completely defeats the concept and purpose of having free will.
That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read this year!'
I have to ask, are you serious?
many people are dodging the question and answering in the most bizarre ways. Do believers have any sense at all?
Some say, he's not a magician of fairy god mother who hangs around granting wishes...fine, I don't think he does that either, if I thought he were
real at least.
But, I will say this though...
There are many people who have been "miraculously" healed by the "power of the lord". Some of these cases range from people who are crippled, have
cancer, dying from some unknown disease, winning the lottery, etc.
FACT: Many people pray for things and get them, many others pray for things and get nothing. My coworker once told me, pray and God will answer you. I
don't know what he means by answer...I mean, "no" can be an answer too right? But...so many people believe that God will bring you through and that
he has the power to correct all things.
But, there is something very wrong with this. It's the fact that, on what basis does god grant wishes? Because, clearly it's not something any of us
can understand. I mean, the man(god) lets millions and probably billions of praying people starve, die, suffer etc, while the other half get
everything they ask for, and says God is responsible for it. Is it that the half that don't get squat are doing something wrong? Is it that god plays
favourites? Or is it that he "works in mysterious ways"?
People need to become aware of something...karma, or what people think of as karma does not exist. Why am I bringing this up? Because, humanity is
everywhere, the world turns, things happen and there are too many of us for good things not to happen, or bad things to happen to. # happens,
regardless of who you pray to, why you're praying, how good you are, how bad you are, what you did in the past etc. The point is simple...what goes
around comes around, only because the world is spinning. Do you honestly think if there were 5 people in the world and 1 person did something bad,
that that exact same thing would happen to him. Maybe, it might. But, with 5 people existing...chances are slim that it would happen. Now, if there
were 6 billion people on the planet and someone did something bad, how possible is it for that thing called karma to come back and kick him in the
butt? It's a lot more likely, I'll tell you that.
All of this comes down to numbers. And I've shown you why and will show you why again!
If 1 million people get cancer and all of those people pray to be miraculously cured...I'm sure a few of them will have success stories about how one
day they woke up and didn't have cancer and they will attribute this to God. That's a fact, because it has happened already and is still happening
to day. Now, why didn't God miraculously heal the other people, some of whom may be more spiritual, have more vital roles in society and may be
kinder, more caring, more deserving people? Why didn't he cure them? But, it's not important that he didn't cure them, what's important is that he
cured some of them.
Now...how come, not one single amputee in recorded human history has never been cured miraculously like this? And that's what the OP is asking. Not
why God hasn't helped them...but...why, not one person, not one case, out of the millions of people who were praying to cured, or helped was
miraculously healed, as other diseases have claimed to be in the past? Why not one?
No one is asking God to cure ALL the amputees and fix everybody up, but think about it...it's almost as if...God CAN'T cure amputees! The man can
walk on water, heal the blind and arise from the dead, but making a right-leg appear is impossible to do? God hasn't cured 1 amputee in all of human
history. Why? All other diseases(except for AIDs and a few others) are child's play in his eyes, but he refuses to interfere with amputees. He really
does work in mysterious ways, doesn't he.
He's such a mysterious man. He must get all the chicks!
