A response to “10 questions that every intelligent Christian must answer”

Here is a long and lucid response to the video entitled, “10 questions that every intelligent Christian must answer”:

A response to “10 questions that every intelligent Christian must answer”

About midway through the document, we get to the meat of the matter:

Question #1: Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?

I have to admit the question is quite clever. The problem is that it’s based on a false premise (that is, that christianity teaches that God heals everybody).

Also:

While some christians believe that [God answers prayers], that doesn’t automatically mean that christianity, as a religion, teaches that, or that (assuming God indeed exists) it’s true.

Clearly, the author is an intelligent person. Unfortunately, as with many people trapped by religion, he is not thinking clearly about his faith. If you are a Christian, and if you agree with the author, and if you would like to explore his line of reasoning, here is a place to start. Please read this article…

Proof #1 – Try praying

It lists many verses where the Bible specifically promises to answer prayers from amputees. If you are thinking clearly about your faith, you can see that the question, “Why won’t God heal amputees?” is not based on a false premise. It is based on specific verses from the Bible which, clearly, are wrong.

You have to explain why all of the Bible verses listed on that page are wrong. Why are all of these Bible verses completely incorrect when applied to amputees?

How do you explain it?

For intelligent people, careful consideration of this question yields a chain of logic that shows that God is imaginary. If you simply take the time to think about it using the critical thinking skills that you learned in college, the question “Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?” is sufficient to prove that God is imaginary.

Then, please take a moment to read this page:

Why is the question “Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?” so important?

The evidence in this case is undeniable. All of the Bible’s verses about prayer are wrong when it comes to amputees. But, if you have been practicing religion for any length of time, your brain will invent other rationalizations and excuses. This is the nature of religious faith, and the reason why it is so dangerous. As you invent them, please send in your excuses and let’s talk about them.

Also, continue thinking about the question, “Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?” It is a remarkably interesting question on which to meditate.

    I think your “theory” proves to some degree a bit of knowledge on your part. What you are lacking is True Wisdom. I’ve seen your Youtube 10 minute and 44 second video. Is this all it takes to try to convince people who ARE educated in the Faith? I understand your atheistic, or possible agnostic views lack any FAITH. And without it, one will NEVER understand God. Amputees will get their limbs back in Heaven. Why doesn’t God heal para-palegics? (Although He has, but not all of them.) Why? Because HE is the Almighty and HE decides what prayers should be answered. Logical enough for you? It makes complete sense. Why do I HAVE to breathe air to live? I don’t want to, this is NOT FREE CHOICE!! I could make up all kinds of reasons why God is “unfair” and is “discriminatory”. Pfff. You selfish, ignorant, fool. I don’t even know why I bother. I’ll keep you in my prayers. God bless you.

    Think about this: What is the only book that has lasted since it was inspired by God? The Holy Bible.Yep, the Bible. God knows us, He knows
    the exact number of hairs we have on our head.Therefore, He knows your motives. Another question: How did Satan emerged? He was a mighty angel in Heaven, convinced other angels that he was more powerful than God. God bounced him and his followers out of Heaven and casted them down here to earth. The short of it, this is why you think the way you do today. The human mind is limited, God’s mind is not only limitless, it is so powerful and yes,He can and will, (one day when He returns), heal all who accept Him as Lord and Savior over their lives, including amputees! Ever since the beginning of time, people either ignored God or tried to back Him into a corner. Newsflash: God ain’t havin’ it! Another question; What makes you think you can rid the world of TRUE Christianity? Right now this world is held
    together with the Love of God and one day, when all beleivers go to Heaven(and glorified bodies ARE MADE WHOLE), here on earth the love of many will grow cold. The world won’t be “a better place”, as you have stated, instead it will be a place of torment just before it is thrown into a lake of fire. Smoking and women’s right to vote are only a few of the many small issues in this world. So what about you(who made this website)?
    After read parts of this website, its quite obvious that you’re not happy. Anyone who has not recieved Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior won’t be happy at all. Are you an amputee? You still have an opportunity to ask God to forgive you, open your eyes, and ask the Lord Jesus to come into your heart. That will be the best thing you could ever do in your entire life. I’ll keep you in my prayers. May God ever bless you!

    This is very interesting that more christians read this than non christians. Just thought I would put that out there lol.
    I for one do not have to prove anything. God will state His good and Perfect will no matter what. I will, however, say this: It seems to me that aetheism is more focused on proving God wrong than it is in not believing in God. If you did not believe in God, you would not argue at all. Instead, you would be living your everyday life perfect and happy(If what you say is true) instead of spending mindless hours making a website that Denies God’s exsistence.
    I believe the true reason is that you sannot get sleep at night because you know when you look up at the vast expanse of our universe and see the billions of stars in our own galaxy that there is something bigger and way more powerful.
    As for the Amputees, God openly states in the bible:”Do not test the Lord your God”. He will not be tested by his own believers much less the unbelievers.
    I’m not gonna say God bless you or give you some christian answer but I will tell you this: Christians may not be able to prove God is in exsistence at all, but deep down in your heart you know there’s something more than just us out there. I would like someone to try to prove Him wrong. You have tried and you have failed my friend. I know in my heart that there is a God. Look up Louie Giglio and listen to his talk on indescribable and then try to deny His Great and Powerful Presence.
    Glory and Glory to Him forever, Amen.
