"For with God nothing shall be impossible."
Do you realize that the Bible's own arguments have been stolen by evolutionary scientists in their attempt to prove that there are no such things as miracles? It's past time that Christians reclaim those arguments in order to deflate the doubt that has been created.
Evolutionists say that since the world is an orderly place with predictable physical laws, we know that miracles can't happen. And they're right on everything but their conclusion. It is because the world is an orderly place with predictable physical laws that miracles are important.
The Bible clearly teaches that the world follows orderly laws. For example, Genesis 1:11 tells us that plants reproduce in an orderly, predictable pattern – after their kind. In Genesis 1:14 we read about how the stars move across the sky in an orderly pattern so that we can tell what season it is. And if the world was not an orderly, predictable place, we couldn't tell if something was a miracle or not. In a world where things happen willy nilly, miracles would have no meaning.
It is only in a predictable world that science can study where miracles can be what the New Testament calls them – signs. So the very reason evolutionists use to deny the existence of miracles is really the only reason we have to accept the possibility – and the reality – of the Creator's miraculous working in His creation!
