Why Won’t God Heal Amputees?

Posted: May 30, 2011 by Amy Hall in God is Real

Brett was asked an interesting question:

“Why won’t God heal amputees?”  The question caught me by surprise.

I had just finished my “Why I Am a Christian” talk at Calvary Chapel Chino Valley’s youth conference in April.  After talking with a few students and leaders, a young man approached.  He challenged me with this question, explaining his atheist friend had asked it earlier in the week.  And he had no answer for his friend.

Apparently, it’s a question atheists make a big deal about. There is even an entire website dedicated to it (www.whywontgodhealamputees.com).  The website claims “this is one of the most important questions we can ask about God.”  Sometime, somewhere I had heard the objection but had never given it much attention.  Now it was staring me right in the face.  Immediate attention was required…

    Ya, i’ve always wondered this to.

    On YouTube there are several videos about this topic. Most miracles seem to be about relationships and finances…

      Now your wondering will come to an end.
      Have you seen a lizard with no tail, I mean his tail somehow or rather is chopped off?
      Catch the lizard and confine it for a few weeks given food and water. Now can you see his tail grow again. God has been very generous with the lizard. Why does this phenomena does’nt happen to a man. BECAUSE MOST OF THEM IS VERY UNGRATEFUL. God have given them chance before but they misuse what have been given. Now no more limbs for them.
