In the mid to late 80's, I've personally have seen a young man's left leg in a full leg cast from being shattered in 10 places from being a victum of a hit and run on a Wednesday night and after being prayed for, came back on Sunday morning with it off with xrays to prove it..
If this incident was documented and proved true beyond reasonable doubt, then it is simply a case of a mans' injury healing quicker than normal.
The allegation that prayer was involved is simply coincidental, unless one could could prove that the prayer had a direct effect on whatever process took place,
Even if one could in fact prove that the leg healed quicker and that another humans words or thoughts were somehow linked. You would then need to prove any involvement of an invisible being in the sky but not only this but it was the same invisible being in the sky that you are referring to.
Needless to say, there is no proof that your invisible man in the sky actually exists, so any claims to what it does are equally unprovable.
It would appear that since there is no proof of the existence of a guy in the sky and no proof of amputated limbs being regenerated then both are simply imaginary.l

so god has the power to contribute to all thous factors yet all he/she/it does is nothing
talk about bad parenting
"Don't belive me, then believe in the WORKS that I do, and you determine if the miricles are from the Father or not.." .. instant healing is and ALWAYS has been considered a miracle
Because of their inability and refusal to rightly divide the word of truth (II Tim. 2:15), the Charismatics operate under the false assumption that these signs are still in effect today and that it is THEIR duty to fulfill them. This is why we have charlatans like Oral Roberts and Jim Baker living in mansions and begging people for money.

Maybe he doesn't do miracles because you touch yourself at night. On a serious note, god doesn't exist, nor is there any intrinsic value in anything. And if you are telling us that by saying god doesn't exist that means we are polluting your thread then you are just closed minded!!!!!!!!!!!!!! RAWR I R MAD!!!!!!!!!!! Nah...basically dude/dudette you asked for thoughts. We give thoughts. If you don't like our thoughts then I suggest leaving?
What's next on the agenda? Oh, yes! The Crusades--or is it the Spanish Inquisition? I can never remember which item we are supposed to bring up after talking about how God didn't cure someone's genital warts.
God never heals anyone. If you think he did you are a lunatic or wishful thinking.
There is no proof that God exists, ergo all religious and spiritual people are wrong.
Christians are evil, everyone else is not.
Christians cause all the problems on earth, greed and power are just "ruse" motives to distract people from the real evil of Christianity.
Did I about cover it? Or do we want to argue this point out further until the next thread on the topic arises and casts this one to the back burner?
Guys! I found the answer on another thread. God doesn't answer prayers because you touch yourself too much. I hadn't realized the answer was so simple or intellectual.
