Rich Christian Lady Says Long Lasting Shoes Are Proof Of God (VIDEO)

Across the globe, an estimated 300 million children have no shoes. Almost a billion of the world’s citizens are starving. Let that sink in for just a moment.

With those facts in mind, please forgive me for being cynical when Cindy Jacobs, a wealthy Christian, claims that the fact that she has plenty of food, or that her shoes lasted a long time, is proof of God’s miracles.

“I have seen God multiply food more than one time when I was cooking. When my kids were little, they were always bringing their friends into the house, and I remember spooning out spaghetti or whatever and just prayed and the spirit over that just made more and more and more.


I’ve seen bottles of oil multiply as I was praying for the sick. Bottles of oil just fill up about a cup at a time of oil.”

Then she talked about tires and shoes that lasted a long time.

“And then I had a pair of shoes that I wore and wore and wore for years…these shoes did not wear out and I wore them years and years and years.”

Here’s the video from Right Wing Watch:

Jacobs isn’t the first Christian to find proof of God in every day things. Who can forget former child star Kirk Cameron’s famous ‘Proof of God is in a banana’ video? Here it is:

Of course, I could also say that a banana, which has changed over time, is also proof of evolution.

The fact is, if we look, we could see miracles all around us, but if we look for God in material possessions, we are barking up the wrong tree. Atheists are as likely to be wealthy and have shoes they can wear for “years and years and years.” On the other hand, many of the world’s poor are Christian.

If a Christian has to work that hard to justify their God, perhaps it is their own belief which is at risk. If God is granting miracles to the people who least need it, while letting people go without basic needs, perhaps we should be asking questions not forcing answers.

  • If this seems crazy…think about it next time you are praying to an invisble being or referring to aq book that displays these kinds of ideas. Religion is a hoax for the mental.

  • The Seedless, Cavendish, Banana, is indeed proof of evolution. After all, it’s the perfect shape to fit into your butt.

    If she’s got this super power to create more food out of nothing ala ‘loaves and fishes’, then why isn’t she putting this ‘miracle’ to good use and feeding hungry folks and ‘glorifying’ God?

    Good shoes- act of Gahd, or good worksmanship?

    Occam’s Razor.

  • Evangelicals eat this crap up. Unfortunately, too many of these idiots are in Congress and some are even on the House committee on “science.” I don’t think I need to name names. Anyone with an eye on the right wing and religious fanatics know who they are. Those of us with a modicum of common sense need to do something about that in 2014.
