Joh 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. Joh 9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind? Joh 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I am a bit confused by this verse. Does this mean that God created this man with this sickness only to be able to glorify himself later on? Doesn't this sound really brutal? I mean how does this fit together with a loving God? I really hope that this is not what Jesus meant.
