Sep 19 '21 at 5:06 comment added Nigel J The 'natural' healing process is also of God. It is of his creative power that our bodies do heal themselves. . . . . which is a 'miracle' I would say. Just as sight is a miracle and hearing is a miracle and thought process is a miracle.
Sep 19 '21 at 1:09 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @NigelJ - Then it becomes harder to tell. How would you distinguish between God healing pneumonia slowly but steadily and healing of pneumonia via natural means?
Sep 19 '21 at 1:04 comment added Nigel J Let's just stick to pneumonia for the sake of a common example.
Sep 19 '21 at 0:57 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @NigelJ - Does that include e.g. severe cases of scoliosis and legal blindness?
Sep 19 '21 at 0:47 comment added Nigel J Any kind of sickness that prevents someone serving.
Sep 19 '21 at 0:46 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @NigelJ - It depends. What kind of sickness are we talking about?
Sep 19 '21 at 0:43 comment added Nigel J So if the elders visit someone who is sick and pray over them and anoint them with oil - and then, in time, with a healing process and a period of recuperation, they return to the assembly, well again : is that an action of God . . . . . or not ?
Sep 19 '21 at 0:38 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @NigelJ - the 'miracles' tag has a similar definition: Actions of God not explained by normal laws of physics, chemistry, biology, or the natural sciences
Sep 19 '21 at 0:28 comment added Nigel J Well, certainly not Wikipedia's : but it's your question, not mine.
Sep 18 '21 at 23:25 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @NigelJ - do you have a specific definition in mind?
Sep 18 '21 at 23:14 comment added Nigel J So you are not defining 'miracle' and 'sign' from scripture.
Sep 18 '21 at 21:44 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @NigelJ - I like Wikipedia's definition: A miracle is a supernatural event that seems inexplicable by natural or scientific laws. Under this definition, natural remissions are, of course, not valid examples.
Sep 18 '21 at 21:36 comment added Nigel J What is the definition of 'miracle' that you are using in this particular question ? A case of Parkinsons Disease Remission in a 78 year old male has been attributed merely to the patient's habit of personal meditation and has been documented scientifically. There is no 'miracle'. It is a purely natural process.

Sep 18 '21 at 20:25 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @Geremia - By a denomination at large.
Sep 18 '21 at 20:16 comment added Geremia "Officially recognized" by whom?
Sep 18 '21 at 19:41 comment added Spirit Realm Investigator @KenGraham - if they are officially accepted by a non-Catholic denomination, sure!
Sep 18 '21 at 19:41 comment added Ken Graham Would Marian Apparitions be acceptable?
