Why won't God heal amputees?
#1
Why won't God heal amputees?
It happened before, supposedly:

Wikipedia -- Healing the ear of a servant

Is it wrong for an amputee to pray for such a healing?  By the way, I will convert to Christianity (or, whatever religion the healed person claims to believe in) today if such a bonafide miracle can be documented this day.
And without delay Peter went quickly out of the synagogue (assembly) and went unto the house of Marcellus, where Simon lodged: and much people followed him...And Peter turned unto the people that followed him and said: Ye shall now see a great and marvellous wonder. And Peter seeing a great dog bound with a strong chain, went to him and loosed him, and when he was loosed the dog received a man's voice and said unto Peter: What dost thou bid me to do, thou servant of the unspeakable and living God? Peter said unto him: Go in and say unto Simon in the midst of his company: Peter saith unto thee, Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And immediately the dog ran and entered in, and rushed into the midst of them that were with Simon, and lifted up his forefeet and in a loud voice said: Thou Simon, Peter the servant of Christ who standeth at the door saith unto thee: Come forth abroad, for thy sake am I come to Rome, thou most wicked one and deceiver of simple souls. And when Simon heard it, and beheld the incredible sight, he lost the words wherewith he was deceiving them that stood by, and all of them were amazed. (The Acts of Peter, 9)

A newt doesn't have to. Cut off it's tail and it will grow back.

Proof positive that god is an amphibian.

what if he does through grafting cloned biological material or through the use of robotics? or are you a dark age follower of God and God must 'magic' you arm back on?

That doesn't mean question just the questionable, it also means that we should question the foundational. If you have a biblically based question you'd rather not openly discuss i am happy to receive any PM's Semi-discreetly, or Email [email protected]

God works in mysterious ways, your suffering to prolong.

Not really a miracle, though, is it? Robotics, cloning and grafting can all come about irrespective of God.

Similar to what Jehanne said, I’ll convert the day I wake up with my left eye regrown and fully functional.

That would be a stronger argument for keeping out of a religion than joining it.  Heals one rando ear, that's a thing it can do....but it's deaf to all the other folks who've been chopped up?

We'd be talking about a god who hears the miserable cries of the injured, could help, and says no.

it would be to those writing the bible would it not? shouldn't that be the standard of a miracle? other what separates God from science? God is the God of the natural observable world. science is the study of that world. science discovers aspects of God and makes it common knowledge. So what if 'science' recreate something god had only previously been able to do? does it make science any more powerful or God any less? If God creates and puts into place the systems of reproductive cloning that science has recorded and observed, and now science can repeat God's natural processes how does that devalue the creator when all you can do is copy what has been created? it is not like science is calling out into the void and demanding light life and the like. we are just learning how this world can be work or understood.

Who said anything about ‘devaluing the creator’? It’s perfectly possible that god started a long, convoluted chain of events that will one day give me a bionic eye. It’s equally possible that bionic eyes will be invented in a universe without god.

God gives you a perfect body and you go and lose a bit of it.
All the spare parts are in heaven.
You have to wait until then to get it back.
If we had all the spare parts on earth, men would be walking around with three dicks.
