How God Likes to Use Power

    One of the most frustrating realities, and at the same time one of the most wonderful realities, is that God is not like us.

Why Doesn’t God Heal Amputees?

  This is a great question. I mean that. It really is. To be more precise, the question is “why does God seem to heal all types of diseases, but never once heals someone with an amputation?” Don’t get me wrong. I know how this question can be asked.
