Because my answer was already turning into an epistle, I will restrict myself to only answering the title question. I am answering from a Charismatic Christian perspective: Where have all the miracles gone? Contrary to the premise of your question, there are more miracles occurring in the world today than at any other time in history: The blind see, ...

(LDS) I can understand your frustration. I want to touch on one point, which I strongly believe in. I know from personal experience that miracles still happen, and I also know that there are living prophets on the earth today, who warn us, prophecy, and perform miracles. What is a miracle? “A miracle is an extraordinary event caused by the power of ...

Sometimes when promoting our own particular views common sense observations are undervalued at the expense of our own bias. I like too thinking about this topic from a common sense perspective and then arranging my own particular view within that. First, it is quite obvious that the massive spikes of miracles in the Bible occurred at the foundation of the ...

Mar 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; Mar 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. Mar 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto ...

All the miracles haven't gone, rather The Miracle has come. John 1:14 (ESV) 14  And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. All your questions come down to this. The incarnation of Christ changed the tangible state of our relationship to God. The ...

I could be wrong, but it seems that people are confusing obedience and faith as terms. For me, faith and obedience are two separate parts of a relationship with God. Obedience is following what we beleive God is asking us to do. Faith is believing that God exists, even though he operates within our lives in a non-scientifically provable fashion. As I see ...

In my own case, I believe the idea of a God-Shaped hole originated in a dream. That dream eventually gave way to a poem I wrote about twelve years ago titled, "The God-Shaped Hole in Me". The poem references the word dream three times and then also speaks of altering the mind. It goes on to talk about connecting the spirit to the stars and finally ...

Al-Hallaj was a sufi mystic from ~900 years after the time of Jesus. He was enamored of the Jesus he knew of, but his own sources and influence were primarily Islamic and his idea of who Jesus was matches the non-divine prophet of Islamic teaching rather that the divine savior of Christianity. He tried to live after the pattern of the stories he had and used ...

Yes. We have Sign of Jonah. Read Matthew Chapter 12. verses from 38. Do not worry. History says that Jesus lived in the earth. We have been using A.D and B.C to refer years. If there is no proof, others will not believe. We have the proof. We are images of God the Most High God.

Reformed Theology would direct people to texts like Psalm 19 and Romans 1:18-25 as teaching that the world around us is proof of not only God's existence but also his attributes. Hebrews 11:3 teaches us that we believe God made everything and that we take this on faith. This is a presupposition which the Christian brings to their view of the world and life ...

Hebrews 11;6 But without faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. James 2;14-26 What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? If a brother or sister be naked and ...

Can someone knowledgeable please offer something of real substance to restore my faith? My heart goes out to you on several levels. Though "knowledgeable" is relative, I will share with you what is on my heart after reading your post. I, too, consider myself an intellectual man. I am studied and well-read. I am more of a cynic than a critic. Yet, in ...
