These people know that such prayers were never answered by any outside source.<quoted text>
Let us pray...
"Dear Jesus, please end all cancer in humans tomorrow.
Do you consider that prayer silly?
For all their talk of Jesus dying for sin, their belief in that nonsense never indicates that their suffering is over and done with and that their debts to the supposed god are paid.
Christians suffer just as do all of us ... and if they think that future events after they die will be any different than the suffering that occurs now ... I suggest they should question WHY they believe that way.
A god that purposefully burns the majority of his own human creation in hell, or even doesn't allow the outcasts in his perfect abode, is just as apt to toss the new arrivals out on their self-perceived holy-noses if they irritate him in the slightest way.
All theology is really very stupid in its self-ingratiating schemes.
