I think Nigel J has a point regarding the definition of miracles. An obsession with miraculous healings can often overshadow the invisible, but arguably superior healings which apply to the whole person. For example, when Jesus heals the paralytic in Luke 5, he precedes the physical healing with forgiveness of sins, which is for the onlookers arguably the ...

Where can I find official documents of Buenos Aires' Eucharistic Miracle? There are no known “official” published documents about the Buenos Aires' Eucharistic Miracle. Neither the Vatican nor the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires have formally published an official stance one the issue. In most circumstances regarding miracles, it is the diocese in question that ...

As someone who comes from a denomination that continues to anoint with oil and pray for the healing of the sick, there is no disease that we do not pray for. Christians pray not only for little things like colds, and major things like blindness and polio, but even for the dead. We believe that God can and does heal the sick today in his name, although he ...

Unless the question is about individual cases being confirmed as inexplicable, there isn't going to be a good answer to this. Scientific confirmation of a supernatural cause would require very different test conditions than what is currently available. There's no doubt that "miraculous" healing occasionally occurs, even to non-believers. But for ...

There is one medically documented case I can think of found here. Furthermore, the miracles of healing at Lourdes are heavily debated and often well cited. Much more nuanced discussion can be found in Craig S. Keener's 2-volume tome Miracles. Somewhat more accessible is the publicly available PowerPoint from Dr. Keener found here. And a lecture by him here. ...

Although it may "resolve" on it's own, many secular mental health professionals consider Multiple Personality Disorder, now known as Dissociative Identity Disorder, to be incurable. There is speculation in the literature that at least some instances of demonic possession, whether in Scripture or currently in environments amenable to such a ...

You may want to look into this study on the effectiveness of the ministry Be In Health's flagship class at curing depression. They take the hard cases of Christian healing, and over the years The Holy Spirit has taught them a lot of things about a lot of deep and otherwise incurable diseases, disorders, syndromes, etc. Effect of a Faith-Based Education ...

Many healings during modern revivals have been medically confirmed. Far fewer have been documented or published. There certainly is no biblical reason for miracles to cease. The same reasons for which the apostles performed miracles continue to exist today. Many people still need encouragement to believe. They still need God to help them with problems ...

To protestants, morality is more important than physical traditions. A soul coming to repentance is more of a miracle than a basilica built by thousands of diamonds. A miracle that doesn't have any moral aspect of salvation, is not more important than some other sorcery of Ancient Egyptian magicians. And coming to Eucharist, what protestants see in Eucharist ...

I recently answered a question related to Catholicism and then one for Pentecostals/Charismatics, so now I will attempt to complete the trifecta and answer a question on behalf of Protestants, if that is even possible. There are obviously many denominations of Protestants with differing views on the Eucharist. Protestants feel that Catholics have taken the ...

While researching this question, I found reference to this verse, 2nd Thessalonians 2:3-10 3 Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness[a] is revealed, the son of destruction,[b] 4 who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes ...

I know this is going to be dissatisfying to some people, but no. At least not in the specific circumstances you are referring to. The issues with these revivals is that they tend to build psychological hype and create pseudo miracle experiences. The other difficult part is defining "healing". Some illnesses can be furthered by the mind and an event ...

One of the first recorded examples of this is when the angels went to Sodom to warn Lot and his family to flee the wrath that was about to fall on Sodom and Gomorrah. Gen 19 12The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13because we are going to ...
