In 2003 I was miraculously healed of a type of polio that has no cure. My surgeon was amazed and asked if I would allow the story to go into the medical journal but he wasn't allowed to do that because it could not be explained medically. I had a prophecy in church and then my bones started coming together spontaneously.

one day i realized that the religion that had been forced down my throat for years as a child did not have to remain a part of my adult life. the epiphany was like a rebirth-i am now a born-again non-christian and couldn't be more satisfied or fulfilled.

I may have witnessed one. A jewish athlete at my college won a track event and broke the school record, then did a victory lap shouting "I see Jesus! I see JEEEESUSSSS". What do you think? ;)

MS is gone

My friend Joan's younger sister got MS when her youngest was 3. it damaged her left eye. She was suffering terrible pain and was starting to spend time in a wheelchair, very depressed. We were all praying for her all the time, but not knowing what to do some raised money for her to go to a famous specialist out of state. When she went to the doctor, he was trying to find the damaged eye and couldn't see any damage, and he ran some tests and told her that she did not have MS, and in fact was healthy. She is fine now. I know it was God, so does she. Her youngest is 14 now.

since you won't be converting any of us to your special brand of Christian Fundamentalism, why don't you Jesus folk go to some Jesus website and start threads?

grow up and ignore it. I might agree with you but I'm not going into threads and whining about it. Like my mom always said "if you don't like it, just don't eat it".

It wasn't whining, it was a pragmatic suggestion.

oh, so you just go into threads and lay on insults to others who post a comment that is relevant to the topic?! maybe you should take your mother's (and your own) advice.

Why do you keep reading the threads if they bother you? No self control to ignore them?

I'm not the above poster(s)...but I keep reading these threads because it's fun to laugh at the religious 'tards. It's a good thing they believe jesus loves them, because no one else can stand them.

5:26 poster. Religion is part of our freedom here in America, just in case you forgot. You know if you don't like, don't read. I really feel so sorry for people with the attitude you have, its OK though you are in my prayers and one day you will see god, his love and his miracles are TRUE. Just pray for your sake its not too late.

to 5:26 poster - were you the bully in the school yard too? Anyone who doesn't think like you do is a "tard?" Grow up. - And, yes, I am making an assumption that you are actually an adult by age. Most of us want our kids to treat others with respect. It's a really tough lesson to teach when they see adults setting that kind of example. I'm sure you thought your comment was funny - and to some of the other "smart kids" on the playground, it may have been -- but to many of us, it was just plain rude, and it is not a whole lot better behavior than that of many of the kids we are shocked by on the news. Internet anonymity doesn't make the behavior any less repulsive.

Some people choose to reject any concepts outside of what is familiar to them. If something is out of what they have experienced, they name it foolish and even are angered by it. This is very common with faith in God issues, whereas those same people might readily believe pop ideas with little or no scrutiny at all. It saddens me when people won't even consider something that might benefit thier lives..they feel safer by trying to squelch it.

3:47, maybe you can get 12:40 to pray for you to get over your bad playground experiences if she's not too busy begging god to shed his light on my unenlightened soul. I answered 4:59's question, plain and simple. I seriously doubt the god squad found my open admission of ridicule eye-opening -- they play the martyr far too well already.

Okay, I am an atheist and read these threads to understand my fellow PTers - and others in the world - who are not.

There's nothing gained by a harsh response ... for example calling someone a "tard "... Make yourself powefrul: use your word (i.e. the things you say) to express yourself, to enlighten others ... but never to hurt ... why would you want to hurt others?

Regarding the 12:40 poster

"Too Late". statements like that are exactly why these Christian threads are destructive and threatening.

To the original poster: Yes, but I consider them too sacred to randomly share. (Cf. Matthew 7:6).

15 years ago I had a stroke that caused a blot clot in my brain. I was in a deep coma for 3 days but a light coma 3 months. I was on a respirator whe I finally got out ofvthe coma 3 months later. I had to learn how to walk talk hokd my head up ect! I am a roman catholic who belonged to a chrasmatic pray group. They had an all night pray vigil for me. Oh yeah I had to have brain surgey becaiuse the put a shunt in my brain because fluid was building but it stopped working. Even though I am catholic I had people praying for me at many different churches a synogues. I am also part of a 12 step program so i had people from that fellowship praying for me. Today with the exception of the whole in my head which no one can see You would never know I had a stroke and brain surgey I raised 4 children and graduated from college with a 3.1. Nothing is impossible with God!

I agree with 10:09 - My thoughts exactly.

