Chance


Here's a gem I found on a Christian website:

"Cancer is not wasted when it is healed by God. He gets the glory and that is why cancer exists."

I'm surprised no one has commented on this yet. Can anyone really think that god inflicts people with cancer so that he can glorify himself by curing it every once in a while? That's sadistic.

Well, think about it. This is the same god that knowingly created humans that would 'sin', condemned these humans for doing what he knew they would do, and then require a blood sacrifice of himself so that he could forgive his creation for doing what he created them to do...

So I don't see it as a stretch for someone who believes in this god to believe such sadistic things.

Did you think I wouldn't understand that or something?

"If you truly understand, then you are without excuse..."

If he can translate Hebrew then he deserves to go to hell?

If you truly believe, why are you anonymous?

I'm no more anonymous than you are, "Mr. X"...

Am I trying to condemn you to hell?

Brothers and Sisters in Christ

The goal of these men are obvious--Let us not waste time with foolish arguments and long defenses. This has been going on for nearly 2000 years. Let us continue to build each other up in our most holy faith, keeping our eyes upward and our minds on things above. Those who are drawn to Christ will find him, for He finds all of His lost sheep.

But these men are not open to dialogue, only ridicule and persecution. Indeed, their knowledge puffs them up, and they will only continue to try and put us to shame with their tests, their questions and their fine sounding arguments. Let us be like sheep and remain silent and dumb.

Brothers and sisters, the Son of Man is coming--let no man tell you otherwise--and when He is revealed from the heavens with power and glory, our hope and vindication will be made manifest. Keep your eyes on the shepherd of your souls.

Grace and peace...

I'm not persecuting anyone. Are you a Mormon?

I can never understand how people can think that god cures some people's cancers. What makes those people so special that he chose to cure them and not the millions of other people suffering from cancer?

It makes (some) christians think they are so much better than everyone else because one of their own was "cured" by god. And of course it makes them feel as if it's proof of god. To them it's not at all possible that there was a misdiagnosis, or that the treatment said person was undergoing had anything at all to do with it.

What's worse, is that there is a website dedicated to people who rely on obnoxious faith healing... http://www.jesushealstoday.com/index.html

Oddly enough, I don't think, Jesushealstoday.com ever heard of whywontgodhealamputees.com.

Your forgetting the "silent" part...
