Sure. Iíd be willing to go ďgreatĒ on that question. No problem. Thereís often a thin line of distinction.<quoted text>
You mean GREAT question. "God heals souls"? He can't even grow a toe back! I can imagine how it must have felt for you to read that Reverend. Two solid quotes from the book of fairy tales. Irrefutable evidence of god's instructions for his majic healing. Then a heartfelt, earnest prayer with words I'm sure you've used yourself and then the scenario and the unrefutable results of 4,000 years of recorded history to back up the scenario....and all you got is to "stop asking such questions, stop tormenting yourself, give your soul a rest."
I expected as much. Usually when a christian responds to that question, they quote a verse or two.
It must have really tore you up, Rev.
WHY DOESN'T GOD HEAL AMPUTEES???????
Now you ask if God heals souls. I thought I had made that perfectly clear that He does.
Then you ask if He could grow a toe back. What are you leading up to, a full organ recital? Of course God could replace a toe. Who do you think invented toes in the first place and created every toe known to mankind? Donít you know that in His infinite wisdom, He knows that healing souls goes right to the root cause, so He chooses not to just replace body parts. He performs miracles, but generally steers clear of performing parlor tricks. Sure, Jesus sometimes laid on hands to help in a pinch, but that was just to demonstrate that He is the Son, not some common Israelite.
Now go in peace and be whole again.
