Why is it eye-opening? Among believers that is how it's always been.

I'm going to comment first without reading the article because it's bed time for me.

My question is, why would God revive some but not others? is your answer that "God only knows the answer to that question" ?

No..my answer is I don't know. Let me ask you this..Why can medical science save some but not others? Of the SAME disease?

Could it be because it is time for them to die? You can not live forever can you? I know, I sure don't want too. I have arthritis and have had it since I was 18. I don't want to live my life in pain forever. I'm ready to die today if God is ready to take me. No worries!

I am a former christian, now I look back to when i used to believe in God and when the church used to tell us about praying, it is very misleading.
The church had shown us that if you pray and you get what you asked for then its a miracle, but if you dont get it then its Gods will.

Isn't that convenient to say? They are giving and illogical reasoning to things that are random

This was something i used to believe also, but after leaving Christianity i learned that i used to pray all the time and when things went my way i used to think it was God and when things didnt in my way i used to also think it was Gods will.

But after i stopped believing in God and stopped praying i figured out that this things that i used to think that happened because i prayed where just random, nothing at all changed after i stopped praying, everything continued its random path.

When we come to the end of ourselves, our medicines and our solutions, what else is a human to do? Of course we turn to God, even if we don't believe in Him, "just in case" he's there and can help. I can't tell you how many "atheists" and others I have prayed with as a hospital chaplain, which I consider an honor and priviledge, and which I do with great respect and consideration.

I've stood at the bedside of desperate people. Desperation cuts through all the combined arguments on this forum, all the discussion, all the posturing and pride....it cuts through right to the marrow of the bone - right to the need for help outside of ourselves - right to God.

And He's there.

When the answer is no, my explanation is that I have no explanation. I do not understand, including the death of my own son. But in these cases, when I don't understand his "hands", I have learned to trust his heart. To assume I know how He answers every request, to assume I can figure out the workings of God and the universe is very brazen and arrogant - rather like the created trying to mold the Creator into my thinking, my image. I do not know all of the ways and plans of God and how He runs the universe...I can only know who He is (as He helps me) and learn as I walk with Him.

That was a brilliant explanation of the falsehood of prayer. Funny how God can't lose in this situation huh? "He didn't answer my prayers, he must not have thought they were a good idea..."

The doctors can save many of them in order to avoid overcrowding in the graveyards. Or perhaps, every doctor has his own specialty/capability to do his work as a doctor. Some doctors may bluff the patients while some may be so well versed in their profession that they can do the job splendidly.

Yes, I agreed with you. You are coming to the world in a random manner. If your parents had not married each other, you won't be a xtian and leaving it or as you are now.

Hi just found this and would like to give you a little bit of words to help..

when i came to God (very longgg story) i had asthma, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar, allergies, broncitis episodes, and i was healed without even realizing it because i was not praying for my healing but my Pastors.
He had somethings wrond in his body and the ladies of the church chose to pray and fast for him...i couldnt do a juice fast because i had to eat but i chose one thing and stayed on it and God honored it...Pastor was healed...but by a certain day of the prayer and fasting God impressed me that i was healed and that i could continue my fast on juice...and since then no problems...all for the GLORY OF GOD..........

try it...prayer and fasting....it WILL work its been TP...tried and proven..........thanx

One of the biggest multi-faith prayer experiments ever devised has concluded that prayer made no significant difference to the outcomes of the cardiac patients involved.

no problem my God has placed eyes on a man that had been blind since the day he was born...

when he was baptized his sockets began to grow eyes and now he has 20/20 vision....

i know someone else that was told they needed to get a surgery for the 4 chambers on her heart...and she went for prayer without telling anyone what was going on...she just had faith in God...

the next time she went to the doctor he told her she didnt need to have surgery because she had a new heart...

TO GOD BE THE GLORY..........

Hello flower, the man who was blind and then grew eye sockets would no doubt have been of great interest to the medical world. You wouldn't have some, er, evidence or links to this wonderful event would you?

No flower, evidence, I'm talking about evidence. Where can we see these pictures? Have these events been investigated and verified by independent third parties? Hearsay is not evidence flower.
