God Refuses Prayers Of Paralyzed Little Boy

Read this article.. It's years old, but still makes me very sad that God refused to answer this poor child's prayer despite how hard the boy fought and hoped God would come through. This makes me very sad that God turned away from him and refused to heal him. I don't know how I feel about this.

This is NOT a reputable source of news. The Onion is poking fun at Christianity. This is not a real story but a very bad joke. Don't trust the Onion for anything legit.

See, that's why I thought the website looked familiar. I knew such blasphemy couldn't be true . Why do people fabricate such nonsense? It really bothers me. I just have no words for that stupid website.

You can tell from the way the Lord supposedly replied to the boy "No, you can't get out of your wheelchair - not ever!" That doesn't sound like the words of our Father to me.

Don't trust that website at all... !

hardly that one who answered (to) the boy("no, you cannot get out of your wheelchair. not ever.") was the true God, only some devil can answer thus, and hopefully that the true God will heal the boy - it's a pity such a little child to be refused

Matthew 21:22 "all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."

Now that the story is proven to be fake, here is a serious question. Let's say this story was in fact real, and there was a child somewhere in the world who was confined to a wheelchair, and this poor child prayed to the Lord everyday with all his might, and the child asked God to grant him the power to walk again. Do you think God would be physically capable of granting such a wish? Is something like that even realistically possible? Can enough faith do the impossible?

It's very obvious that the article is parody.

Yes. I have met people who have been made able to walk after prayer. I've met people who have been healed of blindness.

I don't know if it's about enough faith, though. God isn't Santa. You don't get your wish because you believed hard enough.

But I mean... How though? How is it realistically possible to heal the blind and even being able to walk again after being in a wheelchair? I don't think even modern science is that advanced enough to do that, is it? If God does truly have that kind of power, then that is really amazing..

He truly does

Modern science hasn't worked out how to create the universe, either. God is far more powerful then anything or anyone on earth.

The Onion is a hoax. The Onion specializes in printing satirical articles, or just plain lies, for entertainment purposes.
