I have a beautiful beach where I live. My question is, since I can’t count each grain of sand, does that beach stop existing? I realize that some would say that is a pedestrian argument and of course it exists because we can see it.
I can not see someone’s headache so does that mean that it does not exist? Of course it does because they are in pain.
I can’t “see” God healing others so does that mean He isn’t?
Here is how I see it:
We seek simplicity to describe everything. We seek answers we do not comprehend to explain fact. We study doctrine to explain all. We only realize misunderstanding through damage. We have whole faith in answers written somewhere. We build on the mistakes of our predecessors and feel the answer is now found, much like our predecessors claimed.
This view I am describing is the worldly view of some non believers and how surprising is it that it sounds identical to the ideas some people have of faith. So therefore, are we not all chasing unicorns?
The idea of praying for those who are ill is ridiculous in the eyes of some. To reach into your heart and to trust god is akin to holding your breath while drowning. Good start but pointless in the end.
They say, “God can’t heal.” But I say, “Really?”
Is awareness not healing?
Is His work on my tendency to envy not healing?
Is my realization that I am not the superiority not healing?
Is empathy and love for those who suffer not healing?
Is the fact that he took me, as I was, reached in and opened my eyes to my gifts and released in me an idea that my needs are not paramount, no healing there? He heals.
Just a thought. Your thoughts?
