as the others have said, it’s just more Chritian nonsense when they get their magic decoder rings out and start declaring that they and they alone know what their god “really” meant.
Was there a global flood? The answer is no not at all in reality, but did the bible authors just mean it was a hyperbole? Certainly seems that the character JC though it was real. Was there a cruxifiction or was that just hyperbole too? I can support that as well as you can support your excuses that other parts are.
You might be new but that doesn’t excuse your ignorance. Read the site and see the same old tired excuses that all Christians use. We see every one of them clami that their views are the only “objective and truthful” ones and not so strangely they can’t provide evidence of that at all. There is nothing that shows you are any more right than those Christians who are literalists. I haven’t seen one of you do any of the things your savior promised.
As for the question at hand about WWGHA: Personally, the question hinges on the worldview held by each one of us. For the atheist, this life is it. After we die, we're worm food. Therefore, the healing of the amputee in a supernatural fashion is required by the atheist in THIS life, before the amputee "dies."
Funny how JC did all of his purported healing in “THIS” life too. Why the sudden change, Pen? Why does God suddenly stop healing people just when humans start to question things and figure out that disease is not some “God’s Wrath”nonsense?
In a Christian worldview, humans will live forever and this life is only the beginning. Therefore, the healing of the amputee (and any other ailment prevalent in our fallen world) will happen after one goes to heaven. There is nothing in a Christian worldview that says supernatural healing must occur in this world in order for it to happen at all. In fact, the majority of "healing" will take place after one dies and is brought into eternity with God.
No, this is only in some versions of Christianity, those you make up, seeing how JC didn’t qualify his healings like you are trying to do. It’s always rather amusing, if in a pathetic way, that Christians have to wholesale ignore their bible and what their god supposed “inspired”.
[qutoe]If I sustain a broken leg and visit the doctor, I am not going to be healed immediately no matter how great the doctor is. The process of healing here takes time and I am subject to that. [/quote] Ah, so you are claiming your fellow Christians are liars? How interesting. Care to show us how you know?
The process of physical (in most cases) and spiritual healing also takes time and we are also subject to that whether or not we want it to happen at our discretion and on our timetable. Just some food for thought. Please respond. Thanks.
No food for thought here, only excuses. Your bible says that prayers will be answered positively and quickly. It is only Christians who try to use the old “yes, wait, no” excuse since they know that prayers are never answered and they must try to excuse the impotence, or non-existence of their god.
I’m curious. Since we have hand transplants, etc, would you give up your hand to someone who needed it to work? I would think surely you would since you, and your version of God, don’t think healing or a whole body is worth anything in “this” life.
