"Do miracles (please state which ones) prove that God exists?" Miracles are an evidence of God. Proof would preclude faith. Without faith it would not be Christianity.

While all things denote there is a God, miracles do not prove His existence. God's miracles and wonders and blessings can all help us increase our faith and can build up our own personal witness of God's existence. However the only thing that can give anyone a sure knowledge of the truth is a personal witness through the Holy Ghost. When He speaks to our ...

There are inscriptions found in Kuntillet Ajtud and a further inscription found scratched on bedrock in a tomb at Khirbet el-Qom in Judah, that appear to say the goddess Asherah was considered to be the wife of Yahweh.

The short answer to the O.P.’s question that their will proceeds from the Divine Nature. There is only one Divine Will, and each Person wills with the very same Will.

The truth of Jesus Christ is rooted in real-time history; not idealism, or subjectivism. (1 Corinthians 15:13-19 is all important here) IF you say you believe the God/Man Christ Jesus... a.) singularly provided atonement for our sins and ...

Yes, I believe God does have genuine affection for us individually. Remember, the word affection has to do with affect, or emotion. To be affected by someone is to have one's emotions stirred in some way, be it in a positive or negative way. Besides its use as a verb, the word affect can also be used as a noun: His affect was remarkably subdued. To ...

John 3:16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Romans 8:16-17: The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer ...

Everything is subject to God's providence, but that does not imply God necessitates everything to happen the way it does. St. Thomas Aquinas, in his Summa Theologica I q. 22 a. 4 article "Whether providence imposes any necessity on things foreseen?," answers: Divine providence imposes necessity upon some things; not upon all, as some formerly believed. ...
