Genesis 30: 24, 30-Answering Maharishi Dayananda Saraswati

Rachel being healed of barrenness. Is God a surgeon?   

Those sentences which are colored in orange are from Maharishi Dayananda Saraswati book Satyarth Prakash (The Light of Truth) and those which are colored in black are Jerry Thomas’s response.

"And God remembered Rachel, and God hearkened to her, and opened her womb. And she conceived, and bore a son; and God hath taken away my reproach." (30. 24, 30.)

C. ~ Well done! O Christian God! You are indeed a great surgeon! What were the instruments or medicines with which you opened women's wombs, or was all this done blindly?

Answer: The Holy Bible answers this question too. The power of the word of God is sufficient then and now to heal whom He pleases.

Psalms 107: 19-20 Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, He saved them out of their distresses. He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. 

In fact, one can understand the distress of Maharishi. He never met a God who is so powerful as the God of the Holy Bible.

The Holy Bible notes:

Psalms 113:5-9 Who is like the LORD our God, Who dwells on high, who humbles Himself to behold [The things that are] in the heavens and in the earth? He raises the poor out of the dust, [And] lifts the needy out of the ash heap, that He may seat [him] with princes– With the princes of His people.  He grants the barren woman a home, like a joyful mother of children. Praise the LORD!
