What is the DIFFERENCE between MAGIC and MIRACLES?

    Miracles are the workings of natural and eternal laws.

    Magic is fake, pretending non-existent powers. Miracles are real, by the power of God.

    They are both imaginary - so there is no difference.

    Magic can be defeated or exposed while a miracle is beyond the human thinking.

    Miracles are only from our heavenly Father  - Almighty God.  

    Magic is a deception so is always of the DEVIL just as it was in Egypt

    You're welcome!

    They're totally different things.  But they're related!

    Okay so God made up natural law, like gravity and stuff.  Natural law has always been supreme.  Nobody change it or defeat it.  A miracle is when God decides to suspend natural law.  Like a woman having a baby without sex.  Or a man who gets executed, then three days later gets up and walks away.  Those are miracles because they are counter to natural law but God did them (people believe).

    Magic is when a person defeats natural law.  Make something float in the air, for instance.  Not by a trick but actually make it defy gravity.  Or if you cut a lady in half, but it wasn't a trick, you really did saw her in half, and then she got back together, none the worse for wear.

    I don't think neither miracles or magic exist.  But a lot of people believe in both of them.

    As you approach the doors of a large department store, Shout "By the POWER of PHUQUIORAS!" and the doors will open by themselves.

    THAT is a miracle.

    Other people approach the SAME doors, and say nothing, but the doors still open. THAT is magic.

    You have control of magic, but miracles happen if the gods will it.

    One irrational event is sanctioned by a religious body and the other isn't.
