Do they really have bad problems, or do they just like to kvetch?
Are they starving? Are bombs falling on their heads? Do they have enough money to pay their bills?
I certainly don't want anyone to suffer, but there are people out there who are suffering more than \"Health problem and Demons.\" I suggest you start talking to folk outside your church whose conversational topics can stretch to people other than themselves.

\"Every Christian I know seems to have major problems.\"
That is because denial and other types of psychological 'defense mechanisms' tend to keep us from dealing with an unpleasant reality head on, and are not an effective solution to most health problems by themselves. ...just a thought.

*takes deep cleansing breath*
Yep, I'm feelin' great!

The Lord is probably trying to teach you to grow a spine and figure your own way out of your problems rather than wait for him to do it for you.

Once more, \"God\" is just the nicest guy ever, you know? Now see, MY mom gets me \"ready\" for hard times by packing me warm cookies and pampering me as much as possible. She also prepares me with advice and assurances of her love.
She does not hit me with a stick to harden me up for more hitting later.
If God were real, the CPS would have to take all His \"children\" away from Him for their own good.

The Lord is probibly getting us ready for something.
Yeah, for finding out that He really didn't give a rat's butt about what church you belonged to, how much religious ritual you went through and and how much you \"accepted Jesus in your heart\". The only thing that has ever been rewarded on this earth is knowledge. Maybe Christians should stop planning for the \"rapture\" and start trying to figure out how the world works. The Hopi indians had a simple two-commandment religion: (1) don't go around hurting people and (2) try to understand things. Christians should try that instead of focusing on stuff like \"don't covet thy neighbor's wife\" and \"honor the Sabbath\"

It's like how facts are a test of faith.

Prayer over Medecine! You'll get sick and die, but at least you'll be ready for Heaven!

God helps those who help themselves, dork.

So, let's see. You have health problems. You pray that they get better, but they persist. Atheists, who choose medicine over prayer, have greatly reduced health problems.
1. Prayer is ineffective. Medicine is effective. (Unexplained entities: 0)
2. Prayer is better than medicine, but it isn't working now because God is testing you or preparing you or something. (Unexplained entites: 2) (Actually, you could say 3; God, the efficacy of prayer, and the nature and intentions of God, seperate from his existence.)

I think I'll pick explanation #1.

Incidentally, saying \"God helps those who help themselves\" is just a roundabout way of giving God the credit for your own work, while glossing over the problem of how an omnipotent loving god can be so useless.

You know... after reading more of the comments on that page.. I can almost bet that the primary reason they frequent the website is BECAUSE their lives are sucking so hard. Also maybe they wouldn't suck so bad if they got off the damn computer and did something other than look up at the sky and say \"What' up yo?\", and wait for the end of times to come.
Oh and of course all the non-christians in Iraq are having a fucking hay-day for the past few years.

Put down the Kool Aid, and you'll soon start to feel better

Are you sure that your prayers are going to God and not Nurgle?

Or, the ones who are not crazy idiots go to the doctor when they are sick. It seems like demons only attack Christians...
And please write whole sentenses. "For the past year." Something is mssing before or after that. (My guess is that it's supposed to belong to the sentence before that. But then not even a comma is requred.)
