A starving african child prays for food. God ignores him.
An American prayed to pass a test. He passed so obviously God granted his wish.
Does africa just have crappy prayer reception or something? Also if prayer works why is Abortion legal? Why hasn't god killed all the queers? Why haven't Israel's enemies renounced violence and mohammed and converted?
Because prayer doesn't work!
"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?" --- Epicurus (341-270 BC)
Refreshing voice of reason, GnatFree. Don't you just love how believers always talk about how their god is all loving and can do anything, and then make excuses for him when he isn't and won't or can't.
If all you have done is pray about those things, then I have done a lot more than you have in the past year.
I donate money every month to certain organizations like my local food bank, the catholic run soup kitchen, Planned parenthood, I also donate food tot he food bank when i can. So Lushiro, looks like I'm doing what i can to end hunger. How about you?
Sorry to say this but the Catholics beat you to it about 500 years ago. And if your "all-powerful" god can't end murder what chance do we have?
You can wait until you die for things that will never happen in the hopes of some mystery force saving you or you can go out and do it yourself.
You did the exact same thing replying to my answer to you. Though of course i understand if you dont like hearing other opinions that dont agree wiht your own, it must be very hard for you in trying to stay deluded that there is a man up in the sky who cares about you.
No. Things come regardless if you pray for them or not.
i do and patience for God is bout all i have it for!
I believe in the law of attraction. As heirs to His throne we do not have to "ask" for anything. Our relationship to the universe is not that of a beggar who in response to an appeal may or may not receive a beggars pittance. Our relationship to creation is one of a child to a loving parent who reserves the right to demand and receive whatever his heart desires.
But yes, it takes patience and focus and we must be willing to become the change we want to see take place in the world.
Be it spiritual or not. I don't rely solely on the power of prayer, I rely on my own tenacity in making that prayer as much as a reality as possible.
I believe in the power of prayer , I feel God answers our prayers sometimes not in the way we expect. You just have to have faith
So do trains, but they actually exist.
Lushiro so does ketchup. I will stop with only that.
