MIRACLES – DO THEY EXIST?
Christmas (when Christians celebrate a virgin birth, angels, and a mysterious star) seems like a timely season to mention the topic of “miracles”, and whether or not they exist. In my studies in Christian Apologetics at HBU I read both Hume & Lewis and their opposing views on this controversial topic. Should you find interest in reading a modern, intellectual approach to the possibility of miracles I would strongly recommend Eric Metaxas’ 2014 book, Miracles. Metaxas is a Christian and a NYT best-selling author. I read Miracles last year and found it compelling. To read a solid review that Metaxas, himself, posted recently on Twitter click here.

“For a planet to be truly habitable it must simultaneously reside in all nine known habitable zones (liquid water, ultraviolet, photosynthetic, ozone, rotation rate, obliquity, tidal, astrosphere, and atmospheric electric field). Of the 3,547 planets discovered so far, only one resides in all nine known habitable zones — Earth.” Astronomer, Hugh Ross, The Improbable Planet: How Earth Became Humanity’s Home

“Those who determine to walk with God become the target of the enemy… If you have already made such a commitment (to walk with God), I can assure you that the host of hell has already gotten word… 2 Timothy 3:12 says straight out, ‘In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” Chuck Swindoll

Watch this classic scene from the Carol Burnett Show. Equally funny as Tim Conway falling down the stairs in slow motion is watching Carol Burnett and Harvey Korman desperately trying not to laugh…
