The Story Behind The Praying Hands A Fake?

Today I received the following comment pertaining to an earlier post that I did where I pasted an e-mail that I received with “the story of The Praying Hands” in it:

Dennis says:

This email is a fake, go to Wikipedia and read the real story, there was no brother involved in any of this, as usual just a BS email for people to believe in the grace of God or something, even when there isn’t any truth to it.

This got my ire up a little bit and here was my response to this individual:

  • Dennis, It’s too bad that you feel that way. If the story is fake, I really don’t care ’cause the picture is inspiration enough to me in itself. As far as the grace of God goes, you picked the wrong person to make that comment to. I personally have experienced the grace of God over and over again in my lifetime. Even to the point of a near-death encounter with the Light!!! So, although I will post your comment, I will not acknowledge any truth to your conclusions. But to each his own, right? Peace, Terri

Needless to say, anyone who has read my blog for more than two seconds knows that this type of comment wouldn’t fly with me!  But if it is true that this story is a fake, my regular readers know that I’d be the first one to say that I was wrong.  I don’t have the time nor desire to go and research this one.  If you would like to explore the veracity of Dennis’s comment, please be my guest.  As I said in my reply, I really don’t care.  I don’t mean that to sound arrogant or condescending, I just mean that I have more important things to worry about right now than this silliness.  It’s obvious that this person is a non-believer.  That’s his God-given right.  Just as it is my God proven right to believe.  The rest you can decide for yourself.  My intent is not to offend anyone but just to set the record straight as I always try to do :).

Peace and blessings,  Terri
