Does the Bible teach that miracles occur today? – By Bob Prichard

To answer this question, we must consider the real issue. There is no question that Christ and His apostles performed miracles, because the Bible clearly says that they did. There is also no question whether God is powerful enough to perform miracles, because we know that He has infinite power. It is also not a question of whether there is value in prayer for the sick, because the Bible tells us to pray for the sick. The question is not one of what we think we have seen, but what does the Bible teach about miracles today? Continue reading

A beginning point in understanding the subject at hand is to define “miracles.” Noted charismatic Pat Boone defined a miracle on the PTL Club as the sun rising or “when I get up in the morning and put on my pants.” To try to convince someone who defines miracles in this manner that “miracles have ceased” is a complete waste of time. Has the sun ceased to rise? Do I not have my pants on? If so, then miracles have not ceased. However, a responsible treatment of the topic cannot accept this type of definition for miracles.
