I got this from Jon Birch's "The Ongoing Adventures of Asbo Jesus", and it just nails an element of some parts of the Church which drives me bananas. Here's what I said about it on the ASBO website:
"Thanks for that cartoon. Can’t you post it to culprits everywhere, like one of those messages with all the letters cut out of newspapers?
Re the subject of healing, some very obvious points for those tumshies (Scottish for turnip) who peddle this lack of faith poison:
1. Quite clearly the statistics on death are very compelling. One out of one dies.
2. So (duh!) how can it always be God’s will to heal? Why don’t any of THEM manage to escape dying of something in the end? CLearly it is NOT always God’s will to heal.
3. Death is horrible (my heart goes out to some of the commenters above whose loss has been made even harder).
4.Human beings like to deny the reality of death. (Have you noticed how people say, “If anything happens to me…”, like there’s a chance it might not?! Therefore I reckon all this business of God definitely wants to heal is borne out of the natural desire to deny that death is inevitable.
5. We don’t believe (at all? enough?) in heaven.
Re the subject of wealth: I SO HATE THOSE GOD CHANNEL MONEY GRUBBING SO AND SOs. My natural delightfulness and placid joyful graciousness (ha ha) evaporates at the mere thought of them…
Hurray! That's better. It does feel so good to "vent your spleen" from time to time!
