LMAOOOOO these folks really be killing me (SkullLoudly crying faceLoudly) they really be expecting you to get up and just start magically walking

@Funmiscute said;

Did this person understand the meaning of wheelchair accessible? I guess not. Most churches just build without this consideration, even we with standing feet dey complain

@imade43 commented;

In the minds of many christians, we have limited God to mere signs and wonders, discarding the relevance of His will. What if God does not want to heal at that time, does it make Him less worthy of our worship?

@Tol_eosamh also replied that;

I think rather than questioning why, we should make awareness to churches, churches are no different from some banks, government buildings who don't have it planned. The person's response reeks of ignorance and imagine the % of such ignorance among church goers.
