Quote# 66476

The people who [Jesus] healed were the ones who earnestly cried out to him and had faith in their hearts that he could heal them.

The same goes today, those that cry out to Jesus with a faithful heart knowing he can heal them are healed of whatever their sickness is (if you have strong faith this can include homosexuality, cancer, sin, and any trouble you are in) he will heal you according to your faith in him!

He's not going to just heal all the wicked and save them out of every trouble if they do not even believe in him and doubt his powers and continue to do and think evil continually! Only those that seek him!

i read about the afterlife

Oh shove it. It says that "even if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can move mountains." I know I had a hell of a lot more faith than that -- but God never healed me.

Since when was homosexuality an illness?

Apparently there are no amputees who are truly seeking him then. And no one on any of the hijacked planes on 9-11 was a True Christian.

Doctor Whom

All of those people who unsuccessfully prayed for healing were ... wait for it ... not true Christians.

Then how is he supposed to convert us? His followers sure ain't doin' anything for me.

So why isn't the world full of healthy Xians then? Perhaps because your are talking crap. If the above were true, any study (even poorly constructed Xian study) would be able to prove your assertion. Back in the real world, studies show no difference in the health of the religious versus the wider population.

I suspect most God-fearing people with fatal diseases have prayed and asked God for help. There's no indication that it works. If no mortal man has enough faith to satisfy God, how is that different from no God at all?

10/24/2009 8:28:45 AM


OH! You're all sinners, and that's why He doesn't heal you?
Just as an aside, could it be that some other religion is the non-sinner one?

Caustic Gnostic

One little problem here:

A fella who's been dead about 2000 years ain't gonna heal shit.

"He's not going to just heal all the wicked and save them out of every trouble if they do not even believe in him and doubt his powers and continue to do and think evil continually! Only those that seek him!"

Translation: "God is all-powerful and loves all of his children, but is not powerful enough to do anything at all for them unless they beg him to, in just the right way."

But doctors will try their best to save you, regardless of race, gender, and guilt. What does that say about your Jesus?

10/24/2009 8:56:52 AM


So, Jesus is a jerk, is what you're saying?

10/24/2009 8:59:51 AM


And spontanious healing of terminal deseases happen only when there's been a serious misdiagnosas. In other words, never

Prayers also been tested against nothing and found to actual loose ground or be equal in outcome.

It seems like the answer you get is either "yes", "no" or "wait".

For some reasons, this is exactly what you'd expect with no god. How strange! ;-)

10/24/2009 9:37:38 AM


Let's test that.

10/24/2009 9:42:38 AM


When we point out that if your story was true there would be no Christians stricken with any diseases (or markedly fewer than other religions) you say that god must have a reason for not healing them, or else they weren't real Christians.
In short, you make excuses.

10/24/2009 9:44:45 AM


So Jesus only heals people if they believe in him?

You know if Jesus really loved everyone he would heal people regardless of how they believed, and in fact they would be more likely to believe in him truthfully after he miraculously healed them. But no, he's a fucking asshole.

10/24/2009 9:59:32 AM


"No true Scotsman" again? Dude, give it a break!

So, there has never been an amputee who has earnestly sought Jesus?

10/24/2009 10:58:31 AM


At the height of my Christian devotion, I was diagnosed with epilepsy, so I'm going to call bullshit.

Homosexuality is not a sickness.

10/24/2009 11:30:14 AM


Does it include reversing amputations?

So your jebus is a judgemental cocksucker. Even though the fucker's cloud-fairy father is supposed to have the final word.

Got it.

This reminds me when I went to the hospital to see my soon to be brother-in-law who lives in the city where my fiancee and I go to school. When I was sitting in the on call room, which was next to the radiology area, I heard a woman's voice in a sing-song fashion say "Hallelujah my arm is healed, praise be to God for healing it!" and saw this woman leave the floor for somewhere else. Likely to get the cast cut off.

I asked the radiologist (one of my brother in law friends) what that was about and he jokingly told me "We doctors do all the work, and they thank god. But if we fail, and they die or we can't do anything, they decide it's our fault. Why don't they sue God instead?"
