Why Won't God Heal Amputees? claims are frequently made that someone has had a miraculous cure from a serious illness. but we know that modern medicine can often effect a cure even in cases thought hopeless. we also know that occasionally the bodies own system will overcome a serious illness, so we really can't be certain that any of these cures is a 'miracle. which raises the question, 'why doesnt god heal amputees?' then there would be no doubt that a miracle had occurred. tens of thousands of little children have been maimed by landmines, losing arms and legs. why wont god heal them? many servicemen, some no doubt devout xtians return home with horrible injuries. why doesnt god heal them? i think we all know that god will NEVER heal a single amputee.
