Plus, God is just a complete dick. Honestly, how do people even tolerate Him, much less worship Him?

In response to the man with the severe allergy. I am sorry for the things you went through and how long you had to endure. It must have been exasperating. I am thankful that you did find an answer to what your allergy was.
I recently read the web page on how “God does not answer prayers”.
As a Christian I am saddened to see this website. I want you to know that God does answer prayer. He answers every prayer. He does it in his timing and in his way. He does not always answer how we think he should. He answers with a No, Not Yet, or sometimes an immediate result. Most often the answer is not received exactly as we imagined it would be.

Yet I must ask you Janelle, why not. Where is the “wait” message other then simple silence that is indistinguishable from the lack of response you would get from something that doesn’t exist. If we’re to wait then why not say that, it’s not hard, takes less then a human second to say, and “Don’t take Aspirin,” only takes a few moments more. For an all powerful deity that seems kinda immature. It’s not like the guy was asking to win the lottery or for a new car.

If you are sick you must go to the elders of the church and let them pray for you with their oil.

I am LonestarGrandad. I found this blog linked to the website I started the thread on. Janelle, I believed that God would answer prayer. I believed it like the sun was coming up tomorrow. I so wanted to believe that it was true. All these ministers “spoke the word of God” over me for years. Through them God told me all kinds of things. But He never told me the one thing that would have completely changed my life.
I wasn’t asking Him to replace an amputated limb, or to cure cancer, or to give me sight. I only wanted Him to do what His Book said He would do. I wanted Him to speak to me in “a still small voice”, or “in dreams and visions”, or even through one of his ministers. If He is omnipotent, why didn’t He simply get three words to me. I didn’t need a miracle, just a moment.
This, and so many other experiences over the course of almost 30 years have lead me to believe that either God exists and hates me so much He enjoyed watching me suffer, or He doesn’t exist and never saw me suffer.
