Quote# 53296

(In response to the question, "Christians: a friend of mine is a Christian and claims God answered her friends prayers and healed her cancer. So could you pray for my other friend who is an amputee so that he can get his leg back?")

He heals the sick
not having a leg doesn't make him sick, he just doesn't have a leg.
so stop trying to prove a false point.

John 11:43 And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

11:44 And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.

Lazarus wasn't sick either. It seems to me if Jehovah can raise the dead, He could handle a simple missing leg.

"He heals the sick
not having a leg doesn't make him sick, he just doesn't have a leg."

Lame cop-out for an obviously valid point.

Off topic I know but the story of the fruitless fig tree has to be the most stupid tale in the Bible. I can read no literal or allegorical sense into it at all.

Fine, not having a leg doesn't qualify this gentleman as "sick."

Now, name one instance where your God actually did - and provably, as in with physical evidence a qualified medical professional can study - heal any person of any ailment so small as a hangnail.

You'll pardon me if I don't hold my breath on this one.

Beeblebrox - maybe that's why they claim God heals the sick, a lot more often than they claim he raises the dead. It's easy enough to find some fortunate healing and attribute it to God, at least, easier than finding a case of a corpse getting up and walking.

Why does God not cure genetic disorders...

11/30/2008 5:21:28 PM


Notice that the cancer cured was that of a friend of a friend, the usual distance for an unvarifiable testimony.

Would he cure a quadraplegic, because that can cause early death?

Having cancer doesn't make you sick, you just have an out of control growth. so stop trying to prove a false point.

What if it had to be amputated because of Gangrene? Isn't that sickness?

11/30/2008 11:21:56 PM


Actually, healing an amputee WOULD prove that your god a) just might exist after all; b) is truly omnipotent; and c) even gives a shit about humanity.

He heals the sick

Except when he doesn't, apparently.

not having a leg doesn't make him sick, he just doesn't have a leg.

Let's hack off your leg, if it's 'just not having a leg', fucker.

[/i]so stop trying to prove a false point. [/i]

Not a false point. God doesn't heal amputees, because he can't. He also doesn't heal the sick, our immune system, modern medical science and docters do.

Mister Naturalist

So wait a second- God only heals the sick? Why? Why not heal people who were a result of a birth defect? Why not heal people whose missing limb was a result of a car crash that they weren't responsible for? Why have such a difference in who you will heal and who you won't- besides the fact that "answered prayers" for sickness could easily be a result of science or coincidence, which is definately not true with an amputated leg?

I consider the absence of a leg metaphorically to be a sickness. All sicknesses will be healed in one world-wide process. It began 2009-01-15, might take a year or two.

Try walking with one leg and you´ll tell me if they´re sick or not.
