WWGHA? [#321]

To whom it may concern,

The process of regrowing a severed limb would be much too painful for the human mind. The
amputee would suffer major shock and trauma during this process, and would probably die
from the shock, or possible heart-attack. >> This is why God won't heal amputees.

Does God hate amputees, does he single them out, or is it a cruel test of faith?
Certainly not, he is avoiding a great deal of pain and suffering by not healing them.
When we hear of God curing cancer and many other illnesses, we know he is healing the
pain and suffering, not causing it.

God is glorious!

Life is more precious than an amputated limb.

Sincerely,
Disciple of Christ

Mr. All-Powerful made humans!  He could simply change that if an amputee asked him to restore a limb!

God is a liar!

Life is too precious to sacrifice to a spiteful, dishonest, unbelievable diety.

If we come together and do not fight over religion, class and borders then we hold the key to a peaceful world. There are two possible futures in store; either a March of power and greed or a March of a unified human race.

Surely he could do it painlessly? :S
Why would he force pain on the amputee whilst regrowing his limb?
God's power is limitless, of-course.

He could do it slowly.  Or he could block the pain.  He's God remember.

So you do believe that God does cure some illnesses, just never amputations?  Join the forum so we can talk about it!

So the experience of regaining a limb would push you over the edge, but losing it in the first place wouldn't prove as traumatic?

Salamanders, earthworms, and starfish regenerate missing body parts every day.  If they can handle it, why can't we?
