disabilty

why God made people who was disable like a blind man. Do you think God is unfair?

thanks!!!:mad:

Hello to you. This is a difficult question; I don’t know that an answer will be entirely satisfactory. However, we live in a world, according to the Christian view, that is “fallen.” The world itself is not entirely satisfactory. Sometimes this fallen-ness is revealed by problems such as the one you describe. But it is always there, even in people who appear completely “normal.” All of us are fallen in one way or another, at least in our sinful conditions. Like blindness, this sinful condition is not the way things are “supposed to be.”

I’d look at it this way: The fact that you recognize a problem and are upset by these conditions (along with all of the rest of us) shows that these conditions are not “natural” for us. We see the world and think, “It should be otherwise.”

Even though our conditions are not completely understandable, I would not blame God for them. Rather, I would say, “These are the conditions that God has promised to help us through, and eventually, to redeem completely.” More than that promise I do not know. “We walk by faith, not by sight.”

God is justice, he cannot be unfair.

Check John 9:1

"As he passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And his disciples asked Him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind? Jesus answered, “It was neither that this man who sinned, nor his parents; but it was so the works of God might be displayed in him”.

We all have crosses to bear…just because a person has a handicap does not mean that person is less.

I agree that we all have crosses to bear. Have you ever met some one who is disabled and still happy? I have met many such persons. They accept what they have and move on with their lives. They live it to the fullest as best they can. When we give up hope and use handicaps as a reason to fear, hate or anything else that’s hurtful, then there is a problems.

God never gives us more than we can handle, it is up to us how we handle it!

God Bless!

I’ve met some severely handicapped people who have humbled and inspired me beyond belief. They simply enrich the lives of those they touch.

God Bless,
