A common tactic that Christians use to dismiss the question “Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?” is to say, “No Christian believes that God is a genie. Prayer doesn’t work that way,” or “The Bible never says that God will answer prayers to heal amputated limbs,” or something similar. But then we find pages like this, straight from the mouth of a devoted Christian:
There is is, plain as the nose on your face: Prayers are Answered.
The author quotes two Bible verses to justify his belief that Prayers are Answered:
1) John 16:24 – “Up to now you have made no request in my name: do so, and it will be answered, so that your hearts may be full of joy”
2) John 10:10 – “But I came so that my sheep will have life and so that they will have everything they need.”
The author opines:
Read John 16:24, you’ll see God waiting and anticipating for you to ask. He says, “UP UNTIL NOW, you still haven’t asked anything”. It’s as if He’s saying, “What are ya waiting for? Ask now!”
He also says, “Now, what are you waiting for? Pray and Ask God right now!”
So, to all Christians, Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?
