Why is there always a catch?
5-6 years ago I was a very conservative believer who was absolutely sure that God would instantly send a healing if I asked Him. I was sure of it. My faith was total and solid. But nothing came. No amount of worship and begging ... no amount of faith made it happen.
And then I had to endure 'good christians' telling me I was a 'bad christian' because, if I had enough faith in God, I would have been cured. So the fact that I was still sick was my own fault.
That was seriously cruel and evil to say to someone. It was destructive. And it wasn't true.
Please remember that there are many people parading around acting as if they are Christian but the truth being they are as far from being a Christian as Hitler. Even though we know Hitler stated he was Christian his acts clearly showed he was not.
Religious views of Adolf Hitler

historians such as Ian Kershaw, Joachim Fest and Alan Bullock agree that Hitler was anti-Christian - a view evidenced by sources such as the Goebbels Diaries, the memoirs of Speer, and the transcripts edited by Martin Bormann contained within Hitler's Table Talk. Goebbels wrote in 1941 that Hitler "hates Christianity, because it has crippled all that is noble in humanity." Many historians have come to the conclusion that Hitler's long-term aim was the eradication of Christianity in Germany, while others maintain that there is insufficient evidence for such a plan

He made various public comments against "bolshevistic" atheist movements, and in favor of so-called "positive Christianity" (a movement which sought to nazify Christianity by purging it of its Jewish elements, the Old Testament and key doctrines like the Apostles' Creed).
. . .
The Deutsche Christens differed from traditional Christians by rejecting the Hebrew origins of Christianity, preaching of an Aryan Jesus and saying that Saint Paul, as a Jew, had falsified Jesus' message
He is known for his rejection of and hatred for Christianity, having played an important role in the development of German Nationalist Positive Christianity.
. . .
Significantly, in his work explicating the Nazi intellectual belief system, The Myth of the Twentieth Century, Rosenberg cryptically alludes to and lauds the anti-Judaic arch-heretic Marcion and the Manichaean-inspired, "Aryo-Iranian" Cathari, as being the more authentic interpreters of Christianity versus historically dominant Judaeo-Christianity;
