It seems those who adhere to mythical Bronze Age deities are also open to believing in miracles as well. Yet it seems these same folks will pick and choose which to believe in. Angels- yes, fairies-no. Demons-yes, ghosts-no. It goes on and on.
A faith based on miracles is not a mature faith. God performed the greatest miracle of all time in coming to earth as the Man Jesus Christ to die on the cross for our sins (Romans 5:8) so that we could be saved (John 3:16). God does still perform miracles-many of them simply go unnoticed or are denied. However, we do not need more miracles. What we need is to believe in the miracle of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. The purpose of miracles was to authenticate the performer of the miracles. Acts 2:22 declares, "Men of Israel, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know." The same is said of the apostles,
to answer this question we must understand what the word miracle means . the meaning of a miracle is ''' an event not ascribable to human power or the laws of nature and consequently attributed to a supernatural, especially divine, agency. Such an event may be attributed to a miracle worker, saint, or religious leader''''. in other words there is no cause and effect involved in miracles .making them imposable to accrue ... another easy way of looking at miracles is to say there is a cause an effect but it is unknown . there is not enough information to determine what has taking place .. leaving unanswered questions that always leads to a number of unreasonable answers that are not true . information is key . :)
Not necessarily. Satan is capable of doing things we would term 'miraculous' as well. We see examples when God thru Moses goes head to head with the Pharaohs magicians. There will also be plenty of examples in the end times when false prophets and false self proclaimed gods perform miraculous signs and wonders designed to mislead.
If your definition of a miracle is an act of a god, and not phenomena, then your mind is already made up as to their origin. But there are many, many more tragedies than miracles. Miracles are a foolish reason to believe a god is good. If you have more bills, than money to pay them with, would you call yourself rich?
