I have worked for years with quadraplegics and paraplegics. Those who learn to maximize their ABILITIES, find a way to work around the disabilities and don't let themselves be held back in life.
Most people have abilities they have never recognized. I have seen some people accomplish greater things in life, I am convinced, than they would have as an abled body person.
Difficulties can bring out the best in us,if we put God in control.

Larry -- Why not a serious question? It really has to do with what God expects of a disabled person. If you are disabled and a Christian, this is one of the most important questions to ask.
---Donna66 on 4/14/11

God loves us all . Even those who have disabilities . I have been disabled all 37 years my life . I feel if he didnt love disabled people i wldnt still be alive an living .
---jennifer on 4/12/11

Susan, you can't be serious with that question.
---larry on 4/12/11

Susan. God made all people(his creation) and He loves us all....No ifs buts or ands. All people are equal and all people are beautiful(no exceptions). God does not make junk or anything ugly or inferior.Beauty is not black or white or anything in between. Sin has wreaked so much hatred and ill-thinking in this world. So much pain and sorrow from the wrong type thinking(mindset) Please get over these thoughts today. God loves us all,very,very, much.That will never change. I love you, in Christ.
---Robyn on 4/12/11

God's primary call on every one of our lives is a call to be in relationship with Him and to cultivate that relationship. Anyone with enough mental capacity to ask this question can fulfill this call. Everyone can abide in communion with Christ and bear fruit(love..etc)
---P.C._Leveare on 4/1/11

Mar 4:20 But those that were sown on the good soil are the ones who hear the word and accept it and bear fruit, thirtyfold and sixtyfold and a hundredfold.

//Jesus told us we would do greater things than He did (aside from dying for the sins of mankind), yet we dont.//

Jesus died for (and because of) the sins of mankind. Yet, we live despite them.

I would say that, through the Spirit, we do greater things than Jesus did. Just because we do not understand exactly what Jesus was saying and how it is manifested, does not mean His Words are not true. Otherwise, He is a liar.

There are some overseas missionaries who have been imprisoned and tortured for years for holding onto the Truth. Did Jesus do this?
---aka on 4/1/11

Read up on Mephibosheth.

Every man in the world is "disabled" in the eyes of God. We're all spiritually crippled, spiritually blind, lacking a heart of flesh.
---CraigA on 4/1/11

Yes, I do. I KNOW God loves the disabled.

As the beautiful prose-poem THIS WAS FROM ME put it, "I allowed you to fall sick so that you might bear the arms of unceasing prayer."
---Cluny on 3/31/11

Its true here as well.

The problem is that not even Christians believe it.

Jesus told us we would do greater things than He did (aside from dying for the sins of mankind), yet we dont.

Its not a lack of Gods power, its a lack of faith on our part.
---Jasheradan on 3/31/11

Paul-- nice thought...and true where eternity is concerned.
But tell this to the might get beaten up by a mouth stick!
---Donna66 on 3/31/11

God is Love and is not a respecter of persons. He loves EVERYONE the same. What I'm going to say is still one of the hardest concepts for us to sink our minds into. WE ARE SPIRIT BEINGS (in the image and likeness of God) and our bodies are vessels (temples of the living God)by which God can manifest His potential through us. If you renew your mind (Rom 12:2) to the mind of Christ, you'll discover that your BODY can't stop you from doing anything your MIND want's to do. With God, all things are possible. Our physical beings are limited but our spiritual beings are limitless. Right now, let your spiritual self (which is limitless) dictate to and enhance your physical self. Hallelujah!!! Glory to God!!!!
---Paul on 3/30/11

God loves us all. I don't think God considers anybody "disabled", but He knows better than anybody, even ourselves sometimes, the abilities we do or do not have. And everybody is lacking in some abilities.
What He asks you to do may be difficult, but He doesn't ask what you cannot do.

For instance, He may ask you to take the initiative in befriending someone (maybe an ablebodied person) you feel should be reaching out to you!
Whatever it is, put your fears aside, and do it. You will understand why later.

All of us are asked to do things that may cause us anxiety. If you know Jesus as your personal Savior, you will discover what He wants of you and can absolutely trust Him to help you do it.

God made you disabled for a reason. He made you in His image. He loves you
---Liv on 3/19/11

He should not be to you "Master", but "ABBA FATHER". Do you want to be "SERVANT" or a "FRIEND OF GOD"?
"that God may be everything to everyone" (1 Corinthians 15:28), also Romans 14:22.
Do not aspire to be a Berean or imitate the ancient cultures, everything before the spirit was given is not valid anymore (John 7:39), He wants YOU. Aspire to "LIVE QUIETLY" (1 Thessalonians 4:11). "HEAR" His voice" (John 10:27).
---greg on 4/28/08

As disappointing as it is to so, so many Christians, God favors those who are quick to LOVE Him (instead of the bible, pastors, scholars, etc.). The "strong delusion" (2 Thess. 2) has been around all throughout history for those who don't have love in their heart and MIND (Romans 12:2). NEW Testament Christianity is based on a SPIRIT OF LOVE in the heart.
---greg on 4/28/08

We read the "WORD OF TRUTH" (2 Timothy 2:15, Ephesians 1:13, John 14:6), the INTRODUCTORY doctrine of Jesus (Hebrews 6:1). We should HEAR the "WORD OF GOD" (Ephesians 6:17) and learn the "DEPTHS of God" (1 Corinthians 2:10) so we can know of the "BETTER things that BELONG TO salvation" (Hebrews 6:9).

