Questions god to which Harvard prays

Questions god to which Harvard prays

  • 0

I see that Harvard, the Mecca of wisdom of the educational community, has come up with the opinion that prayer does not help when someone is sick. I wonder what god the people in this study are praying to.

This is also the place that has produced economists that tell our government that a sound economic policy is to reduce taxes and run up an astronomical national debt that will be paid for by our children and grandchildren.

It is very hard for me to believe that anyone from an Ivy League school has any insight as to a true relationship with God, including their divinity school that remained silent when this study was released.

When we have people, in the name of Christianity, advocating wars and killing of innocent women and children is it any wonder that we have Christianity hated by many of the people of this world.

I have the feeling that the Christianity that these people profess would be criticized by Jesus the same way he found fault with the Pharisees of his day.
