La 4:1 ¶ How is the gold become dim! how is the most fine gold changed!

If I may be so bold as to change this verse and substitute the exclamation marks for question marks it takes on new meaning:

How is the gold become dim? 
How is the most fine gold changed?

Recently I have heard testimonies of people having their teeth filled with gold and gold dust appearing on their faces and hands after prayer, if that doesn't sound weird enough then how about this 'GOLD' fading after a while? How odd. My suspicions were aroused when I first heard about this 'sign' and now they are confirmed after this phenomenon has occurred at the Church I attend. A meeting was held recently during which prayer was made for healing and in particular for teeth, the results of the meeting were many people claim to have had gold dust on their hands and faces, and their fillings changed into 'GOLD'. Even some skeptics were convinced that what had occurred was a miracle from God , however it seems that the 'GOLD' fillings have changed back into their previous 'non precious metal' state. WOW a double miracle.

The questions remain:

Why would God fill teeth with an 'after market' product like gold instead of using real tooth enamel?
Why would this gold then fade or turn back to normal filling stuff?


God didn't do any of this stuff? It's a deception,
ROM:11:29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
IF God ever gives anyone a gold tooth\filling then it is "without repentance" or in other words he wont take it back after a while. Often one deception paves the way for another.(cant wait to see the next one)


OK I admit that this 'gold' thing hasn't reached sacred cow status yet, but I can't help but marvel that in a church that is full of spiritual gifts, why doesn't the 'gift' of discernment operate?

Joe goes to visit his Granny. He brings his friend, Daniel, with him. While he's talking to his Granny, his friend starts to eat the peanuts on the coffee table, and finishes them off. As they're leaving, Daniel says to Joe's Granny, "Thanks for the peanuts." Granny says, "Thanks for nothing. Since I lost my dentures I can only suck the chocolate off 'em."
