It was interesting to see how you react to those who believe in the God of the Bible.
This is a bit non-descriptive. How does the author of the page react to believers? Do elaborate, please.
Is that question, "Why doesn't God heal amputees?" really the most important question?
It's as good a question as any, actually. Jesus allegedly said his believers will perform even greater miracles than he did. The guy supposedly brought a man from the dead and cured all sorts of things. His followers can't perform anything even remotely similar.
Additionally, Christians claim that god does all sorts of things, even today, that far exceed growing a limb, but he doesn't seem to be able or willing to heal a single amputee. He apparently only performs miracles that are either impossible to prove or impossible to attribute to him. If he made a new limb for a devout amputee it would be impossible to disprove. Simple.
Did you know that the worst ill in this world is SIN? And that is the crux of man's problems
If you're right, the worst ill in this world is the fact that your perfect god made us less than perfect. A perfect being making stuff that degenerates in such a short time is a piss-poor excuse for an architect, wouldn't you say?
Also, did you know that there are amputees or paraplegics who have come through
trusting in God even though they remain as they are.
What's that got to do with everything? There are non-believing amputees who have come to terms with their disability. So what? They all live as amputees and god is just as willing to ignore atheists as he is theists.
Because He is sovereign, did you know that God can also answer "No" or "Wait"? Those
are also answers...like them or not.
So 'no' or 'wait' are the only answers he can give millions of amputees all over the world? Why not a single 'yes'? Not one.
Are you aware of the Bible verse James 4:3 "When you ask, you do not receive, because
you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures."
amputees who ask for their limbs back are asking for the wrong motives? How about an amputee mother who would like to take care of her child? An amputee soldier who would like to keep on serving his country? Are all
people who ask for their health simply selfish? Is a mother with an amputee child also selfish if she prays to god, asking for her child's limbs back?
This actually pisses me off, to be honest. This is an all-encompassing cop-out. God will answer all your prayers, unless he feels you're being selfish. So in all the instances (so for all amputees on the planet) god simply decides it's selfish to want your own or your loved one's limbs back and leaves it at that. Kudos to god.
Did you know that what is happening in this woebegone world has been predicted by God ages
ago...earthquakes in all sorts of places...places which have never experienced earthquakes...
wars and rumors of wars...growth of homosexuality, haters of God...etc., etc., because the end
of this world is near...like it or not God is going to judge the world and we will see who laughs last.
There are no
places that have never
experienced earthquakes (just places where people don't remember ever having an earthquake, but that kind of doesn't count). There are literally dozens, if not hundreds of earthquakes every single day, all over the world. That's been happening for eons, the process started long before life even started on Earth. That's really not hard to predict. I predict that there will be an earthquake on Earth in the next five minutes. And I'll be right. How divine am I?
The same goes for wars. They have been happening for a lot shorter period of time, since you do need life in order to have war, but they have been happening all over, all the time. And not just among humans. There were tribal wars long before some goat herders invented Jahweh. That's not a prediction, that's just stating the obvious.
If earthquakes and wars were any predictors to the end of the world, that should have happened a few thousand times over already.
Wars are actually a fairly rare occurrence nowadays. Just, say, a thousand years ago there was a war in just about every European country you can name, even more than one at any given time. Now there are ... well, none.
Satan (believe it or not, he is real and alive and so are his emissaries) is now working as hard
as possible to keep, get people on his side because he knows his end is nearing.
As I've already pointed out, those signs you claim herald the end of the world, aren't really what they seem.
But, and I find that quite important - why does Satan, who is supposedly extremely strong, need something as puny and fragile as humans to fight his battles? And while we're at it - why does god? The latter is supposedly omnipotent. That means he can do anything
, and one would think that would also include kicking Satain in the groin. But no, neither of them seems to be capable of doing anything of the kind. And if god seems to be losing this battle, he even sucks as a lobbyist.
That is why
there are so many who doubt the God Almighty, profane His Name and His Son, Jesus Christ,
Is that really the reason? Have you ever considered a possibility that people have simply figured out that god does absolutely nothing for them and that he has broken every single promise he has ever made? If someone lied so blatantly to me, I'd start doubting them as well.
God can stop all this...and He will, but in His Time.
So he could end all the pain and suffering of his children
, he just doesn't feel like it yet? Some parent.
Who's to tell Him when and
what to do?
People who pray to him and beg
him to help them aren't 'telling him what to do'. They're asking, very politely, very humbly, for his help. And your god refuses to do anything for them.
He is Almighty and at the same time All Love, believe it or not. If you can just
believe that He loves YOU, in spite of who or what you are, you will see what countless
millions have come to see: that He is indeed LOVE...true LOVE
What love? He made us imperfect and flawed, punished us for his own crappy design, lets us suffer for something we can't be blamed for, and, on top of it all, demands we worship him or suffer even more for eternity. I've heard a lot of expressions for such behaviour. Bullying. Mobbing. Sadism. Never love. Especially not true
May God have mercy on you, open your heart to Him and His love through the Person of the
Lord Jesus Christ.
I'm grateful that you wish that for all of us, but I'd also be grateful if you didn't assume that none of us here (the same goes for a growing number of atheists all over the world) have never tried that to no avail.
With much prayers for God's mercy to reach you, too,
I won't speak for anyone else, but you really don't have to pray for me. It's a waste of time, as far as I'm concerned. If you feel the need to pray, do so for yourself and those close to you. I'm in no immediate need of your intercessions. Thank you.
