A lot of "theologies" and world views and philosophies work on a beach or on a golf course.
"Do whatever feels good"
"Whatever works for you is cool"
"If you pray hard enough and the right way, God will give you stuff"
"Our body is just a prison we must escape"
"This world is all there is"
Again, just about anything will get you through good times.
Only the Truth works in a hospital room.
