Man: “Hey, I am running so god will give me good health”
Woman: “I am running because exercise is what gives you good health, not god”
I was reading this on a local church website, A New Life Christian Fellowship Church – Grand Rapids, MI
Jim F. –
“Recently, I went to the doctor and found out that my blood pressure was high – 150/100. Soon after, at a meeting, Andrew had anyone with a need for healing come forward. We all held hands and I asked God for my blood pressure to be 120/80. High blood pressure is asymptomatic so you can’t tell if it’s high or low. Knowing that faith without works is dead, I extricated myself from the couch and started running. Three weeks later, on my next visit to the doctor, my blood pressure was 117/76. Praise to Him who is able to do above what we ask and think!”
wow! The fact that his blood pressure went down probably had nothing to do with the fact that he started running, and moving about instead of sitting his ass on the couch, and had EVERYTHING to do with god. right.
Well guess what, I am an ATHEIST. I do not believe in the idea of a personal deity. One day my cholesterol was high. I changed my eating habits, my exercise habits and guess what?!?!?! All praises be to ME my cholesterol was lowered! Was it god? or was it the fact that I changed my habits to produce the desired effect?
I will tell you flat out. In both cases, the blood pressure and the cholesterol, god was not involved one bit. Both issues were resolved due to real world works, running, and altering habits, real people making real change in the real world. There is no need to invoke the supernatural in either case.
