I'm not bitter, actually. But I can tell that you either purposely ignored a very important aspect of the question posed by this website, or you do not understand the context. Let me lay it out for you.
I will start by phrasing the intent in a more complete way:
If the God that Christians believe in has truly healed any human through miracle or otherwise, by way of prayer, or of his own will, then why has this god never healed an amputee?
Although, I have had many other types of supernatural occurences in my life, i have only heard of stories of amputees being healed. so, i cannot speak intelligently about that except to say that the need for suffering in our existence is a highly unpopular topic even among our own.
You see, there is no pretention that God is actually real. The point of the question is to point out the most serious problem with one of the most popular claims of many Christians, that God heals through prayer by miracle. Whether you believe God has done this or not, is irrelevant. The relevant part of the question is that we can clearly see that no amount of prayer, or miracle has ever healed an amputee. So Christians are left having to explain this problem.
The testimonies even the extrabiblical ones are from so many years ago, it isn't likely that those stories are taken seriously by people of the 21st century. I know this seems trite or even shallow, but i think things that are developed inside us because of suffering are more important to God than that we be healed and even that doesn't seem a sufficient enough an answer. it's really, and this is my opinion, not about us as much as we think. There are those watching and when this epic motion picture comes to an end, they will have gotten something out of it, like, obedience to authority. Even you as a moderator know the value of rules and the need to discipline when there's a problem (not mentioning any names here
) and why? So that the community can continue it's existence with some level of harmony. What if getting that particular point across was so important to the God of the Bible/Creation (my opinion its the same being) that he is allowing this huge thing to take place for the aha moments or moment. You know when you see a super well-written movie come together and let's just say it has a good ending and you are just left with a great feeling and a lot of insights and epiphanies, etc. I think that's worth it. If it means eternal life and harmony and understanding in that life. And your idea is that people need to get used to their damaged body. sometimes relying on others requires humility and being needy requires humility and intimacy. How about a conference on every one with a legitimate story of healing to share complete with doctor's documentation, etc. even though there are extrabiblical sources, the writings of josephus and others. you may be surprised by the turnout. If i were in your shoes, that would be the very least i would do.
Yes, they do need to get used to it. And they must learn to live with it for the rest of their lives, or be fitted with prosthetics, and get used to that. But they will never have the benefit of a miracle healing by God. And that is precisely why the god of the Bible is imaginary. He simply does not exist, and never has. It is all made up by ancient humans, and has been dragged forward into modern times to be used as a crutch for people who are afraid to die.
dying isn't the most exciting thing to think about, but let's not confuse that with fear of dying. I personally am just a little bit this side of narcissistic to go on to glory, but i truly would find it a restful experience, so you really can't accuse people of being afraid to die if you haven't interviewed every human being. Too broad of a statement. and who are afraid to live out the one and only life they will ever have. There are many things I could do I suppose, but I really don't do anything I don't want to do now and i don't really not do things i want to. so its not like im missing out on anything. i got to do a lot as a teen, but I truly don't miss it. I miss church. i just didn't want to drag mom there. and i tend to get into trouble. im drawn to it sometimes,b ut its usually just debates like these.
All gods are imaginary. And if a single god could be shown to be real, there would be no atheists.
people are drawn to believe what they want. i believe what i want. there's a dif between going deeper and not believing.
i think i messed this up. it logged me out and i had to copy and paste.
