Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Everytime someone is brought to salvation. I consider the very act of God in monergism which goes against human nature to be a miracle.

 In view of my sins, the very next breath I take is a miracle.

It is a wonder why each night God doesn't take us sinners in our sleep. Every morning is another day in grace Matthew 5:45.

 I think of other things as well.

 

 How many times have I looked in lust, but I can still see.

 How many times I allowed my ears to listen to dirty jokes or vanity, but I can still hear.

 How many times I have used my hands in wickedness, but they still function.

 

 So yes, there are countless miracles. I think too often that we (myself included) look what we would consider huge or loud from God that would get our attention, but let us not ignore His continual whisper of something beautiful.

Hello Michael,

 Thanks

a great miracle has been given unto me. I have seen the spirit of the lord I beheld the heavens open up and the church of God come down from heaven. I stood in the Lord's presence, I am a living witness God has chosen me to see great wonders that only the prophets themselves have seen, I saw the spirit coming down with great bolts of lightning flashing all around him and when the lightning subsided I beheld the Lord's spirit come forth and I could see what he was wearing he was covered in living vibrating atoms even his clothes came alive .than the spirit began to lay hands on the people in the church that's where this miracle happened and there were many other spirits laying hands on the people .i have much more to tell you if you want me to continue.

I've always wanted to ask the author of Revelation whether we should understand his vision as literalistical or symbolical? Hope you don't mind if I forward the question to you?

I cannot help but believe in miracles because I am living proof of being one. Yes, salvation is that miracle I have to bring my thoughts back to ever since it happened in 1967 . There are subsequent miracles that have occurred over the years . But having the assurance of knowing God and the grace He poured out upon me is the greatest miracle of all .    M

    • Miracles in other religions

      In the gospels, we can see that Jesus performed various miracles. But what about those miracles performed in other religions, some say even now. What will you say about it? My classmate was making a point for Hinduism by this news: http://www.thehindu.com/news/american-mathematicians-solve-ramanujans-deathbed-puzzle/article4253593.ece   Even to this date, people in India say and claim that their gurus are doing miracles. What will y'all say about it?

    • Did the churches at Rome and Constantinople compete with each other over "miracles"?

      I have been advised tio take great caution over "evidences" from the Middle Ages as reports of Jesus and the apostles were often forged to gain credibility for the churches making them.   If you know a source detailing the claims please advise.

    • Do Miracles Really Violate the Laws of Science?

      The late Christopher Hitchens, in his debates with Christians, liked to put his opponents on the spot with a straight question or two, gravely asked. “Do you really believe that Jesus was born of a virgin? Do you really believe that he rose from the dead?” If the Christian answered in the affirmative, Hitchens would turn to the audience with a theatrical flourish: “Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, my opponent has just demonstrated that science has done nothing for his worldview.”   It is alwa
