    Did God answer prayer for healing?

    A Christian cancer patient pray for healing, but God did not heal him and he dies after 1-2 years of radiation therapy, what does this mean?

    The pastor told the patient's family that it's God will to heal or not heal, dying is not a tragedy for a saved Christian, his soul is saved, he goes to heaven a better place than the earthly world.

    This is a typical answer, anyone also can say that.

    How do we really know God's will to heal or not to heal?
    Is everything supernatural bull-shit?

    The superanatural doesn't exist. That means God doesn't exist either.

    God exists.
    The Supernatural exists.
    Angels and Demons exist.





    Miracles exist.

    And...

    People are very often verbally and mentally attacked, and otherwise abused here at Sciforums for saying so.

    It's not Gods problem if you suffer. Would you help Jesus? If not, why would He help you?

    No one cares about your God delusions, it's your constant lying that gets you in trouble.

    Why there is haunted house?
    Some people are really obsessed by some kind of spirit and act abnormally.

    IMHO
    If you would have an interactive GOD that does your bidding through prayer;
    Then you have made of your god a servant

    Get over yourself!
    If there is a GOD:
    Then that GOD is not here to serve you!

    I think many folks would add to that list a number of things God should have been intervening in for a very long time. But alas, we puny humans are meant to do it all ourselves as God continues to demonstrate his inactivity in any way shape or form.

    God, that's who.

    And, while I would agree that the absence of God in this regard isn't proof God doesn't exist, it sure casts a whole lot of doubt on his values and how He, as an apparent Father, would act.

    So, the question would be, how many Fathers would not act to save children from torture? Only one?

    Not in scientifically controlled conditions, apparently.

    God hates him?

    Well, that's the problem, isn't it? If you pray for somebody and they get well, then that's what God wanted. If you pray for them and they get worse or die, then that's what God must have wanted. Either way, God wins.

    Convenient, that, wouldn't you say?

    No. There's natural bullshit, for instance.

    God never speaks to us directly, everything about God is assumption.

    These folks seem to think that God is real.
