If Jesus wants to impress me, he can heal everyone.

So, why doesn't he?

What kind of sick perverted being runs a healing lottery?

A truly benevolent being doesn't grant some people's prayer requests some of the time, while totally ignoring others.
Hear that, Jeff? Or have you fled from the embarrassment?

If dude wanted to make a billion bucks, he should just became a preacher, heck, I would attend even knowing what he was lol.
Benny Hinn.

Watch this, it's great!

Jeff thinks that...

*If it cannot be presently explained, then...
*GodDidIt

Of course, that 'logic' applies to earthquakes before plate tectonics were understood. It applies to diseases before the germ theory of transmission was developed. It applies to tides before gravity and its effects were described. It applies, literally, to everything that once was an unknown.

The last time Jeff lost his car keys, before he found them the 'logical' explanation - per Jeff's claim - was the God was responsible. Until Jeff found them under a pair of funky underwear on the floor.

It's a perfect rational idea.

If you're five years old...

PS - Anyone else notice that Jeff is generally indistinguishable from parodies of fundamentalist nutjobbery?

Yeah, just that alone would convince me Jesus is real, not imaginary. But Jeff is always there with a convincing excuse:

"Well, Jesus can't heal ALL Christians because then people wouldn't use their free will to accept him."

Is that close, Jeff?

"Christopher" is a lovely young man who loves everyone. He loves God and Jesus and spreads cheer everywhere he goes.

"Dick" is a typical angry atheist. He's always frowning. He hates the idea of God and he hates everyone he meets.

They are clones who are both in the same physical condition and both develop the same disease. A week later Christopher is healed of the disease through his faith. Unfortunately Dick has turned to solid stone. He's dead.

Question: Why did Christopher survive and Dick didn't?

Maybe my example is a little exaggerated, BUT... I really think this kind of thing is always happening. Or maybe it should.

You need more help than a message board can offer. I hope you find it.
