye problem, which they chose not to treat. Someone notified authorities and the state intervened, and now the Wylands are trying to regain custody of their daughter.

    This is such a sad story. Those parents deserve jail time for this. Hopefully it isn’t too late for the child to be healed.