12:12 again -- Let me clarify. I agree this is not the place to share those personal experiences - in general. To those of you who have, I have enjoyed reading of your miracles. But to the OP, and anyone who is starting similar religious threads..... It seems you are trying to bring peoples' thoughts to G-d. Admirable; but, please consider the forum. Do you really want to bring Him up for ridicule? It is evident that that is what will happen here. Contention arises and the Lord's name is "spoken" in vain. Purposefully extracting these behaviors from others is not what HE would ask of us. I would prefer to share my thoughts, and experiences in a way that will bring honor to Him.

I can surely relate to that. I had ITP - a blood disorder - went through various chemo/radiation/steriod treatments. Nothing worked. Turned to holistic healing, herbs, crystals, chanting, etc. and the power of the holy spirit. I've been in remission for 2 yrs. The docs still can't figure out why I'm here. Hello! the power of the holy spirit and prayer.

Christian oppression must be tough for all of you. I understand that America and its Christians are the most oppressed people on the planet. Your lives must be so hard

To 12:27

Thank you for your thoughtful comment. This is a marvelous forum, a very unique experience. I am not ashamed of my faith, even when I did not have a real faith in God I listened to other peoples experiences and viewpoints and then I decided to find out if God was real. HE IS Real.
Any group has those who want to hear and those who do not. These threads are private in a way, as one has to take actions to take part in them, so if someone is reading and commenting it's because they want to be involved. Those that ridicule have strong emotions about God..it doesn't matter how it is expressed. Something is happening in thier heart, deep interest.
I will never be nasty to someone who is makes those negative comments about me or about God because I know that God came to mend those broken hearts and provide hope to the hopeless. Some are reading and perhaps are learning something. He changed me and I wanted to share it. The God that does miracles is not dead..He is still in the miracle business. I know there are a lot of miracles..but some are afraid to tell about them now. Thanks for your time.

8:16 was being sarcastic..but I see more and more persection occuring unless your faith is as inconsequential as one's shoe size.

Some of you are funny. Some of you are rude. Some of you are scary!

I'm a Christian, but I echo a previous poster about whether this is the place for such a thread. I don't make my faith a secret in my groups or on my team, but there are many more bashers here than believers. I'd rather not invite that on myself!

For those who have had poor religious experiences. I agree. I was fed religion when I was younger too. But that was religion: Don't do this. Do that. You'll pay for that! I walked away from it for a long time. I've found now, that mature faith is a relationship with God. Not doing a bunch of junk to try to appease some god who is bent on nothing but punishment. That's not Christianity. Many give us a bad name.

This person give you christians a bad name

And the fact that none of you are outraged and calling for his show to be cancelled gives you a bad name.

I'm 3:56...I rest my case...Pat Robertson definitely gives us a bad name! I don't see a reason to call for the cancelling of his show. People like him usually have a way of getting themselves cancelled...hello Jon and Kate!

I disagree, sorry. You need to do something, because he claims to be one of you

I am not the person who posted the link, but I agree with what he says. If you christians tolerate this hate, when he is claiming to be one of you, and claiming to speak for you, then you have no reason to complain when we think it is you as christians who act like this. If he does not speak for you, if he is not one of you, then stand up and say so. That was evil filth of the worst kind. And no, he is not going away, he has been spewing this for decades now, and I have not heard a single peep out of any of you.

I guess, according to him, that the Haitians have seen a miracle, a divine intervention, as the OP stated.

What a deity you worship. Original Sin which is punishment just for being born. Sexism, Racism, World Cataclysms as a punishment....

3:31, but isn't that just thinking in a shallow way? That just because Pat Robertson is an idiot, then all Christians must think the say way. Wait, I've changed my mind. You're right...and all fat people are lazy, and all black people are inferior, and all blondes are dingy, and all men are bumbling bafoons, and all jocks take steroids, and all women with short hair must be gay, and, well, you get the point.

Maybe what 3:31 was saying was that if we christians are silent and do not denounce evil when evil claims to be one of us, then we can't complain when the rest of the world thinks we are OK with it. Not that we are all hateful, but that we are content to have someone hateful represent us. We can't expect nonchristians to sort us out if we don't bother to.

Talking about my Spirit is just part of who I am. I live from my Spirit. I'm sorry if that offends. I couldn't care less if anyone else on PT believes this or that.

I used to have a seizure disorder. Once I was crawling back to my dorm. I was covered in blood from the waste down- my cycle set off the seizures. I made it home but collapsed at the bottom of the 4 flights of stairs. My friend appeared and said little, he began to drag/carry me up the stairs- I must have blacked out next thing I knew I was on the top floor and he helped me to my room. He tried to get me water and I said "NO!" he left. I unfortunately could have really used the water.

Later I thanked my friend and he told me he was never there. I always have thought it was an angel. I think a compassionate human who would carry me up the stairs would never have been so obedient and not gotten me the water.....
