      Agreed Leon. it gets really annoying really quick. And they wonder why I don't believe in a all knowing but completely unprovable father figure that has one sin that's unforgivabl;e.... asking if it's real.... aka blaspheme

      It's a hospital, so they's still medicate and do what they can to help you. Plus, we all know most doctors are Jewish, so, there's that.

      Okay guys, I agree that a private or community owned hospital would be better, and I'm not a religitard but you don't have to be ignorant about it. Yeah, the way Kendall wrote it kinda had it coming for him, but respect beliefs and all that shit.

      @anyone who does @kendall God doesn't just give shit for free. You have to earn it. Do you know what it would be like if God answered everybody's prayers? Complete and utter chaos. Haven't you ever seen Bruce Almighty? It's a fine example of that.

      And Freq-Sho, God is provable. And you ARE allowed to question his existence. It's called "free will". Also, the unforgivable sin is mocking the holy spirit. If you do this, then you will surely go to hell. I pray for you.

Even then it may not be instant in fact it usually isnt. There is something called patience... GET A CLUE

      And people who are talking about praying for a nice new car, praying dosent work like that. You have to work to get what you want. The bible isnt just going to GIVE you things. You have to work and will help you if it sees something unjust. it may take longer than you want and it may never happen at all because you need to have faith and kindness in order to live on.

      Praying does work. But God put conditions on it. We should only ask for what we need, not want. We must not be asking out of lust. We cannot have iniquity in our hearts, and we must believe that Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins and rose again on the third day.

      Bob2ball has never been to a religous church, nor has heard of one. A religious church doesn't pray, moron, they just abide by the rules of their religions, such as no abortions, obligatory burial rites, etc. It''s a hospital with a priest in it, and usually they have cutting-edge technology as taxes dont apply 90% of the time because its a "religious institution"

    If someone tries to push their religion on you. Just try to sell them drugs. It creates an awkward conversation because neither of you want to buy each others shit.

    Modern medicines can do miracles, but can have bad side effects.

    I really gave up bringing up religious talk long ago in my daily conversations cuz no one listens. Not to say I don't believe in God and that Jesus died for my sins, but unlike many of those Christians that get all triggered when they hear atheists and non Christians speak about how they don't believe in God, and so they get all defensive about it. Why else do you think many atheists think we are stupid lunatics that believe in a 'fairy tale'. Just stop. And atheists, I have a message for you. Praying for a car is not gonna get you a car. However in my past experience, praying for a person's good will has worked but takes time. You can't expect things to happen immediately. Also when it comes to the bad stuff(world hunger, holocaust,etc), those are human problems we need to solve ourselves. God gave us a bible so that we can be given guidance through these troubled times. We are like children, but we have reached adolescence. In my opinion that's why God hasn't solved those issues, because it's our turn to solve them ourselves. Also about the bible. Most traditions mentioned in the bible are ancient and for the most part not practiced in modern society. And a final word, all those murderers, rapists, pedophiles, criminals in general that claim they are Christian aren't really Christian because as I recall in the bible it says thou shall not murder. Stop thinking of us as people who believe in a lie. We can believe what we want. I let you believe theres no God, cuz it doesn't affect my life in any way. As a matter of fact, I have a few atheist friends. That is all

    Has praying ever cured smallpox, cow disease, flu, etc? No... well then, the answer should be obvious!

    I'm already a servant, but not to lutheran, catholic or anything like that. I really think this was a bad idea, people are warring about something that should not be argued over.

      Well... A mint brew helped my tonsillitis out and made my breath fresh. But I agree on praying doesn't work.
