Re: prove it
|...I don't treat the things of God via science, and learned that it is not always wise to try to use "proof" to let people know in terms of documentating miracles.|
While I agree with arach's statement that miracles cannot be "proven", what's wrong with investigating them scientifically? Don't you think it would be a tremendous draw to Jesus if some miracles were highly docmumented? If enough evidence is provided for the "non-naturalness" of the occurance a majority of people would believe in its supernaturalness.
Didn't Jesus himself use miracles to draw in unbelievers?
|"I have testimony weightier than that of John. For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me."|
|Jesus answered, "I did tell you, but you do not believe. The miracles I do in my Father's name speak for me..."|
|...believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father."|
I would think that if it is good enough for Jesus to use miracles as a lure, then it should be good enough for the Church today. Kind of surprising that they don't try harder to show off the miracles that do happen.