JESUS is our foundation/cornerstone. If we instead lay a foundation of our own with works/deeds, repentance in Christ becomes impossible Hebrews chapter 6).

Receive "living water" baptism from the spirit and have your conscience purified (Hebrews 9:14) so that you can enter "BY THE DOOR" (John 10:13) and go to the "city of God" (Revelation 3:12). Do not show partiality to the brethren (James 2:1 and 2:9), but treat everyone alike (no special treatment).

You don't have to leave your house in order to love God.
---greg on 4/28/08

God wants YOU to be at peace in yourself. He knows where you are at in your life, AND HE UNDERSTANDS. Sit back for now and get to know Him well (and let Him also have a good, personal relationship with the real you (His spirit "yearns jealously", James 4:5). When the time is right for you to be more active (after you both have a good personal relationship with each other), maybe you will become a good Christian writer.
---greg on 4/28/08

God created and loves all people. He expects the disabled to do what they can with the call on their lives, as do others.We all can do something for Christ.
---Robyn on 4/28/08

I have worked extensively with people who have disabilities. Sometimes I think that they are more God-like than those of us who are non-disabiled. God loves all of us. It hurts me to think that God's love would ever be questioned in a Christian context.

Mentally disabled?
I think that some mental disabilites are of our own making, result of bad decisions. Severe depression.
But He does know the difference from those born with disability without a choice from those that maintain a disability because it's beneficial.
Physical disabilites? God knows what it's like for those disabilities.
---Molly on 4/28/08

God can take what men thinks as disabilities and use it mightly. If you belong to God He loves all of us equally. However, I must stress that those children of His who are quick to obey Him, He favours. There is a scripture that tells us, "you people that depends only on me are precious to me". What God expects from all of His people, is to remain faithful to Him.
---catherine on 4/28/08

If He loved the disabled less than He loves the able, His love would not be true love, because true love does not differentiate on that basis. Whether disabled or able, we are all precious in His sight! P.
---Pierre on 4/28/08

God created us created equally. God doesn't expect us to meet up to his expectations or standards we struggle and work hard at things whether it be parents, friends, and relationships. people who have disabilities have rights. god doesn't want us to feel sorry for ourselves and we need to trust him and have faith. People mock put down our disability saying that we're no good and we'll never make it. trust god.

Yes the Lord loves a disabled person just as much as someone who has no disability. God is looking at the heart of a person not their outer physical limitations. God will never put more on us than we can stand. And what God does ask of us, He will strengthen us through Christ Jesus to do.
---Cynthia on 8/12/07


I have a lot of siblings that are disabled and I know for certain that they have a call on their life. They all understand the Gospel and can witness, however like you and many others they feel a little discouraged sometimes and wonder if they are really making a difference or is anybody really paying attention to their gifts and not just pitying them.
---Marcia on 8/12/07


This makes them assum that God does not expect a lot from them, but the truth is that they have a lot of potential. I am Blessed because of them and I am Blessed by them. They have a greater testimony then us all and so do you!!
---Marcia on 8/12/07

Great question. Of coarse, He loves us all the same. Whatever disabilities a person has they can still serve God and their lives can be a testimony for God just the same as anyone else. Scripturally, I see no mention of different giftings or callings to those who have disabilities. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.

---jana on 5/7/06

I certainly hope He loves the disabled. With all of my health issues, I can be classified as such. I am so glad that He chose the weak, base, and foolish to confound the mighty and wise. In my weakness He is shown to be strong. Good words Leon & mikefl.
---daphn8897 on 3/1/06

Ulrika ... you are so right. Sadly, some refuse to believe it the mind is part of the human frame and that there are physical causes to most mental problems. As you say a chemical imbalance. I suffered severe depression about 15 years ago, which was dealt with by prayer and medication from my (Christian) doctor. Why were the doctors and chemists given the skills to treat illness?

It seems some Christians are more judgmental and unaccepting than God is, when it comes to mental illness. I have read here that instead of a chemical imbalance, it is a demon. Instead of medicine, the demon should be removed. I wonder if a Christian can have a demon. I have accepted Jesus as my Saviour. I would rather have someone lay hands of me and pray that my illness be healed. In the mean time I will take my medicine.
---Ulrika on 2/28/06

I have a minor disability, I can't open or use my left hand, this does not affect me onther then I can't carry heavy goods. I`m at a disability training centre in Exeter, and the Lord is using me to witness to people around me.
We can approach any disability one of 2 ways: to use it glorify God and spread the kingdom, or blame God and miss the opportunities.
---mike6553 on 2/28/06

Just a thought: Since Adam & Eve fell from grace (sinned), there hasn't been a single person, WITH EXCEPTION TO JESUS CHRIST, who has been born without a disability. Sin is the greatest disability known to mankind.
---Leon on 2/28/06

Many of the disabled have a special advantage. They can use their abundance of time to spend in deep, earnest, prayer. A person diagnosed with cancer has a great opportunity for prayer for and with with others concerning their death. The most important of the others is God. What person would not want the opportunity to pray before they die?

I believe God loves the disabled in a special way, but He does not love them more. God expects all christians to do something for Him.

God loves the disabled as well as the able persons. There is no variations. John 3:16 says For God so loved the world that He gave His only beggotten son.

First consider that there is only ONE perfect human. Jesus Christ. All else on earth are "disabled" compared to Him. Knowing that can be humbling (or should be) to our mortal selves. Then know that all God wants from us is love, faith, loyalty. The Bible says with fear and trembling yet means such respect & devotion; we fear we might not show our love completely. Anything else would be "works righteousness" & that dog just don't hunt. Praise God, He is true and fair to His people.
