This man prayed to Jesus after he lost his arm and Jesus gave him a new cybernetic limb capable of mimicking most of the actions his old arm could do, Thats something your "Science" CANT DO! #LuvJesus!xoxo

Well at least he no longer has a burst appendix. That counts for something, right?

As a christian, I believe that sometimes things happen in mysterious ways. Sometimes however, they are so simple it is hard to miss. This reminds me of an old story I used to hear growing up.

A man was drowning in a sea one day. However he was strong and stayed afloat. Eventually a man comes close in a row boat and offers him a hand. The drowning man refuses saying, "God will save me". So the rowboat went on. Now some time has passed and he is becoming tired. Once again, another row boat comes along to offer aid to which he replies, "No thank you, God will save me". The row boat moved on. Now by this time, his strength is waning and he is almost at his end when a cruise ship comes by. They ask him if he desires to come aboard, but once more he declines. As the boat leaves, that is the last thing the man sees before he drowns. As he stood in front of the pearl gates, he asks God why he was left to die. God replies, "I sent you 2 row boats and 1 cruise ship. You are the one that turned them away."

Think about that for a moment

They prevented him from going to the hospital to be treated for something that is easily treatable.  They literally killed him.  They should be locked up for their crime, the crime of murdering their own son.  People that murder children will afford no sympathy from me, Anon.

As a Christian I like to see that God is punishing them for not listening to the doctors he sent.

Just sayin'.

This is no ordinary stupidity. This is stupidity so powerful that only DJ 4DM1N himself could stop it.

try to pray away so illness
instead proves to the entire world evolution is right (bad parents have less chance to get their child to maturity hence their genes will be less likely to be passed down)

see this is exactly what I am so afraid of in america. people get mad and say that athiests should just leave christians alone because "they're not hurting anybody". but when our society gets so afraid of stepping on the toes of religion that they let "criminally negligent homicide" go unpunished, we are opening the door for even more people to be hurt.

It's simple. Their prayers were answered in the form of modern medicine. God was probably like "listen idiots, I answered your prayers, just go to the damn hospital".

A post insulting religion? Better thumbs it up.- Atheistfags
1. WBC give more money to charity according to Income Tax Returns than any other group of people in the World, Atheists give the least amount of money to Charity according to Income Tax Returns.
2. Atheists mass-murdered over over 300 million people in the World (over 80 million people were mass murdered by Atheists in China alone) last century, WBC mass-murdered exactly zero amount of people in the past.
3. Members of THE Church Of JESUS CHRIST Of Latter Day Saints believe in keeping the commandments of Jesus Christ, Atheists believe in whatever happens to strike their fancy.
4. Atheists are part of a death-cult, WBC are part of a life affirming Church. Simple as that.

WBC : 4
Atheists : 0

God bless.

So many religious people bashing on atheists in this post. I'm not saying I'm intolerant of religion, but can we all at least agree that these parents are idiots.

Simple solution.
The government is allowed to interfere religion and religious practices when children are involved. Until the child is over 18 and decides they'd choose to pray away their disease instead of seeking medical attention, then it's their problem.
Otherwise, parents should have no right to keep them away from help when they're dying no matter what their "god" says. (God is in parenthesis because it's more likely the church said it and not really god)
