Sadly, it can't regrow brains.
That should be easy enough to prove, right? I can't see any reason why they'd lie about something that can be demonstrated with medical records.
Or even better, we can chop something off of Mr. Joyner, possibly even under anesthetic, let the stump heal over (if he wants to accelerate this process via prayer, he'll be allowed), and then he can pray it back on camera for all to see.
Unless he's full of shit.
And what are all those books behind him for? Insulation? Because he obviously doesn't read anything worthwhile, and certainly nothing that comes in a hardbound set.
No, it's perfect. If he ever gets cornered into something like that, with cameras and skeptics of his regenerative prowess, all he has to do is give it his most flashy try, and then say it didn't work because the observers didn't have enough faith, and his flock will buy it.
He's not selling to you or me -- he's selling to those religious people who are so desperate to see things like what's described in their holy book -- who are so desperate for acceptable proof that their god exists, and has an active relationship with his believers just like in the bible-- that they will voluntarily turn off all their critical thinking and fork over money, no questions asked, for the experience of being told what they want to hear.
If some morning I woke up to discover that I'd become a completely immoral asshole, I'd go into the ministry. It's about the only career left that's both open to the common person and where there's always a job opening that promises some profit.
And you don't even have to believe that bullshit, you just have to be real good at selling it!

So God gave this guy the finger?
Yeah, one time I was praying for world peace and it ALMOST happened, I swear, but I got distracted and, welp no world peace. Oh well...
"Wait, don't you want the cure for cancer? How about infinite clean energy? You want your finger back. Really? Huh. I guess I have nobody to blame this one on but Myself, Praise Me."
I bet this is why you never see any Christian Yakuza. That would be cheating.
A thousand children with a Toys R Us credit card with no limit on it would not be able to maintain an unending fantasy world with no hint of reality as well as Christians do.

At least he's the "friendly neighbor" kind of preacher and not the "yelling maniac" kind of preacher.
Wait until he hears you're not a member of his tribe or their allies. Then the real christianity makes an appearance.
Your leg didn't grow back?
YOU DIDN'T PRAY HARD ENOUGH!!!
