Truth hurts. Reality hurts.
I think my last post was powerfully true.
If you survived cancer then I'd say you're lucky. I was at my Mom's bedside four months ago as she gasped for breath and died. She was still so young. Endometrial cancer spread throughout her body.
She had hundreds of people praying for her, in the name of Jesus, and no healing. The cancers people make it through are ones humans can treat and catch in time. There are no healings in the name of Jesus. And what a terrible thought to think God would heal some while others sincerely draw upon him to be made better and aren't. That's as bad as a god provided from rebellious Hebrews for 40 years, with bread from heaven, but won't feed the thousands of children being prayed for in the name of Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit.
I remember right before my Mom died, she hoped for a miracle, and she was so sincere about it. She was a Christian, and I didn't say much to her to cause her to doubt, because I felt her faith may help her in that time of need. The sick and dying are not the ones to take faith from, as it takes time to readjust through a crisis of faith. One will adapt and do just fine without their former erroneous beliefs, but it takes time. One ought to lose faith in erroneous beliefs in a time of health.
I used to believe people could be healed in the name of Jesus. I remember I once had a wisdom tooth that came and cracked. It got infected and it hurt BAD. I got desperate and in faith, I used the name of Jesus, and very sincerely. Guess what happened? Nothing. I can hear the voices around the world: In the name of Jesus! In the name of Jesus! In the name of Jesus! Over and over... Nothing happens.
No doubt, one can find comfort in the name of Jesus. When they struggle they can lean on that character, as one who suffered and understands and who will be with them through their struggles, but the name of Jesus isn't healing people. Jesus can be a powerful symbol of the purest and most virtuous spirit within nature, but hey, so can the Buddha, Krisha, etc. The virtue radiates in nature through good and compassionate people, apart from even hearing of this legendary Jesus or Buddha.
Anyways, If I had cancer I'd be getting chemotherapy, because the name of Jesus just wouldn't work. Isn't it strange how back pain, stomach ulcers, headaches, and such things are healed by God, but nothing that can be proven medically. No growing back of limbs for amputees, no bread from heaven upon a starving Africa, no healing for the Schizophrenic with a gun to his head.
Damn... Reality does hurt. But it's easier if you accept and surrender to what really is.
