What do you think is the major hinderance for the church of today to perform the miracles that...
Jesus and the Apostles did? Why aren't we experiencing the miracles that were recorded in the first-century church today? Do you think there is still the move of God there was then? Why or why not?
I always wondered that about God not as present today as then. Because it seems like if her were there would be more believers. I don't know, except that God wants us to live by faith, and I do believe there are still miracles happening just now it is on a more personal level and not so noticeable to us.
Thanks Diane! Miracles are not as noticeable as then, because of a few things I believe:
1) Our reliance upon them.
2) Our faith in them
3) We have not been taught correctly concerning our authority and 'power of attorney' given to us through the atonement of Christ
All three of these play a major role in, what I believe to be, infallible proof.
We need to train disciples to carry out the tasks set before us. Christ told US to go in His Name, or in His stead (as Power of Attorney) or on His behalf. I believe that this is what either makes us or breaks us as miracle-workers...
The MIRACLES reported performed by Christ, or by His Apostles in the Holy Bible were performed by God, through the prayerful requests of either Jesus or in the case of His Apostles through Jesus intercession with God. There are many many miracles happening by God throughout the world even today, but we are not always made aware of them.
I agree with Dave and for the same reason. The world in Jesus' day was tiny in comparison to our world today. Thus, I am not convinced that we are not experiencing the same miracles as first century believers, only more so.
whatever is not of faith, is SIN -
people are looking to prayer shawls, shofar's, fasting, feast days, books, guru's, self help and etc -
Jesus is the only way and when people commit "spiritual adultery" by placing their faith is rock music, tv shows, psychology, when they should be looking to Jesus and His Word -
Prayer shawls are a joke - even in Corinthians we are told not to cover our heads "men" and it has to do with things like this, which actually "replace" the Holy Spirit and or Jesus who is our true and only "covering"
In effect a shawl, a mentor, a shofar, a particular prayer, hebraic roots movement and more are all saying, that Jesus did not do enough at the cross, which of course is untrue -
The church is where it is because they have compromised and shaken hands with the world
by Elizabeth Knott 4 years ago
Christianity today is so full of compromise. The world impacts the church, much more than the church impacts the world. So with that being said, do you believe that the church today has placed limitations on God and the occurence of miracles in the world are simply because of our lack of obedience?

i want to know, do you believe that someone with the power of Jehovah through his son Jesus Christ (for example, a pastor, prophet etc)can heal someone with incurable disease like HIV AIDS, Cancer and also have the power to chase out evil and demonic spirits?

Why has the modern Christian Church drifted so far away from its roots in New Testament ChristianityIf we look at the example of the New Testament Church our churches today can't compare to commitment, seriousness, and higher purpose. I have some ideas, but I was just wondering if anyone else has...

The 'Gods' were aliens. Just look at cave paintings. Jesus didn't perform miracles, he was an alien using his technology to create the illusion of miracles.Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.--Arthur C. Clarke
