Why do Christians excuse God's lack of miracles today as unnecessary because we have the Bible? The Jews had the Torah yet God supposedly..?

performed miracles for them constantly, even though they were by nature superstitious and had no problems believing.

The whole point of miracles was to help people believe, so quit saying they don't help belief: "And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written THAT YOU MAY BELIEVE that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name (John 20:30,31).

    What lack of miracles? I have seen miraculous cures in response to prayer, pard. Think again. It wasn't my imagination or the force of my personality that did it. And placebos don't work on babies.

    God still performs miracles constantly, though faith and purity are required for this to happen.

  • Where did you get that information from? From your atheist library?

    The Old Testament was still incomplete (( Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, numbers, deuteronomy)) and little was read, yet God worked miracles through the prayers of his faithful!

    The purpose of miracles is to ask God for his intervention for anything, healing, and more ...!

    We must not call you, to make you see the work of God, which you are outside of Christianity!

    So, we read the scripture, and in context, we pray to God !!

    What was perceived as a miracle 2,000 years ago would just be a trick or illusion today. David Copperfield made a plane disappear, that's a miracle 2,000 years ago.

    What lack? Miracles are happening all the time...

    But why would you want one?

    Needing a miracle means you are in crisis mode.

    It's much MUCH better to live a blessed life.

    go to healing testimonies...

    Cancers, MS... all kinds of 'incurable' diseases have been cured with documented proof.

    Go there IF you want the real-life testimonies of people like me who have been miraculously healed by believing in the power of God.

    Or don't...

    Stay ignorant if you wish.

    Just know that if you CHOOSE to stay ignorant, you will be treated as ignorant.

    1Cor 1:22 For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:

    Miracles are a sign from God. Jesus Christ performed many miracles when he was on earth, and many believed in him because of this fact. But the Jews rejected Christ as King, and rejected him when he was resurrected as well.

    Acts 28:28 Be it known therefore unto you, that the salvation of God is sent unto the Gentiles, and that they will hear it.

    God decided to sent the good news to Gentiles (the Greeks in the verse above). There is no promise to use miracles to convince Gentiles/Greeks. Instead Christians today preach that Christ died on a cross for your sins, was buried, and then rose again. Believe in that and avoid judgment, and be eternally saved.

    They will do anything to keep their fairy tale beliefs intact.

    Christians, when asked for a reason. inevitably just lend a lame excuse.

    See post by Climate Realist for conformation of this fact. Not a fact in sight, just opinion and noise.

      I have never seen you post any facts. Just lies.

    Christers, under the tutelage of their handlers. have a 2000 year history of routinely inventing lies to explain away the irrational, the ludicrous and the rabidly hypocritical bigoted violence prone parts of their sorry religion.
